By checking out travel blog sites you can usually get a pretty solid idea on the most popular places to visit in the world. Australia, New Zealand, and South East Asia all feature heavily in terms of where to travel to for the most authentic experiences, but as a traveling blogger, I simply love Canada!
Huge open spaces, amazing scenery, culture, and friendly people everywhere you turn, Canada is a definite must visit. Having said that, we’re talking about a huge country, so where are the best places to visit in Canada?
The great thing about Quebec City is that you’re getting a half Canadian, half French experience, and that is a truly intoxicating mix! The architecture here is beautiful, and dates back to the 117th century. The scent of fresh bread and coffee fills the air, and there is a real pavement cafe vibe to the city, which makes it extremely visitable.
You can’t visit Canada and not check out Toronto! My blogging adventures have taken me to the city on several occasions and I love it just as much as the first time. You’ll find segments of the city that seem to pertain to totally different countries, such as Greece, India, and even Korea, so you really do feel like you’re travelling the world! All of this is placed in such a friendly and cosmopolitan location, with beautiful scenery too.
If you love outdoor adventures, Vancouver is the place for you. Head out surfing, go hiking, bungee jump, even skydive, whatever your adrenaline hit, it’s waiting for you here! There are many markets to check out too, which give you a really cultural and authentic feel, as well as a great, laid-back nightlife vibe.
We talked about a slice of France in Quebec City, and Victoria has a huge slice of Britain in it. Enjoy the wineries in nearby Vancouver Island, breathe in the fresh air in British Colombia’s countryside, or enjoy some of the olde-worlde architecture, all with a cup of British tea, of course!
Talk about a winter wonderland, Whistler has it all! Even if you don’t love skiing, you simply have to take in the stunning alpine views and après ski opportunities on offer here. If you like a little adrenaline, you can certainly find that here too, with bungee jumping a top activity to try.
Another of Canada’s huge cities is Montreal, and another must visit. Head to the old section of the city for architecture dating back to the 17th century, and check out the huge skyscrapers in the newer part of town. You cane enjoy fantastic shopping here, with big brand names, or you can simply enjoy the vibrant nightlife on offer.
Canada is not just a country north of the USA, it is a country that is stunningly beautiful in its own right, and definitely deserves a visit or two.
