5 Canadian great drives to take this summer

(NC) As Canadians, we don't have to go across the world to witness stunning natural beauty. We have the opportunity to explore our beautiful scenery from the comfort of our vehicles.

It is, however, such a vast country with some of the most picturesque landscapes, so where to start? Before jumping into your car and hitting the road, take a look at five of the most popular drives in Canada, some of which may surprise you:

1. Chatham-Kent Corridor, Ontario

Enjoy a scenic drive along the coastline of the Thames River, Lake St. Clair and Lake Erie. As you meander and trace the shores of these three waterways, be sure to stop and enjoy small town life and local restaurants. The postcard worthy drive along Highway 3 is a must for history buffs. Historical sites include stops on the Underground Railroad and pathways used by British Loyalists during the war of 1812.

2. Sea to Sky Highway, British Columbia

Between Vancouver and Whistler, the combination of mountain views and beautiful coastline will take your breath away. While you wind along the side of mountains, try to keep your eyes on the road. The clear views of ocean as far as the eye can see to your other side will ensure that this drive is unforgettable. As you journey on, the natural treasures never cease to impress. Break up the drive with stops at the Tantalus Range Lookout, Shannon Falls and Watershed Grill.

3. Winnipeg, Manitoba

Driving through the prairies can be a relaxing and serene experience, with an abundance of majestic natural views. The Yellowhead Highway, which begins in Winnipeg and travels up Highway 16 to Russell, Manitoba, is paved with a charming collection of small towns, each seamlessly tucked into the hillside.

4. Eastern Townships, Quebec

A drive through the Eastern Townships of Quebec will make you feel as if you've left Canadian soil and made your way to France. Stops along the way will allow you to enjoy local wineries, French style bed and breakfasts and even a Benedictine monastery.

5. Fundy Coastal Drive, New Brunswick

Recognized the world-over as an awe-inspiring destination, driving the Bay of Fundy coastline offers un-paralleled majestic views. Visit the Hopewell Rocks and then watch them disappear as the tide comes in. Drive further down the bay and see if you can spot a whale or discover fossil-filled mudflats along the coastal islands.

But be sure you don't run into car trouble. Many of these drives are remote so plan ahead with vehicle maintenance so you don't get stuck.

“Before you head out this summer it's important to get your car checked thoroughly to make sure things are running smoothly,” says Darryl Croft, automotive maintenance expert at OK Tire. “Checking the basics such as making sure your car battery, wiper blades and tires are in good shape can make the difference between a memorable road trip and one that's memorable for the wrong reasons.”
