- Niagara-on-the-Lake is located in Ontario and is a very proud wine region. The town is filled with wineries, most of which open their doors to tourists who would like to know more about wine-making.

- Niagara-on-the-Lake is best known for the Shaw Festival, a yearly Canadian theater event celebrated in honor of George Bernard Shaw.
- Churchill in Manitoba is popular for its subarctic terrain and is a great place to be in to see polar bears. If you want to see these wild animals in their habitat, you should visit the town between the months of October and November. They usually head to Hudson Bay in preparation for winter, when they prey on seals.
- Churchill is also a great place to watch beluga whales, which usually appear during the summer.
- This is another beautiful place in Canada found in the province of Quebec. It is spectacularly situated above Cape Diamond, the stunning body of water surrounding the city.
- Quebec City is North America’s oldest walled city. Add to this, it is a part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site list, thanks to the city’s great similarity with an old-fashioned French town, from the cobblestone pathways to cafés and old cathedrals.
- The Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac is also located in the city. This iconic structure is considered as one of the most photographed buildings in North America.
- Although Quebec City is highlighted by its traditional style, it is still bustling with modern restaurants and nightlife.
