The summer months are quickly approaching. Even though our economic world is at a low right now, traveling is not impossible especially with easy access to the internet and good deals that are available. Here is a list of some great traveling sites in Canada, the United States closest neighbor.
Travel agencies often offer great packages during the week and during holidays. I had friends that took a red eye bus trip to Niagara Falls and really enjoyed it. Niagara Falls is a great educational opportunity.
If sight seeing from a high point is exciting Niagara Falls can accommodate. According to www.niagarafallstourism.com, Shylon Tower gives an awesome view. The experience of the power of Niagara Falls from the ground is also available. The Maid of the Mist boat ride will bring its’ riders very close to the Falls. According to www.niagarafallstourism.com , jet ski rides near the Falls are also available.
The website www.niagarafallstourism.com/wheretostay, lists and rates hotels in the Niagara Falls area.
Walleye Fishing in Ontario
While in Ontario, Canada, there are some great opportunities to catch big walleye. According to www.walleyeheaven.com, Ontario’s lakes are great places to catch record sized walleye. The website Walleye Heaven lists great spots to fish for walleye.
If France is a part of family heritage, Quebec, Canada will feel like home. It is the leading French speaking city in Canada according to www.lonelyplanet.com.
Touring churches while in Quebec is an interest while on vacation, www.lonelyplanet.com, lists St. Jean Baptiste and Nore Dame as places to visit while in Quebec. The website www.lonelyplanet.com also states that the La Citadelle offers plenty of information for architects and historians. To learn more about tour opportunities in Quebec www.lonelyplanet.com/canada/quebeccity is a good site to explore.
This AC contributor would be amiss to not mention Toronto, Canada. Toronto offers great theater opportunities. I had family members that saw Phantom of the Opera there and loved it. According to the website about.com:CanadaTravel, some theaters in Toronto are: “St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts”; “Nort York Performing Arts Centre and “The Hummingbird Centre”. According to about.com:Canada Travel, theater performed shows in Canada are cheaper, but of the same quality as shows in New York City.
Toronto is also the home to professional sport teams:the Toronto Blue Jays; baseball, and the Toronto Mapleleafs, hockey.
