Dwight, Ontario (PRWEB) September 14, 2009
Located approximately two and a half hours north of Toronto, Algonquin Provincial Park has been a favourite destination for tourists, wildlife and nature enthusiasts, as well as artists and photographers for over one hundred years. Rich in history, the park is a protected wilderness sanctuary of magnificent forests, lakes, rivers and wetlands. Home to a staggering variety of plant and animal life, within its borders lives 53 species of mammals, 272 species of birds, 31 species of reptiles and amphibians, 54 species of fish, and approximately 7000 species of insects. As well, Algonquin Park has museums, information centres and educational programs. The park offers a wide variety of activities and special events throughout the year. Using their expertise and local knowledge of the park, Algonquin Lakeside Inn, situated just minutes from the park's western boundary, has created an Algonquin Park blog (http://www.algonquininn.blogspot.com) to help park visitors plan their Algonquin Park visit.
"We decided to create our Algonquin Park blog so that visitors can learn all about the park and everything that it has to offer," states Gary Schultz, owner of Algonquin Lakeside Inn. "The blog provides visitors with a wealth of current park information. We know firsthand about everything that is happening in the park because we are right there. The blog also gives people the chance to write their comments, giving a broader perspective and different points of view," says Schultz.
The Algonquin Inn blog is valuable resource of Algonquin Park, Muskoka and Haliburton area information. Filled with terrific photographs taken of the park, its wildlife and the surrounding area, the blog highlights many special Algonquin Park events, area happenings and local area conditions. For example, a recent posting informs blog readers about an astronomy workshop scheduled for the fall. As well, the blog contains informative reports and interesting articles from various publications. For those planning an Algonquin Park vacation, the blog offers a number of special Algonquin Park accommodation packages. People planning an Algonquin Park getaway can choose from a number of resort packages that combine value added incentives such as educational materials and recreational equipment, or interesting activities such as wilderness tours, photographic excursions and canoe trips, designed to compliment any Algonquin Park visit.
There is so much to see and do in Algonquin Park and every season is different. As the park is so vast, it takes many visits to explore it thoroughly and know it well. "A first time visitor to the park may not be aware, for example, that May is the best time for moose watching. Local experts know where to find a particular species at any given time of the year. Information like this is where the Algonquin Inn blog can help people get the most out of their park visit. As well, readers can learn about the many guided wilderness experience adventures that are available, including Wilderness Tours, Photography Tours and Photography Workshops," adds Schultz.
