Canada is one of those countries that isn’t usually high on the bucket list. Of course, it may be on there. But personally, I think many of us explore or aspire to visit some of the most popular locations like the USA or Australia, for example. However, Canada is a vast and fascinating country and one of the most diverse places offering so many different types of holidays.
Whether you want the sun and beautiful coasts, the great outdoors with plenty to do and explore, or you enjoy all things winter sports, Canada has a location to suit. I wanted to share with you some of the places in Canada that you should visit, and why this country should definitely be on the list, or if it already is, then why you should be making it a priority to visit.
I am going to start with the province I used to live in and that is Ontario. I used to live in Toronto, but there is more to see and do in this area. Ontario borders the US and also The Great Lakes. With many locations offering quality pitstop points you really will find exploring much easier to do. Toronto is a bustling city and is the capital of Ontario, but let’s not forget other locations worth of visit such as Ottawa. In Toronto, you have the CN Tower with its revolving restaurant, definitely worth a visit, and in Ottawa, you have Parliament Hills and the stunning architecture to peruse. Sometimes there really is beauty in the most unlikely of places and experiences still worth your bucket list.
If you want to feel a different type of culture then why not head over the Quebec. This is a predominantly French-speaking province and it can really offer you a different vibe altogether, feeling like you have actually left the country. Why not take a trip to Quebec City, the capital of this province. There you will find some amazing sites such as the Place Royale and the historic harbor. It really retains its colonial core which many will love, and it could certainly be an exciting place to explore.
Offering a different vibe once again you have British Columbia, the most western province and famed for its Pacific coastline. If you like your hiking or more active things to do then the Glacier National Park really could suit you, with plenty of hiking and biking trails that you can follow. However, if you are partial to a bit of skiing then Whistler Blackcomb is the place to be. If you are still after a city vibe then Vancouver and the capital Victoria can really satisfy your need for the hustle and bustle of fabulous city life.
Exciting train journeys
If you’re looking to do something completely different in Canada then maybe consider an exciting train journey. There are lots of different routes to choose from, each varying in length depending on where you want to go. Maybe you fancy a cross country adventure from Toronto to Vancouver or if you’re travelling with children, something shorter like Quebec City to Halifax would be better suited. Regardless of where you choose, you’re bound to witness once in a life time views on your journey.
So there you have it, some of the highlights of Canada. I hope that this has enticed you to visit and look a little more closely at what it has to offer.
