Canada is such a huge country. There are a lot of places to visit and a lot of things to see. Because of the size of it all, it can be tricky to know where to start when planning a trip. There are things for everyone, though, depending on the type of vacation you are after. Here are some recommendations of things you could do, and places you could visit.
If you are deciding to visit the east of the country, Niagara Falls just has to be on your to-do list. On the US and Canadian border, it is also worth a visit if you are traveling in that area of the US too. Niagara Falls is quite simply stunning; such a wonder to behold. That isn’t all in the area either. You can take the Maid of the Mist Tour, which is a boat trip around the waters. You could then explore the town nearby. It is set up for the areas touristy appeal, and there are plenty of fairground and theme park style rides around.
Not too far from the Falls, you will find Toronto. It is a well-known city, and you can see why. The shopping is fantastic, as well as its famous restaurants and skyscrapers, like the CN Tower. It was once the world’s tallest building, so it is worth a visit to see it. Toronto has everything you need in a city. There is an aquarium, museums, art gallery and parks.
If you fancy something a bit further out, then why not head out to Whistler? It was host to the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, so it would be advised to visit during the winter season. It has quite a long winter sports season, though. The best snow fall is from November to May, and there is always a lot of snow. It has amazing ski resorts and plenty of acres of pistes. Don’t let no experience of skiing put you off visiting. You could enrol in some ski courses to get some experience and learn the ropes.
This is a beautiful area of the world. If you love breathtaking scenery and plenty of seafood, then this area is for you. It has quite a moderate climate all year round, so makes it a good choice for visiting anytime. There are plenty of boat trips, lakes and lighthouses to visit, coming from the areas nautical heritage.
This large, French-speaking area has some of Canada’s largest and most beautiful countryside. The area is full of small, pretty towns and even has some great ski resorts. There are plenty of moose too! You could visit Quebec City too and see the large and striking Château Frontenac. Montreal is in the area too, and that is certainly worth a visit too. There are a lot of festivals in Montreal, and it is a sophisticated and rather laid back city.
