Canada: Highlights of East Coast Canada


Canada: Highlights of East Coast Canada

story by: Inspire Canada & Alaska

French-speaking Canadians, cobblestone streets, historic buildings, polar bears, beluga whales, dazzling Northern Lights and National and Provincial Parks are all part of the mix that makes the Eastern Provinces from Manitoba to Nova Scotia so rich in heritage, culture and diversity. Manitoba sits between the Western and Eastern provinces of Canada and boasts a haven for outdoor wilderness experiences and wildlife viewing, especially the polar bears of Churchill. The landscape goes from prairie grassland in the south and west, lakes and forests in the east and north to the arctic coastline in the extreme north. Bonjour Québec… not only will you see street signs in French and hear French speaking Canadians but cities that blend the old with the new. In Montréal, above ground enjoy Old Montréal with cobbled streets, outdoor cafés and even English pubs, then go underground and be amazed by the network of walkways connecting boutiques and businesses.
     Take the 10 minute ferry ride from downtown Toronto and escape the hustle and bustle to lakeside charm. Centre Island, also called Toronto Island, is a small, urban, car-free island community. It is a place for recreation, relaxation and features an amusement park, beaches, a yacht club and restaurants.
    A bright and airy shopping mall in the heart of Toronto’s downtown that houses more than 250 stores. More than just a place to shop, the four-level, glass domed Eaton Centre is of architectural interest and features a huge Canadian geese mobile –”Flight Stop”.
    Once a fortified city, today a vibrant community of hotels, restaurants, boutiques, rich in 17th and 18th century history and charm. Take time to explore the Point Calliere Museum and Notre Dame Basilica.
    The walled city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Wander the charming narrow cobbled streets, stop at the patisserie or chocolaterie and dine on French cuisine.
    Appreciate the power and roar of the Falls on the Maid of the Mist power boat. If you want to get right up close, take the Journey behind the Falls on a guided tour through a tunnel to a spot where you can hear and see lots of falling water.
