Discover the beautiful sights of various Canadian provinces on this road trip, which promises culture, beauty and excitement. Starting from Toronto, a world class city where you can enjoy everything from five-star dining to great parks, art galleries to sporting events, this trip truly has something for every kind of traveler. Depart from Toronto and head to the World Wonder of Niagara Falls, where, after finding your inner child on Lundy’s Lane, getting sprayed on the Maid of the Mist and indulging in casino fun, you’ll be ready to head to the Thousand Island’s area where you should really check out Boldt Castle on Heart Island.

In Ottawa, Canada’s capital city, you can visit the Governor General’s residence or skate the Rideau Canal at night in the winter before heading to the resort town of Tremblant, which is fun no matter the season. You will find old world European charm in Montréal and Québec City, but don’t let the cobblestone streets fool you—there is every imaginable modern amenity here, too. Continue on, exploring cities like Rimouski, Sainte-Anne-des-Monts and Carleton, stopping where you wish.

When you're in Saint John a must-see is Fundy National Park and the tides at the Bay of Fundy before you head on to Moncton and Charlottetown, two cities steeped in culture and history. Take a ferry over to West Bay and take the Cabot Trail along Cape Breton Island before heading to your final stop in Halifax where you can check out museums, natural areas like Peggy’s Cove, and a host of great restaurants and festivals.
