Next up, head on to the French-speaking province of Quebec; home to the stunning city of Montreal. This city brings a mix of 17th-century architecture mixed with European-styled streets and skyscrapers. It is a truly beautiful sight of the best of two worlds.
Montreal brings an astonishing selection of world-class museums, marketplaces, and vibrant nightlife. While you’re there, visiting the streets of Old Montreal for a collection of ancient cathedrals and marketplaces that tell a tale of history and culture. You’ll be able to dine in French-style cafes and lounges as you gaze into the local lifestyle of the people strolling down the streets. After, head on to The Boulevard of Saint-Laurent, a bustling street filled with shops and dining venues to keep you busy and entertained all day long.
Furthermore, head on to Mount Royal Park for the best views of the city as you lounge under the sun for a picnic or an afternoon stroll. Also, hiking is also a popular activity in the park for travelers looking for some active outdoor activities.
To conclude, visit the streets of Rue St-Denis, known for a vibrant night scene. Rue St-Denis offers hundreds of entertainment venues including lounges, nightclubs, restaurants, after-hour clubs, and much more!
Vancouver, British Columbia
Finally, explore a city that is a haven of both urban and natural beauty, Vancouver. Located in the West of Canada in the province of British Columbia, it stuns with views of mountains and sea. You might recognize the backdrop of this magnificent city in many motion pictures and television shows; it was even nicknamed “Hollywood North”.
During your stay, journey into an adrenaline-filled day in the Capilano Suspension Bridge, Vancouver’s first touristic attraction from 1889. The bridge stands over a 70-meter-deep river and is surrounded by forest trails and ancient trees that will leave you breathless. Other adventurous areas in the city include Grouse Mountain, Stanley Park, and Queen Elizabeth Park.
On the other hand, you can explore an array of leisurely experiences within the city. We recommend you visit Grenville Island and revel in a thriving scene of art, food, and music. In addition, if you seek some leisure and shopping, head on to Robson Street to enjoy over 150 shops and restaurants.
Vancouver is truly an urban haven that is relatively young. However, it compensates its short-term history with some of the most beautiful sights in the world. The city is visited by millions of travelers throughout the year.
