Canada - An Alternative Vacation Destination
Although people don't think about Canada as a potential vacation destination, it has a wide variety of tourist destinations to choose from, along with many activities even the most diverse family will be content with.

Canada is a great vacation spot in the summer if you hate hot weather. Canada offers a much cooler climate in the summer months. In a world where it seems like every nation is at war and you have to be choosy about where you decide to vacation, Canada is at peace and will welcome anybody inside their borders looking for a little rest and relaxation.

While there, you might even be interested to find out that Canada has a history all its own; a fascinating history with fascinating locations, events, as well as activities you may not have known existed in the deep north.

What should you visit in Canada?

Wow, this is hard to answer. Canada is the second largest country in the world – from Alberta to Quebec to Ontario to British Columbia – so that its hard to list all of the potential vacation destinations; however, some of the bigger tourist attractions include the stunning Niagara Falls, beautiful Banff National Park and the majestic Jasper National Park, just to name a few.

What activities are there to do in Canada?

Recreational activities abound throughout Canada. For adventure seekers there is hiking and waterskiing. For the rugged outdoorsman there is abundant hunting and fishing, which never fails to draw hundreds of professional sportsmen year after year. For the hockey fan there is plenty of professional hockey to be had; you can catch either an Edmonton Oilers or the Calgary Flames game. And for those who love to eat (which includes just about everyone) there is great French-Canadian cuisine, in which you can give your taste buds the welcome experience of authentic maple syrup, galumpies and gallettes.

What else is there?

Okay, so you're still not impressed? Well how about these activities then:
- Visit the CN Tower, which is 553.33 meters high.
- Challenge yourself to climb Mount Robson, the tallest mountain in the Canadian Rockies.
- There is also kayaking, boating and whitewater rafting down the Mackenzie River, the longest river in Canada.
- You can also visit Québec; take in an art museum or a culture fair, even some of the hottest night clubs if that's what you are into.

Vacationing in Canada offers a change of scenery and a whole new set of experiences. No matter what your interests you will easily find activities to occupy your time while there and return back to work relaxed, refreshed and recharged, and maybe even looking forward to visiting Canada again next year. Why not? The country is about as big as the U.S., which means you can't see everything in one week, so you will have to go back again, and it's a good bet you'll want to.
