top canadian places to visit July 08, 2006 1:25 PM

What are some of the best places to visit in Canada?

I must say i am not much for American-style cities, but Toronto is a must because of its metropolitan look and is often the only place you can go for some jobs or careers simply because it has such a great population base.  And it is nice by the waterfront.

Another place that is great to visit is Montreal where it is said it is the closest you can be to Europe without being in Europe.  i beg to differ and say that Quebec City is the closest.

St. John's NFLD. is a painting that has lasted for a very long time.  Just hearing whales while you're walking down the street is a feeling that cannot be described.

What places do you guys recommend?

Few cities in the world surpass the beauty of Vancouver - mountains and skiing/hiking/mountain biking, ocean and sailing, Stanley Park, the sea wall, beaches right downtown; english bay, kits, locarno, spanish banks, wreck and others, and my favourite hole-in-the-wall sushi and sashimi restaurants where you can get lunch with tea, miso, and 3 sushi rolls for under $8

And then there is wreck beach. The University of BC with 40,000 or so students is at the top of the escarpment. Human anatomy is a field class at this university.

I totally agree with you... I go in Haute-Ville in the Old Quebec so very often and gee, it is sooo European, so frenchy! to not say fancy...

That is cheap sushi.  Is it as good as the more expensive stuff?  Or is sushi just cheap there?  [ send green star]

These places sound and look beautiful.  What about less populated areas?  [report anonymous abuse]

Che, from experience, Sushi in Vancouver can not be compared to Montreal's sushi... It is just melting in your mouth, just succulent, delicious.

Vancouver is definitely THE place to go in Canada for Sushi...

And I am saying that as a sushi extreem lover...

Che, I think that Sushi in Montreal is expensive... In Vancouver, it is only one of the, (if not THE) most popular food around...

I can't talk about sushi anymore, I am drooling just thinking about it...

When I lived in Kaaawa, HI, there was a 7-11 that sold sushi like jerky.  I used to eat there and at the wagon down the street that sold mahi mahi sandwiches.  I miss the diverse food AND people from that area.  [report anonymous abuse]

Little Italy, Danforth Rd. Toronto, Ont. There really is no stroll like it. The greek pastries, the street vendors, although I could've lived without the lambs hanging in their windows!!! Yuk!! Beautiful people!! peace out from Lyn  (kinda makes a girl homesick)  [report anonymous abuse]

I meant less populated area in my post with the picture of the midnight sun.

To me, the Yukon is a beauty to tame...

Perhaps only the ones with a sense for adventures will find a thrill at taming the wild(s)

Wilderness is the norm here...

Even the sun goes wild....

Crocus those pictures are absolutely beautiful...thank you!

I agree with the posts above, about Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto, but I think there are some other really fantastic places. For example:
