So we've already discussed a few of the best places to visit in Canada last week. But we're not finished yet, lets talk about Canada a little longer.  

(Missed Part One? Read it here!)

It is almost impossible to see all of the best places to visit in Canada in one trip. From the east to the west coast, Canada has so much to offer. Below are some more places you may want to add to your itinerary when planning a trip to Canada. 

Located on the West Coast of Canada, Vancouver offers the perfect mix of the beauty of the Pacific Ocean and the Coast Mountains. Not only is it famous for its natural beauty, the city of Vancouver is also the third largest metropolitan area in Canada. From culturally diverse neighborhoods to parks in the city, you will enjoy the perfect blend of nature and city. Consider going during one of the annual city’s festivals, including Chinese New Year or the International Film Festival. 

Prince Edward Island
Prince Edward Island, also known as Pei, boasts of its natural beauty. Here you will find farmhouses and seaside villages scattered around the coast. It is the perfect place to visit in Canada to get out of the city into a relaxed environment. Prince Edward Island is famous for being the backdrop to the book series of Anne of Green Gables, and you may just find yourself feeling as if you have stepped into the storybook. 

Churchill, Manitoba
Churchill, Manitoba is a subarctic town, and you may just spot a few polar bears on your visit here. It is a bit out of the way, so you will have to arrive either by train or plane. However, the natural sights are well worth it. It is known as the polar bear capital of the world, and every year thousands of them migrate to Churchill. 

During the summer, you will be able to spot the migrating beluga whales as well. The town is set on the west shore of the Hudson Bay and offers accommodations and restaurants. 

Quebec City
Quebec City is located in Quebec province of eastern Canada, and is on a hill that overlooks the St. Lawrence River. The city has a large historical district, and here you will be able to see the original walls. The city boasts of its French influences, and here you will hear French being spoken on the streets. From art galleries, museums to parks, you can spend days in Quebec City and still not be able to see it all. 

The city also is famous for its impressive accommodations. You will not want to miss the Chateau Frontenac, the most photographed hotel in North America. You do not need to stay there to take a tour of the inside features. You can also visit the Ice Hotel, which displays marvelous ice sculptures in their rooms. 

If you are adventurous enough to make your way up to Whitehorse in the northern territory of Yukon, you may be able to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights. The best time to visit this amazing phenomenon is from September to April, however, even if you do not visit at the right time to see the Northern Lights, Whitehorse still has much to offer. It is known as Canada’s Wilderness City, and here you can experience natural trails, rivers, lakes, and mountains. 

Combining Canada’s natural beauty with its impressive cities, no matter where you choose, you will have a trip of your lifetime in this beautiful country.
