Im­promptu road trip in four easy steps

Seaway News - - AUTO TALK -

(NC)—Plan­ning a fam­ily vacation this sum­mer? No need to cross bor­ders or board a plane. Hop in your car and head out for a great, old-fash­ioned road trip.

1. Pack your bags. Grab a bag and throw in some clothes. Don't for­get your cam­era and sweater (it might be sum­mer, but it can still get chilly in some north­ern parts of Canada).

2. Gas up. Don't for­get to fill your tank. As a mem­ber of the Wyn­d­ham Re­wards pro­gram, you can re­deem your points for gas cards. You can visit to sign up for your free Wyn­d­ham Re­wards mem­ber­ship, and stay at any Days Inn lo­ca­tion across the coun­try to start earn­ing points.

3. Drive. Within a short drive from where you live, you can ex­pe­ri­ence the di­ver­sity of the sec­ond largest coun­try in the world. From Van­cou­ver head north to Prince Ge­orge, from Ed­mon­ton head south to Cal­gary, from Toronto head east to Mon­treal, and from Syd­ney head west to Oro­mocto. There's a world to see in our own back­yard. For those more ad­ven­tur­ous types, cir­cle a ran­dom spot on a map of your area, some­where you've never vis­ited, some­where within driv­ing dis­tance, say four or five hours away, to ex­pe­ri­ence the un­known.

4. Stop and En­joy. Any­where you choose to go, there's some­thing new and ex­cit­ing to see and do. With over 90 lo­ca­tions across Canada, a Days Inn is just a stone's throw from where ever you might be vis­it­ing, where you can en­joy free Day­break Café break­fast, free high-speed In­ter­net and SolTerre shower ex­pe­ri­ence of­fered ex­clu­sively there.

With an in­cred­i­ble col­lec­tion of cities and towns, at­trac­tions and desti­na­tions, cul­ture and ad­ven­tures within a few hours from where you live, there is cer­tainly no short­age of places to go and things to see and do in Canada. But wher­ever you de­cide to go this sum­mer, al­ways be safe in your trav­els.
