Hi there,

Thats a pretty broad question since Canada is so big and the landscape so diverse. What kind of travel do you like? Do you prefer big cities, small towns, history, partying, eco adventure, self guiding, tours? Most people that visit go to the east or west coast due to the spectacular scenery. Being that I am from the west coast, I would have to recommend british columbia. Vancouver island is very popular as well as whistler. Lots of people head over to Banff national park and check out the rocky mountains. If big cities are your thing, you might like to go to the east coast as montreal and toronto are very popular destinations. Either way, you will find amazing places all over the country the central praires and arctic included.

If you are looking for a beautiful resort town then go for Whistler. I think you can even do skiing over there if you travel before summer. Reply to this

If you are looking for an adventure, visit Newfoundland and Labrador! Newfoundland definitely has the most beautiful sunsets, or as I call them, Blazing Horizons! Check out my blog for great info and pics and you'll be convinced to travel to this secret paradise!!! Reply to this

Hi there ... there seems to have been a few people suggesting beautiful places on the western coast but what about Niagra Falls?!?! Half is in Canada and its totally worth a trip. In my opinion the Canada side is much much more pretty than the USA side.

Also Quebec has some amazing attractions 😊 Reply to this

I love:

Toronto and Vancouver, but I dont like Edmonton or Calgary. Thats my advice. Obviously you can get to Niagra Falls from Toronto easily and you can get to Whistler from Vancouver easily, so go there. I also wanted to go to Montreal as i hear thats a great place but unfortunately didnt. Ive been to Toronto about 4 times and edmonton and calgary about 4 times each too. Hope that helps. I like Canadians a lot too Reply to this

Visit Vancouver Island! It is truly one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. Victoria has amazing hiking, kayaking, or almost and kind of nature-activity you could hope to engage in and gorgeous rainforests and beaches. There are also a lot of incredible attractions, like the Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre or Butchart Gardens. Reply to this

vancouver island , actually the whole west coast is spectacular only problem is the east coast specifically newfoundland is just as spectacular and it's very very inexpensive the food is amazing and the people are very friendly. in the middle of the country there is the saguenay and gaspe regions in quebec and alquoquin park in ontario, but nothing beats the coasts for sheer beauty. the only cities that can be termed " beautiful" are vancouver and montreal, quebec city Reply to this

I agree with the Banff posts above, though I think special mention should be made of Yoho and Jasper as well. In terms of architectural beauty, I'd vote for Ottawa. Parliament Hill is a gorgeous location. Reply to this

Yeah, I was definitely going to say Banff, as one.

Although, I have a special place in my heart for the REALLY remote places. This perhaps is helped by my friend who lives in the Northwest Territories, doing linguistic research around the Yellowknife area. He's slightly crazy: he is still planning to tow a small dinghy up there with his VW Jetta, and use it to ROW ACROSS the lake from Yellowknife to Detah every day. Granted, only 2 miles or so, but still....

Vancouver is definitely nice, but I agree with rlmuk: the East Coast is getting no love. When I was a teenager I used to love driving from New England into Quebec, and going as far North as I could. There are some beautiful parks around there, and Quebec City itself has tons of history and character. Plus they speak French: sort of like visiting a weird France, but by car, in 10 hours, from New England.

For my money, though, the Maritimes on the East Coast are fantastic. Parts of Nova Scotia are absolutely stunning. And the stretchs of road between points in Newfoundland are DESERTED.... tons of moose along the road there, drove my Volvo through a blizzard up there once. One of the more sublime sights I've ever seen was sitting at L'Anse aux Meadows (incidentally, a UNESCO World Heritage Site), sitting on the hood of my Volvo, staring across the sea to Labrador. I highly recommend it.

Here are some pics of the area. Basically, it's what New England looked like 60 years ago (I think, I'm a young un myself): Newfoundland and Labrador Reply to this

nice pictures there euro melb, i enjoyed that par tof Canada as well... i like the west coast a lot, from the queen charlotte islands over to Stewart area which is right up near the entrance into Alaska. Vancouver Island is too nice for words as well, full of lakes and woods.

Well, Because Canada is very big, i can tell some interesting places of toronto....


1. Queen Street West - The Queen West district in Toronto boasts the city's most eclectic and odd mix of stores, restaurants, street vendors, musicians, and other assorted characters. The street has a distinct Soho feel to it. Start at the corner of Queen and University and wander west from there. Some stops not to miss on your Queen West tour: lunch at the Shanghai Cowgirl restaurant (trying to find it is half the fun!), buying handmade soaps at Lush, a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon mid-afternoon in the Drake Hotel lounge.


2. Amsterdam Brewery - This wonderful craft brewery was Toronto's very first brew pub, established in 1986. It is currently located at 21 Bathurst Street. The Amsterdam makes over 15 different beers, from light lagers to dark Irish stout. For $6, you can take the brewery tour and sample 8 different Amsterdam beers. For an extra $2, you can take home a brewery pint glass as well. If you enjoy artisan beers, this is the place you want to be in Toronto.

3. Centre Island - Centre Island is the largest of a collection of tiny islands a ten minute ferry ride from Toronto's waterfront. If you travel to Toronto between June and September, this is a great place to explore once you have had your fill of the "city life". Centre Island's main attraction is "Centreville"~ an amusement park filled with rides and games. The island also has great beaches and a boardwalk. The ferries travel from the harbourfront to the Islands Monday to Sunday about every half hour from June through September.



All the Best

Sam

Montreal is a great city to visit. It is full of character and the people you meet there are some of the nicest people in the world. I went on a trip with , it was one of those Niagara Falls Trips that takes you through different Canadian cities and I would have to say I liked Montreal the best.

I'd recommend Sleeping Giant Provincial Park in Ontario, just east of Thunder Bay. Hike to the top of the giant and check out the view from over 1200 ft over Lake Superior. Gorgeous. Reply to this

Victoria, BC is a beautiful place to be in the winter months, if you don't like snow.
