Unbelievable Sights Await Visitors In Canada
With more than 3.9 million square miles to explore, Canada is a vacation paradise for those who like major extremes. Visitors here can find themselves exploring uninhabited wilds one day and then living it up in major metropolitan cities the next. The country's incredible size, coupled with its unusual geographical features make it rank high on the lists of tourists who want to do a little bit of everything while seeing natural wonders along the way.
Canada is broken up into a number of provinces, which are like American states - only larger in most cases. While each province has its own distinct draws for tourists, some are more heavily trafficked than others. Popular destinations in Canada include:
- Quebec: This Canadian province is heavily influenced by the French culture, with many residents here speaking both French and English. Visitors here will find incredible sights, sounds and old world architecture. Some of the major stops within the province include Mount Royal Park, the Plains of Abraham and the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival & Museum. Old Port Montreal also holds beautiful sights for visitors to take in. The port's beauty is so legendary, it is has been used as the backdrop for several major movie productions.
- British Columbia: This west coast province is noted for its Carmanah Valley, which is loaded with thousand-year-old cedars, and its incredible Canadian Rocky Mountain Views. Home to the city of Vancouver, the region is noted for its many things to see and do. Some of the top stops include English Bay Beach, the Museum of Anthropology, Fort Rodd Hill and Fisgard Lighthouse and the many whale watching opportunities British Columbia affords.
- Ontario: With a mix of old world charm and modern marvels, Ontario is home to the capital city of Toronto. Within this province, visitors can see such sites as Niagara Falls, the Royal Ontario Museum, Marineland and more. The city of Toronto itself is loaded with historic sites and modern skyscrapers.

Considered one of the most beautiful provinces within the country, Nova Scotia also features many natural wonders to explore.
- Prince Edward Island: An isle on the east coast, this province is also considered quite a rugged stop. It features quaint fishing villages, historic sites and lots of beautiful terrain. The island is home to such stops as the Charlottetown waterfront, Founders' Hall, the Acadian Museum and Irish Hall.

Offering everything from mountain climbing, fishing and hunting, to historic sites, arts festivals and comedy on tap, Canada is a vast land just waiting for exploration. With most of it untouched by development, visitors here will find plenty of opportunities to see nature's finest without having to skimp on the wonders of big city life.
