Canada’s Hockey Shrines: FlightHub’s Guide To Canada’s Hockey Obsession

While Canada has produced hockey greats like Wayne Gretzky, Bobby Orr, and Mark Messier, it is also home to some of the world’s most important hockey landmarks. For fans of the game, these buildings are more than bricks and mortar, they are churches. FlightHub understands this as an online travel agency from Montreal, Quebec. I asked that FlightHub review their top Canadian destinations with obvious hockey roots.

The Leafs played their last game at this historic building in February of 1999, moving to their new home, the Air Canada Centre. The decades between featured some of the Leafs most successful runs, including multiple Stanley Cup runs in the 1960s. After some turmoil and fear that the...

Moving from Canada to the United States: What to Expect

Ah, Canada, land of maple syrup, hockey, and free health care. Why would you even want to leave in the first place? Well, it just so happens that if you are moving from Canada to the United States of America, you are guaranteed to expect a few new things.

Discovering North America’s History

Discovering North America’s History

In the past, I had wrote about The New 7 Wonders of the Ancient World  and about the Peruvian Incas; but when you set out to travel America you pick certain things you definitely want to see during your journey, from iconic landmarks and fun-filled attractions to beautiful national parks and lively cities.

However, whatever you get up to while you’re in North America, to make for a rich and full travel experience it’s always important to try to learn a bit more about the culture and history of the country you’re visiting.
