Canada Day Trip

The country of Canada is immense, and as such there are almost an unlimited number of options for Canada day trips. Canada tours and Canada trips can include everything from time spent in the Canadian Rockies to a day in historical Victoria. A collection of some of the most popular Canada day trips can be a useful source when deciding how to begin your vacation in Canada.


Vancouver is the largest city in western Canada and enjoys proximity to many interesting attractions. When planning Canada day trips in Vancouver, be sure to make time to take a walk through Stanley Park. This popular park is actually located downtown in the city center district and is one of the major attractions in Vancouver. After spending the first half of your day trip in Canada at the park and strolling through the downtown area, head over to the Gastown neighborhood. In Gastown, tourists will find the only active steam clock in the world, as well as many shops and restaurants which focus on serving tourists. Be sure to leave time in your Vancouver day trip in Canada for visiting Granville Island, located just south of the downtown area.


Taking Canada tours of Toronto is an excellent way to become familiar with the urban side of Canada. Start at the CN Tower, where you can catch a view of the expanse of city below. Next, head to the Toronto Music Garden located right on the water. Canada trips along the waterfront can also include some time spent at the Harbourfront Centre, followed by a trip to the Hockey Hall of Fame. In the late afternoon you can tour the Old City Hall, New City Hall, and finish the day with a walk down Canada’s Walk of Fame.


Canada tours and Canada trips through Quebec can last much longer than a day. A day trip in Canada through Montreal is an excellent way to begin. Start in Vieux-Montreal, the old center of downtown. From here, you can easily walk to the Basilique Notre-Dame, and the Pointe-a-Calliere. Next, head toward the Musee McCord d’ Histoire and the Musee des Beaux-Arts, two museums with a range of historical artifacts and fine art. In the downtown area, spend time shopping and possibly eating in one of the excellent downtown restaurants.


Particularly in the winter, the chance to tour Canada and see Whistler is a treat. Considered by many to be one of the best places to ski and snowboard in western Canada, Whistler is a major attraction. Located about 2 hours north of Vancouver, the small resort town of Whistler can be enjoyed in a number of ways. Shopping, dining and other winter sports are all located right in the village.
