"A traveloge of southern Manitoba and southern Ontario. This film follows the route of a family from Rockford, Illinois, who set out with tent, boat and car to explore the big Canadian vacationland beyond Lake Superior. They discover modern motels and scenic camp sites; they cruise among the Lake of the Woods' 14,000 islands and cook freshly caught fish over open campfires. The city of Winnipeg, Riding Mountain National Park, and the beautifully cultivated acres of International Peace Garden are other point of their itinerary."
