Don’t underestimate the appeal of Canadian cuisine. While many are quick to judge Canada as a place of natural beauty above all else, the quality and variety of food on offer is some of the best in the world.
Inspired by the numerous native and European cultures who settled the vast country, Canada’s multitude of eateries are famed the world over. While you can stop in many road-stops and in any city and find a restaurant to your taste, we would be remiss if we didn’t bring up food in Toronto.
The capital of Ontario is quickly becoming known as one of the best culinary destinations in the world. If you have the budget then make sure to treat yourself. If fancy dining isn’t a part of your road-trip itinerary then have no fear – Canadian local and even fast food has a huge amount on offer.
Not content to coast by on its natural beauty and food alone, Canada is home to many large cities and some of the world’s most famed and well-loved adventure and theme parks in the world. You can also take part in Canadian based activities like Multilotto Canada.
If water and slides are your thing, and the coast, lakes, and rivers prove too chilly, you can check out some of Canada’s water parks. If you are passing through Alberta, be sure to check out World Waterpark in Edmonton, which houses the world’s largest indoor wave pool and more than 17 unique waterslides and features.
Rollercoasters and adrenaline more your speed? Canada’s Wonderland, located just north of Toronto, features 70 different rides, including over a dozen roller coasters. For those who think themselves brave enough, they even offer Halloween Haunt’s attractions by night.
For Art and Architecture

For the Road
When it comes to road-trips, nothing can match the purity of a drive through the heart of some of the most naturally beautiful land on earth. It is the best form of adventure travel. Canada is crossed with thousands of roads which any road-tripper would be happy to take, though there are a few which really stand out.
