1. Vancouver

Planning a trip to Vancouver won’t let you down if you're looking for scenic beauty, a warm climate, a lively atmosphere, and plenty of fun things to do. The city is situated on the Pacific Ocean's shores, surrounded by snow-capped mountains, and is a year-round destination for outdoor enthusiasts.
Vancouver is included in the top of the "best places to live" lists every year. The laid-back, cocktail-loving metropolis is surrounded by natural splendour from sea to sky. There are mountains to ski just outside the city, beaches all around, and Stanley Park's dense rainforest just a few blocks from downtown's glass skyscrapers.
It also combines Hollywood glamour (shooting location of many movies) with an exuberant counterculture edge (including a famous nude beach) and vibrant multicultural communities.

2. Niagara Falls

On the border of Canada and the United States, Niagara Falls is a series of three awe-inspiring falls. Horseshoe Falls, located on the Ontario side of the falls, provides the best views and most activities. Most of the major tourist attractions, like observation towers and restaurants, are located near the Falls. There are also casinos and high-rise hotels in the area.
At night, fireworks light up Niagara Falls in Ontario's Queen Victoria Park, one of the best spots to see the falls from the city. Helicopter tours, jet boat tours, an observation deck next to Skylon Tower, and elevators that take you down behind the falls are all fun options for enjoying the falls from above or below.

3. Banff National Park

Banff National park should be on your bucket list if you're planning a trip to the Rocky Mountains and want to see some of Canada's most breathtaking scenery. This is unquestionably a tourist destination that attracts visitors from all over the world.
The turquoise lakes, including Lake Louise and Moraine Lake, set beneath glacier-capped mountains, are spectacular in the summer. The Icefields Parkway, which connects Jasper National Park with Banff National Park, is a wonderful way to take in the scenery. Hiking in Banff is a great way to get some fresh air and a little more adventure. Some of the park's most impressive sights can be found along these well-worn routes.

4. Montreal

Montreal is a one-of-a-kind destination with a magnificent historic district dating back to the 1600s and a modern city centre with vast underground shopping. You can lose yourself in the ancient streets lined with cobblestones and beautiful old buildings in Old Montreal. Some of the best parks and beaches can be found within a short distance of Montreal.
The historic streets of Montreal are also lined with boutiques and quaint hotels and restaurants, making it a popular destination for fashionistas. Quebec's largest city, Montreal, has its own distinct culture, but even if you don't speak French, you will be able to communicate with anyone in the tourism industry.

5. Whistler

The Whistler resort is the largest and most famous alpine ski destination in North America because of two spectacular mountains, Whistler and Blackcomb. It is nearly two hours drive from Vancouver to Whistler, situated in the Coast Mountains of British Columbia's west coast, via the Sea-to-Sky Highway. Whistler Village, Creekside, and Upper Village are cradled at the base of the two mountains. The Peak 2 Peak gondola lifts visitors from the villages to the hills.
Many world-class ski resorts are located in Whistler, and its mountain slopes offer breathtaking vistas that allure tourists to return again and again. In addition to skiing and snowboarding, the mountains offer numerous hiking and climbing options.

6. Toronto

Nearly a hundred different ethnic groups call Toronto home, making it one of the world's most ethnically diverse metropolises. It's among the few places in Canada where more than half of the population was not born here. However, Toronto's unique character is a result of its multiculturalism. It's not uncommon to see street signs written in various languages, and each neighbourhood has its own unique cuisine.
With soaring skyscrapers and countless multicultural restaurants, the inner city is a real cultural mecca. Once the world's tallest free-standing structure, the CN Tower is a popular tourist destination. Its observation deck, skypod, and 360 Restaurant offer a breathtaking view of the city. But the glass-enclosed elevator ride alone is worth the hype.

7. Ottawa

Canada's capital Ottawa boasts Parliament Hill and a stunning location along the Rideau Canal, in addition to some of the country's best national museums and historic sites. As it's a small city, Ottawa is easy to get around and interesting to explore.
The Tulip Festival in the spring and the always extravagant Canada Day Celebrations on July 1st take place during the summer, making it an ideal time to visit.
The canal is transformed into a 7.8-kilometre-long skating rink in the winter, and in February, the annual Winterlude celebrations entice huge crowds. Ottawa can be visited at any time of year, and it is easily accessible from Toronto via car or train in only a few hours.
