The Three Best Places to Visit in Canada.

The country of maple syrup, mooses, breathtaking mountains, and never-ending cold weather. This is the place to be when you want to experience something different from your usual theme parked beaches and such. 

The country of Canada is a huge landmass that is actually much bigger than the states themselves. But this makes it pretty hard to pinpoint where the best places to actually go to. Especially with so many things and so much to experience, you can barely fit it all in just a few weeks of a stay! 

So that’s why we’re here to tell you all about the three best places to visit in Canada. And without further ado, let’s get started! 

Calgary. 

The city of Calgary is considered to be one of, if not, the biggest metropolitan cities out there in Canada. This makes it a staple to go-to thanks to so many things you can actually do in this grand city. 

Thanks to its very recent boom, the city of Calgary has now become a busy, hustle and bustle one that has tons of people visiting! And with so many attractions from skyscrapers, all the way to world-class zoo’s, there’s a little bit of everything for everybody here! 

The city also plays host to several festivities of music, film, dance, and the most famous Calgary stampede where you’re taken back to the old western days. So there’s more than enough for the average traveler to enjoy here! 

Ottawa. 

Once known as just a lumber town, the capital city of Ottawa remains to be a part of the top places to see and visit in Canada. And it’s definitely more than just your typical lumber town now. 

Although the city isn’t the cultural capital of the country, it still holds many museums, well-preserved palaces, and historic monuments for all to see and experience. And you can visit them all with just a bike as well. It’s practically the best mode of transportation in the area, so make sure to get your legs ready for some peddling. 

But if you want to do more than just learn about the country’s history, then you can check out the Byward market, which has everything you need and so much more! 

Niagra Falls, Ontario. 

We’ve all heard of the Niagra falls at least one point in our life. Well, when you visit Canada, you can definitely experience it in all its beauty and glory. 

Though it does have a sister city in New York, on Ontario’s side, you can have a better look at the breathtaking waterfalls. With multiple viewing decks from multiple parks such as the Queen Victoria Park, which actually has the best view out there. 

Viewing Niagra Falls is a must for all those that are wanting to visit Canada. So make sure you drop by when you can! 

Conclusion. 

Canada has more to offer you than just maple syrups, and amazing mountains. Here, the people are quite possibly, the nicest ones you will ever meet. So besides visiting the hustling and bustling streets of Calgary, checking out the historical palaces of Ottawa, or viewing Niagra Falls, Canadians will be the most hospitable and welcoming people you will ever meet. And that is more than enough reason to visit this great and often snowy land. …

Top 3 Cities to Visit in California

California is a gigantic state with everything from rolling hills to showbiz lights. There’s no shortage of things to do and see, and one can drown in the sheer opportunities for fun! Below is a quick guide to a few of California’s funniest cities. 

1. Hollywood 

Known around the world, Hollywood continues to be an epicenter for entertainment, innovation, and street performers in scarily-accurate costumes. Walk down Hollywood Boulevard, stand at the corner of Hollywood & Vine, and if you’re lucky, you might just get an audition. 

Best Thing to Do: See The Hollywood Sign 

It’s a rite of tourist passage. If you didn’t see the Hollywood Sign in Hollywood, were you really in Hollywood? 

2. San Diego 

The city of San Diego boasts unparalleled beauty and weather. Just a bit north of the Mexican border, San Diego is an oceanside haven for vacationers and locals alike. Check out one of several incredible art museums, or head down to the water to see the USS Midway, an actual ship decommissioned and turned into a public museum. Best Thing To Do: San Diego Zoo 

I know what you’re thinking: a zoo is just a zoo! But SDZ is a little bit different. They showcase over 3,000 animals at a time, evening out to 650 different species. That’s more diverse than my local zoo, at least. 

3. Sacramento 

While people don’t immediately think of Sacramento when they think of California, it’s actually the state capitol and is rich in history and tradition. Catch a Kings game, or head down to the Waterfront District, aka Old Sac, for a taste of true local life in the state capitol. It may not be LA, but it’s a truly special town. 

Best Thing to Do: California State Railroad Museum 

While it might sound a little too-educational-for-fun, the Railroad Museum highlights a couple of the more dangerous and fascinating parts of California’s history: The Gold Rush and the Transcontinental Railroad.

Conclusion 

There’s no shortage of big cities or fun things to do in California. You could visit for a whole month and not even get out of the lower half of the state. There’s history, lights, and if you go a few miles out of town you can even find lush hills and beautiful off-the-beaten-path trails. There’s not a lot of singular states that can offer so many different things all at one time. Just be sure to make time for some rest in between all the activities!…
