Canada - A Wonderful Place To Spend Your Vacations

Published at 07/15/2011 18:38:34

 Canada is a North American country consisting of ten provinces and three territories. Located in the northern part of the continent, it extends from the Atlantic Ocean in the east to the Pacific Ocean in the west and northward into the Arctic Ocean. It is the world's second largest country by total area. Canada's common border with the United States to the south and northwest is the longest in the world.

 When you arrive in Canada, you'll immediately notice that you get more with a Canadian dollar than you do with an American dollar. Kid’s meals are about half the price of the US and family tickets for visitor attractions, theme parks and museums can stretch your holiday budget effortlessly. With Canada's very low crime rate, safe streets (day and night) walking home to your hotel with your family after an evening out can be done without fear or worry you might walk down "the wrong street". Ski resorts have activities available to all the family and most are open all year regardless of weather - there is more to do than snow sports. Theme parks can be found dotted all over the country. Museums, art galleries, theatres, science centers, outdoor activities and parks are in abundance in Canada. Many hotels have special rates for children where they stay for cheap or sometimes free. Restaurants also have similar offers.

 Coming up with a Canada vacation that suits you is not hard as there are so many choices. From music festivals and parties to communing with nature, Canada vacations are wide-ranging. Quebec City boasts cobblestone walkways, well-preserved 17th century architecture, French cafés, a largely French-speaking population, and the only North American fortress walls that still exist north of Mexico. The city is like a step back in time and across the ocean - truly unique. Cape Breton is an island famous for its Celtic heritage, which visitors may enjoy through the music, food and charm of the people. Cape Breton is also home to one of the world's most beautiful drives: the Cabot Trail. Whistler is most famous as a ski destination - one of the best in the world - and this is thanks to two spectacular mountains, Whistler and Blackcomb that loom a mile above the village and provide over 8000 acres of skiable terrain. Ontario has a superb network of provincial parks, the first and most popular of which is Algonquin Park. Covering 7,725 square kilometers of lakes and forests, bogs and rivers, cliffs and beaches, Algonquin can be explored by foot or canoe in its interior or is more accessible by car along the Highway 60 where eight campgrounds, 14 trails, education programs, and Algonquin’s superlative Visitor Centre and Logging Museum also offer visitors the chance to commune with nature. Toronto is comparable to Chicago or New York in that all are big, lively, multicultural cities that offer a lot to visitors. Toronto is Canada's largest city and financial center. Niagara Falls, Canada, is home to the Horseshoe Falls, the most powerful waterfall in North America and possibly the best-known in the world. Like staring into a campfire, you'll be mesmerized by the sheer volume and natural force of the more than 6 million cubic feet of water thundering over its brink every minute.
