No list of unique Canadian destinations would be complete without Niagara Falls. It’s one of the world’s most iconic and recognizable natural features, and even more spectacular when you see it for real.

The awe-inspiring waterfall is like nothing you’ve ever seen before and will be the highlight of your trip, but many people don’t realize there is more to do in the surrounding area.

If you’re feeling lucky, you can visit the local casino resort, or if you’re not the gambling type, you should head over to Marineland instead.

It’s a great amusement park and aquarium with loads of great rollercoasters and marine life, with plenty of shows to see.

Castle Hill National Historic Site

If you’re a history buff and want to delve into the rich history of this great country, the Castle Hill National Historic Site in Newfoundland is one of the best places to start.

The Greenwood Inn & Suites Corner Brook is well situated, so it’s easy to reach the Castle Hill site. So, if you’re coming primarily to see that, it’s an excellent place to stay.

The Castle Hill National Historic Site was the location for a battle against the British and French for control over this fishing location. It’s an essential chapter in the history of Canada and North America so it’s a must see for anybody interested in history.

Whistler

A lot of people instantly think of skiing when they think of Canada. If that’s you and you’re looking to hit the slopes during your visit, Whistler is the best place.

This fabulous resort in British Columbia is one of the biggest in North America, where you can ski, toboggan or even jump on a snowmobile. It’s not all about the snow, though; there are some great museums and art galleries you can visit and some incredible restaurants to eat at in the evenings.
