Celebrate The Ottawa Senators Home Opener With Canadian Tire

"Hello out there, we're on the air, it's Hockey Night tonight.
 Tension grows, the whistle blows, and the puck goes down the ice.
 The goalie jumps, and the players bump, and the fans all go insane.
 Someone roars "Bobby scores!" at the good ole' hockey game." 

Canada and hockey go together like bacon and eggs.

Basically, if you live in Canada, you are born loving hockey. Although many play the sport, few are great at it, but that doesn't matter, because we can all appreciate a good ole' hockey game, right? After all, it's the best game you can name.

I've been cheering on the The Ottawa Senators forever, and maybe, just maybe, this will be the year they'll finally take home the Stanley Cup.

The 2015-2016 season is about to kick-off, and I'm SO excited. Seriously. So pumped. The first home game will be on Sunday, October 11th at the Canadian Tire Centre.

Canadian Tire wants to get hockey fans in the mood for the first game, so starting tomorrow, the Canadian Tire Hockey Truck (see picture below? It's pretty hard to miss!) will be at different locations around the city to get everyone excited for the upcoming hockey season. There will be fun activities for the entire family, so bring the kids, since they'll be off from school. A perfect start to the long weekend!

You can take part in games and activities and you'll even get the chance to receive autographs from past and present Ottawa Senators hockey players. Of course, lot of prizes are up for grabs, too.

Here's where you can find the #CTHockeyTruck this long weekend:

Escape to Chicago: Where to Stay, Dine, and Shop

I had the great pleasure of once again joining Choose Chicago on a press trip to experience the vibrant city of Chicago. Chicago was recently voted the Best Big City in America and as usual, Chicago was a dream, and I can't wait to return. (To read more about all the fun things to do in Chicago if you're planning a trip to the Windy City for your next holiday escape, you can read my article in Canadian Geographic Travel ).  Here are a few highlights that'll help you plan your next Chicago trip with ease--how to get there, where to stay, where to dine, and what to do:  Porter Airlines Travelling during the pandemic can be challenging, but my flight with Porter Airlines made the experience smooth, comfortable, and safe.

The Hazelton Hotel Voted Number Three Best Hotel In Canada

Every trip to Toronto is made even more memorable for me when I stay at The Hazelton Hotel, located right in the heart of luxurious Yorkville.  I've had the pleasure of staying at the Hazelton Hotel many times over the last several years, and with each visit, I fall in love with the hotel even more. The Hazelton Hotel is most definitely a perfect escape for a couple looking for a romantic getaway and it's also perfect for a best friends weekend trip, a work retreat, or simply, any visit to Toronto. The Hazelton is "Canada's first and only Forbes five-star independent luxury boutique hotel" and though it's considered a boutique hotel because it only has 77 (very spacious) rooms and suites, it feels very grand and luxurious. The hotel is constantly ranked the #1 hotel in Toronto on TripAdvisor (five years and counting!) and was just voted the N umber Three Best Hotel in Canada  Conde Nast Traveller's 2022 Readers' Choice Awards. I have to agree, becaus
