Things to do in Canada

If you’re visiting Toronto, take a helicopter tour of Niagara Falls for a bird’s eye view of the magnificent Horseshoe and American Falls. Or hop aboard the Maid of the Mist boat for a closer look (and a few splashes). Once you’re back on dry land, head to the Royal Ontario Museum to check out its huge art collection, or dance the night away at one of the bars at West Queen West. The French province of Québec has some of the most exciting things to do in Canada.

In Montréal, stroll around the Old Port, the perfect setting for people watching and outdoor dining. Dig into its local cuisine–it’s the city with the largest number of restaurants per capita in North America. If you visit Montréal in late June or early July, make sure you snag tickets to the International Jazz Festival. For those who prefer the great outdoors, there are plenty of things to do in Canada. Alberta has gorgeous lakes, rivers and forests for hiking, and is an ideal location for seeing the Northern Lights aboard a dogsled. Mont Tremblant in Québec and Whistler in British Columbia are two of the best ski regions in Canada.
