Canada: One hot road trip

Spectacular natural wonders, a thriving nightlife and world-famous sites from Niagara Falls, Old Quebec to Canada’s breathtaking National Parks.

From the California Business Journal Newswire.

If Canada is your next destination, put this one your list of must-sees:

Niagara Falls

A trip to Canada is not complete until you visit one of the most famous waterfalls in the world. Located between Ontario province in Canada and New York state in the U.S., the most popular section is Horseshoe Falls. With the fastest flow rate of any waterfalls in North America and a 160-foot drop, the Horseshoe Falls is the most powerful waterfall in North America. Tourists and romantic couples flock to see the mighty falls every year. You can see the falls up close by doing the Maid of the Mist tour, in which you travel on a ferry to the brink of the falls. Or you can do the Cave of the Winds tour, in which you’re taken down to the base of Niagara Gorge to get soaked in the sheer force of the water. There are plenty of other places to visit around the area, including restaurants, amusement parks, and the entertaining Clifton Hill district. You could even visit the nearby Casino Niagara, which is one of the best casinos in the country. Alternatively, you may prefer a quiet night in at your hotel after such an exhilarating day. In which case, you could play table games, and slot games at a tried and trusted online casino instead.

Old Quebec

Quebec City includes a walled area known as Old Quebec that dates back to the 1600s. The French originally built the ramparts, and they were refortified by the British, which means this charming city area has an unmistakable European feel.  With Old Quebec’s copper roofs, cobbled streets, and unmistakable quaintness, the area is a magnificent display of Canada’s colonial past. You will love walking the winding alleys and exploring the vibrant life of Quebec’s rich history. Old Quebec is a UNESCO world heritage site. Recommended places include the Place Royale, the Petit-Champlain District, and the world-famous Château Frontenac, which is the most photographed hotel in the world.

Banff National Park

In the heart of the Rocky Mountains, Banff National Park comprises of stunning mountainous terrain, dense coniferous forest, alpine landscapes, lush lakes, and glaciers. There’s an abundance of highlights to keep you occupied and entertained, such as the deeply-blue-colored Lake Louise, the incredible Columbia Icefields, and the world-famous Banff hot springs. Wildlife lovers have the opportunity of seeing a wide variety of fauna. There are hundreds of bird species at Banff National Park, as well as mammals like the cougar, wolverine, grizzly bear, and the famous Canadian moose. The town of Banff itself is a charming town that you can use as a base to explore the region’s natural wonders.
