Summer may be coming to a close, but for many tourism operators across Canada who saw a late start to the season because of COVID-19 shutdowns, now is the perfect time to extend the season. With the weather starting to cool, there are still plenty of outdoor attractions to take in (bonus: less crowding in the fall). Also in this week’s newsletter, an ode to a glorious summer when people truly appreciated and enjoyed the outdoors.
