Live large on lobsters on Prince Edward Island
Dine on the freshest lobster in the world on Prince Edward Island. Lobster has been shorthand for culinary luxury worldwide for the best part of 150 years – ever since well-to-do Bostonians and New Yorkers developed a taste for the meat (before that it was considered a peasant’s meal).   But have you ever wondered what life is like for the people who catch the crustaceans?

Get going: Top Notch Tours (markscharters.com) run three times a day during PEI’s lobster season of July and August.

Pedalling around Vancouver’s picturesque Stanley Park
Experience one of Canada's most tranquil city parks in Vancouver. Vancouver’s Stanley Park offers myriad recreational opportunities, be it swimming off one of its pretty beaches, strolling in the botanical or Chinese gardens, marveling at the many landmarks and totems, or relaxing on one of the beautifully kept lawns.
