VICTORIA (WireService.ca) -- A spa retreat on the west coast, a scenic journey near the Atlantic and a hike in one of Canada’s most beloved national parks are among the highlights of Connect Hearing’s Top 5 Tranquil Destinations to celebrate Mother’s Day.
Rather than treat Mom to brunch at a noisy restaurant, the nation’s largest network of hearing-health clinics suggests the more conscientious gift for Canadians to give this year is an outing to one of the nation’s many serene destinations and it has designated its top five most peaceful locations in advance of Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 13.
“With hearing loss increasing among Canadians of all ages, but particularly those over age 65, we think Mother’s Day is a terrific time to remember all of the many pleasant, quiet places this country has to offer,” says Connect Hearing Director of Professional Practice MJ DeSousa, Audiologist. “Where will you take Mom this year? The urban experience may not be the most ideal one, especially when you have the opportunity to stay connected in a setting that offers immaculate beauty and an escape from the damaging noises in our city cores.”
Here are the Top 5 Most Tranquil Places in Canada for Mother’s Day:
Lake Louise, Alberta — A hike to one of the teahouses at this celebrated spot in Banff National Park offers peacefulness and beauty. You can also enjoy tea in the elegant Fairmont Lake Louise as you watch over the mesmerizing turquoise water amid the Rocky Mountains.
Touring the Cabot Trail, Nova Scotia — Cape Breton’s gem has many charming little towns, outstanding seafood and friendly people to share a laugh with.
Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario — Mom deserves charm and relaxation, and it’s hard to beat a trip to one of the prettiest small cities in the country. Niagara-on-the-Lake features shopping without the bustle, exquisite hotels with all of the finest touches and outstanding dining, too.
Northern Lights, many locations — Gazing up at the stars while in a park or rural community is a quintessentially Canadian activity. It’s also one that doesn’t involve any noise, other than your gasps of awe.
Butchart Gardens, Sidney, British Columbia - Perhaps the most famous gardens in the country, the jewel of Vancouver Island is always a great place for Mom. Along with the pleasant strolls and beautiful buds, it also offers relaxing dining experiences and opportunities for quiet contemplation.
