Best Places to Visit in Canada for 2017 + Happy Canada Day!

Friday, June 30, 2017

Canada is celebrating 150 years! Don’t miss the opportunity to join ton of Canada 150 celebrations happening across the country. Yes the economy is in a downturn; The currency exchange suck; Zika virus is on everyone’s radar and our money is worth a little lot less when traveling outside of Canada. Due to all these things that happened in 2016, there’s are many reasons why Canadians will be eager to see this country;  we came up with a list of Canadian places to visit in 2017. (No pesky exchange here!) Happy 150 Canada!
Whistler, British Columbia
Located in the Coast Mountains of British Columbia just two hours north of Vancouver, Whistler is not only a hot spot during winter but year round. You can sky and snowboard during winter and than golf, go rafting and hike all summer long. If you are not scared of heights I would add the gondola ride to the itinerary.

Cape Breton, Nova Scotia
Cape Breton is a mystical, magical place of stunning panoramic vistas, spectacular coastlines and forests, and jaw-droppingly beautiful scenery. It is a beautiful island with amazing trails, whale watching. Middle Head Trail and any of their water tours are on my to do list.
Edmonton, Alberta
Edmonton is home for me. I wrote a travel review guide before listing many reasons of you should visit #YEG but more endless events and growing music scene are just another reason to visit Edmonton. Points of interest: West EdmontonMall, Muttart Conservatory, Alberta Art Gallery, Fort Edmonton Park.

Canmore, Alberta
Canmore is about 40 minutes away from Banff. Its a beautiful small town with one of the best restaurant I have been too. Great for hikes, camping, horse back riding... the list of adventures goes on.

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia
The Okanagan Valley is in south-central British Columbia, extending about 200 km north from the American border. Its home to a beautiful lake, numerous wineries and amazing trails. I would definitely put the Myra Canyon Park on the list of places to visit.

Quebec City, Quebec
Québec City sits on the Saint Lawrence River in predominantly French-speaking Québec province. The beautiful architecture, quaint cafés and many places to explore is why we are recommending Quebec. I would check out Old Quebec and Montmorency Falls Park .

Saskatoon, Saskatchewan
Saskatoon is a city in central Saskatchewan, Canada, on the South Saskatchewan River. Its is home to many parks and family friendly activities. I would add LB Distillers and Mendel Art Gallery and Civic Conservatory  to your itinerary if you are visiting Sask.

What do you guys think? What places in Canada are on your list?

From all of us at Letters to LA LA Land,
we wish you a safe and Happy Canada Day!
