Re: Canada

I on the West Coast, in British Columbia. I live in the Okanagan Valley and I can't imagine living in a more beautiful (although it is very expensive!) place We have tons of festivals and events here. We are the wine capital of Canada...there are wineries everywhere. Come check out the beautiful sites, do a wine tour, and spend your evenings at a little bed and breakfast

Re: Canada

I vote BC area too. Vancouver all the way.
I'm in Southern Ontario & anything too far south of the GTA is lame.
Montreal is BEAUTIFUL. so much character, culture & scenery. I LOVE it there.

I might be biased but I think Alberta is where it's at.

If I'm doing romance, I'd go for Victoria, BC. I've also heard that Quebec City, QC is romantic. The vineyards in the Okanagan Valley are beautiful.

For adventure, maybe Alberta. Or surfing in Tofino, BC. I've never been to the East Coast, but I'm dying to go there.

Canada really is a fantastic country.

If I was going for romantic, I'd choose to go to Banff, Alberta or Montreal or Quebec City, Quebec. I love all three cities.

Re: Canada

I vote for Quebec City for romance. Coming as a non-French-speaking Texan who married into a Quebec City family!

You could hit 1 province and territory every year and it would be like going to 13 different countries

Re: Canada

If you hate large crowds and want to do some adventurous things I would recommend the maritimes. You can hit up the bay of fundy and go tidal bore rafting (seriously, check it out) you can quickly travel to all 3 maritime provinces (New Brunswick, PEI, Nova Scotia) There is TONS of history out there if that's what you're into. There are also a lot of music festivals/local stuff going on all over.
I would definitely recommend taking the Cabot Trail in Cape Breton. PEI is always beautiful, red beaches, beautiful farm land, if you're a foodie it's definitely a great place to find some unique and delicious eats at nice restaurants.


Personally I would never recommend Vancouver/Toronto/Montreal/Calgary etc to anyone for a first time vacation to Canada. Just me, but I don't feel like a big concrete slab with tall buildings captures our culture at all. It's not like any of our large cities are lacking something any of the large cities in the US are lol
