Trips on Canada's Atlantic coast often spend time in the Maritime Provinces, well-known for their unique seaside culture, small fishing villages and rich traditions. In Halifax, you might visit the Maritime Museum or St. Paul's Anglican Church. Ferry tours take in the area's scenic shoreline dotted by sailboats and charming lighthouses. The Bay of Fundy and famous Peggy's Cove are only a short drive away.
Explore nearby Saint John, where a beautifully restored waterfront is a nice backdrop to the city's picturesque harbor. A stop in Charlottetown will lead you to quaint 19th-century houses, Prince Edward Island National Park and an interesting shipbuilding museum near Port Hill.
West of the Maritimes, the Old World lures of Canada's Quebec province await. At the heart of Quebec City is the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Old Quebec, filled with centuries-old structures now housing art galleries, cafes and gourmet restaurants. Peruse outdoor markets offering antiques and handicrafts in stylish Montreal, or wander the city's old cobblestone streets and historic neighborhoods. Montreal is also a popular place for music and film festivals and is home to former Olympic venues.
In Canada's largest city, Toronto, sightseeing might include a visit to sprawling Queens Park, stately University Avenue, the Provincial Parliament Buildings or CN Tower, one of the tallest structures in the world. Embark on an exhilarating boat ride and witness Mother Nature's power first-hand at nearby Niagara Falls, then explore the enchanting village and wineries of Niagara-on-the-Lake.
On Canada's Pacific coast, visit cosmopolitan Vancouver in British Columbia or stroll through the beautiful inner harbor of Victoria, the provincial capital considered to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Yoho National Park is famous for a natural bridge chiseled through rock by the Kicking Horse River and for its stunning glacial lakes, particularly Emerald Lake.
The Canadian Rockies in the province of Alberta lend their spectacular beauty to two national parks. Banff National Park encompasses lush valleys, thriving forests and massive glaciers. Visitors can ride the gondola to the top of Sulphur Mountain for views of six mountain ranges. To the north, Jasper National Park offers Maligne Canyon, carved by churning waters. Six bridges throughout the steep gorge provide scenic overlooks. Rail trips in this region are especially popular.
Experience Alberta's cowboy culture in Calgary, home to an annual 10-day rodeo that attracts upward of one million visitors. Trace the history of the western provinces in places like Fort Calgary and Heritage Park, Canada's largest living history museum.
You can also observe polar bears near Churchill in Manitoba in October and November.
