Starting in Ontario, the two major cities you’ll want to check out are Toronto (the urban hub) and Ottawa (the capital city). When you’re craving something a little different, head over to Eganville’s Bonnechere Caves and tour the limestone encased geological phenomenon. Or, make your way to Hamilton, a.k.a. the “Waterfall Capital of the World”, and home to almost 100 waterfalls.
In Quebec, you can go back in time and experience 400 years of Quebec City’s history and culture in Old Quebec. It won’t be hard to appreciate the charm of everything the city has to offer – from its cobblestone streets and architecture to the cuisine and St. Lawrence River. Over in Montreal, seek out Mount Royal – especially if you are in the need of some serious green space. At the foot of Mount Royal, the “tam tams” gather on Sunday mornings (weather permitting) and deliver a performance complete with drummers and dancers. When you make your way up the winding road to the top, take time to pause and appreciate the beautiful scenery Beaver Lake offers.
In Nova Scotia, leaving without experiencing the Cabot Trail on Cape Breton Island could be a mistake. The famous coastal highway snakes through gorgeous landscape and arguably even more gorgeous views of the Atlantic. While driving, you’ll wind through Cape Breton Highlands National Park, where you’ll be able to pull off the road to take those photos to post to Instagram and Facebook.
