Impromptu road trip in four easy steps
(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 www.daysinn.ca 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.
