The Top Tourist Destination Cities in the CANADA

  1. Toronto
    The largest city in Canada and arguably the best-known, Toronto is not the country’s capital (Ottawa is), but it is the Ontarian. Like a more civilised, clean-cut New York, Toronto has its skyscrapers downtown, glitzy shopping in Yorkville and Bohemian districts in Queen Street West. It is also home to the CN Tower, once the world’s tallest, at 1,815 feet.

  2. Niagara Falls
    Straddling the US-Canadian border, Niagara Falls is within reach of Toronto – and well worth it. The three falls combined, the Horseshoe Falls, the American Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls, form the highest flow rate of any waterfall in the world (around 2,400 m3 per second). Once you’ve seen the Falls (take a Maid of the Mist tour), explore the theme park-esque town that lives off the natural wonder’s tourist appeal.

  3. Montreal
    The second largest city in Canada, Montreal is France’s home away from home. The city’s official language is French and spoken by more than half of the population. The French also lend the city its sense of cool, laid-back chic. It is a cultural hub with more than a few international flavours and boasts more than 100 festivals a year.

    Vancouver has been named the “best place to live in the world” more than a few times. The west coast city in British Columbia boasts a buzzy cultural life, a rich platter of ethnically diverse restaurants and a cosmopolitan population.

    The Canadian Rockies span British Columbia and Alberta and is one of the world’s most impressive mountain ranges. Boasting mind-boggling scenery and a number of Canada’s highest peaks, the region is ideal for explorers. There are also a number of ski resorts in the mountain range, including Banff.
