Vacation; we all love it. It's a time to escape the everyday and just relax. The one thing we wish we could all skip about vacation is the long lines at the airport. Luckily, there’s an island getaway down south right here in Ontario that requires no long security checks – Pelee Island!
No matter where we go and when we like to travel, vacationing is all about one of two things: escapism or discovery. We are either taking a break from our every day lives and routines, or we are trying to discover a new destination and its culture. When you're looking for discovery, taking part in local hands-on experiences is the best way to immerse yourself in the local culture and really get to know the community.
