Canada is one of the most sprawled out countries on Earth, covering enough land that it would take you six days to drive from one corner of it to the other without stopping. If you know you want a vacation spot for your family, this can feel like a lot to have to choose from. Fortunately, some cities and destinations still come out ahead against all of the others! Here are the top Canadian vacation spots out there and what you can do while you’re in town!
Although this one may seem obvious, it’s a big vacation spot for a reason. Niagara Falls manages to make us feel small and in awe whenever we stare them down. Luckily, there’s more to do on a visit to the falls than look at them! Local athletic sports, like ziplining safely towards the falls, can add more intrigue. When you leave the falls and need to take a breather, the Niagara Botanical Gardens are there to catch you. Sprawling natural beauty is cared for and creatively laid out for you to enjoy. Your family can pack a picnic, go to the falls, and then enjoy lunch to avoid the crowds.
Banff National Park
A visit to this park will inspire you to start digging for nearby Calgary homes for sale so you can move out! Breathtaking snowy mountain views will have you stunned for the first few hours after you arrive. After that, you’ll be breathless from excitement as you take on a skiing slope! Banff is nationally known as the go-to vacation spot where you can cut loose and have fun while staying close to the natural beauty that Canada has to offer. There’s no place on Earth like it, and you’ll never want to leave once you arrive.
Prince Edward Island
Although this island was the top vacation spot in Canada for an endless amount of time, it’s now slow and comfortable enough where you’ll be able to enjoy the beach vibes without getting stressed. You can take the chance to learn some history at the Green Gables historical building or enjoy the beaches and trails along the Prince Edward Island National Park. Although this island is better known for its views, it has some of the best seafood and freshwater fish restaurants you can find! Drop into the Blue Mussel Cafe and enjoy eating like a local!
This city is world-renowned as a vacation destination. Whether it’s because of how close it is to Whistler or because of the sights and party attitude, countless families visit Vancouver every year. For braver kids, you can take them out to the suspension bridge park, where they’ll be breathless as they look down at the gorgeous scenery far beneath them.
