Canada has been called the "Great White North" due to its cold and snowy winters. It is a huge country (second only to Russia), which covers much of the northern part of North America. Most of the people live along the southern tier of the country, within 100 miles (160 kilometers) of the American border, leaving the rest of the country sparsely populated.

I have only visited Toronto and Ottawa in Ontario, and Montreal in Quebec, but there is so much more to see, such as Canada's other large cities of Vancouver and Calgary; the rocky coasts of the Maritime Provinces; the Canadian Rockies; the arctic tundra of the far north; the vast forests and plains; and the temperate rain forests of the Pacific coast. I hope to return to Canada someday in order to experience some more of this beautiful country.

    I once took a beautiful train trip from Vancouver to Winnipeg. Also I have been canoeing in the Quetico (western Ontario) and have been to Toronto a few times. But there is still so much of Canada I haven’t seen!

    Hi Dave,
    you picked out some pretty good highlights..for me personally it would be the Canadian rockies and the wide open feeling you get in the countryside.

    Such a comprehensive presentation that is honest and fact-filled. I think that only the tacky tourist shops are real traps. The natural beauty of the falls is a must see. Love your emphasis on architecture in the three large cities.

    Wonderful overview of our wonderful country Dave. I love how you put Windsor in the "off the beaten path" category. Some do say that Canada ends in Windsor, Ontario. The Casino as our main attraction???

    An enjoyable page on Canada, Dave. Somehow I don't think that CN tower is for me!

    Ah hah! You fell into the tourist traps. I'm working very hard on a guide to show people the true beauty of the area by avoiding the tourist traps. Best of all...most of the activities I list are FREE. www.budgetniagara.com
