Whether you’re looking for a weekend getaway or a week-long adventure, there’s always something for you to do and see in Canada. No matter where you are, in the country or abroad, there’s a new experience waiting for you.

Check out one of these amazing destinations for your next summer vacation or winter getaway.



One of the best places for winter sports is Banff, Alberta. It is a place best visited in wintertime, where you can experience all the town has to offer. From incredible skiing destinations to skating on Lake Louise by moonlight, there’s an outdoor adventure for anyone of any skill level.

For a relaxing experience, enjoy one of the Canadian Rockies Hot Springs no matter what time of year. For a summer visit, the lake is perfect for a kayaking expedition and there are many great places to hike and explore. Banff houses for sale are pretty inexpensive right now.

You may end up loving it here so much, you never want to leave.


Another great spot for a winter vacation, Whistler has some of the best ski conditions in the country. Snowboarding, snowmobiling, snowshoeing – if it has the word “snow” in it, you can be sure it’s available on your trip to Whistler.

They also have a plethora of things to do year-round that include yoga sessions, spas, and eateries. To complete your trip, make sure you take a ride on the Peak 2 Peak Gondola for an unforgettable experience.

Niagara Falls

One of the world’s most beautiful natural attractions, Niagara Falls is located just along the Canadian/United States border by Buffalo, New York. It isn’t one of the 7 Wonders of the World, but 30 million tourists visit here each year, so you know it’s something special.

Get wet on the Hornblower (or the Maid of the Mist if you’re on the New York side) and see the falls from below for an iconic tourist experience, or view the falls up high from the SkyWheel at night.


Monreal is the perfect city destination, with a blend of historical and modern charm. Whether you speak French or English, you’ll be greeted here with open arms and leave with a full stomach. With a wide variety of different cuisines, there’s something to eat here no matter what your taste.

There is also a lot of culture and history, like at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth Hotel, where John Lennon and Yoko Ono held one of their bed-ins for peace in 1969.


If sports are your cup of tea, Toronto has more than anywhere else in Canada. From rugby to hockey to baseball, there is something here for any sports lover.

Explore the city at night and grab a delicious bite to eat or catch a broadway show downtown.



Calgary is best visited in summertime, where you can enjoy their biggest tourist draw – the Calgary Stampede. This event takes place over two weeks in July and offers rodeo shows, carnival food, and games that will please the whole family.

If you’re a fan of folk music or blues, Calgary also offers music festivals each year to suit any musical preference.
