Canada: From Sea to Sea


 

Why should I visit Canada?

I may be a biased person on this topic but Canada is absolutely amazing. You can get the hustle and bustle of big cities while at the same time being able to experience small town charm and country life. With the amazing color's of fall, the cold of winter, warm summers and blooming spring's all seasons are well worth a visit.

To make the most of your visit to Canada make sure to take the time before leaving to see if there are any festivals or activities happening during your visit. That is the best way to experience Canadian hospitality at it's finest. Make sure that you have a mix of both small towns and cities as you can never experience true small town life without staying in a small town.

There all small towns all across Canada, here are the top 12:

  1. Nelson, BC (pictured)

  2. Legal, AB

  3. Forget, SK

  4. Flin Flon, MB

  5. Port Hope, ON

  6. Hudson, QC

  7. Victoria-by-the-Sea, PEI

  8. Mahone Bay, NS

  9. Trinity, NL

  10. Dawson, YK

  11. Rankin Inlet, NU

  12. Fort Smith, NT

While you may be thinking I made up those names let me assure you those are not made up they are actual names of towns.

I hope this has helped with questions on Canada. I will be doing the provinces separate and they will be up soon. Anything else you want or need to know you are always free to contact me.

See you next time :)
