Canada is a beautiful country. Whether you’re visiting for the first time, or it’s your third of fourth trip, planning an excursion to the wide-open possibilities of Canada is always a wonderful idea. Though relatively small in population considering its size, Canada is filled with beautiful cities, gorgeous nature, and breathtaking opportunities. To see Canada as it was meant to be seen, consider visiting one or all of these iconic spots.
Prince Edward Island
Picturesque, with its ocean views and red dirt roads, Prince Edward Island is the home of the fictional character Anne of Green Gables, made famous in the early twentieth century by Lucy Maud Montgomery. You can enjoy Prince Edward Island from a bed and breakfast or hotel, wander the woods, and partake in eating renowned seafood. Peaceful and inviting, Prince Edward Island is a quiet sanctuary and retreat. Quebec
If Europe is too far to travel, consider Quebec for a taste of far-away culture. While you’ll want to brush up on your French, English is also spoken, so you’ll have less travel anxiety visiting this city as an English speaker. The streets of Quebec are more like Europe than most other North American cities, with their brightly painted buildings and old fashioned streets. Enjoy the rich and diverse culture of Quebec, including waterfalls and gorgeous architecture. Montreal, the largest city in Quebec, is home to gardens and museums and well worth the visit. Vancouver
Host to several fantastic vacation opportunities, Vancouver is the third-largest city in Canada. It’s home to fantastic museum opportunities like the Museum of Anthropology, the Maritime Museum, and Science World. Visitors can also reach the stunning Butchart Gardens in Victoria from Vancouver. A seaport, surrounded by mountains, Vancouver boasts some of the best views in Canada, and visitors will find no shortage of enjoyable opportunities.
The largest city in Canada, Toronto boasts fantastic museums, vintage shopping experiences, and a thriving arts and culture scene. You can take a ferry from downtown and have a stroll on the Toronto Islands, or get a bite to eat in the antique Distillery District. To stay up to date on festivals and events happening during your visit, be sure to check out the Toronto news and learn what only locals know.
Without a doubt Canada’s most widely-recognized attraction, Niagara Falls is made up of three waterfalls, and together, they have the highest flow rate of any waterfall in North America. Gorgeous, and easily accessible due to the regular tourist visits, Niagara Falls is a mesmerizing experience sure to stay with you for a lifetime. If you’re in the Niagara Falls area anyway, you might even consider a trip into Upstate New York. You can compare the view of the Falls from both sides and decide for yourself if the Canadian side really is better. You might take a roadtrip through the rural landscape all the way to Cooperstown, where you can visit the Baseball Hall of Fame, book transportation from Cooperstown to Albany International Airport, and fly back home.
For family trips, private getaways, or a roadtrip with friends, Canada offers spectacular opportunities. Whether you’re a Canadian looking to see more of your country, or an American ready to cross the border, Canada offers exciting new adventures, brand-new views, and fresh culture. Whether you stroll through Toronto, visit museums in Montreal, Quebec, or read on the beaches of Prince Edward Island, you’ll enjoy your stay. Consider Canada for your next vacation, and have experiences that will last forever.
