A MUST visit if you’ve never been here. There is a special feeling when you are on Parliament Hill. A sense of pride, a sense of security. It is the dwelling place of the government of Canada; where all the most important decisions are made.

A must visit as well, and we highly recommend you visit at least once in your life if you have never visited.
3. Horseshoe Falls, Niagara Falls – Ontario
Truly, this majestic place is one of the natural wonders of the modern world. Every time we are at the Horseshoe Falls (Canadian Falls), I am inspired and filled with great appreciation for life and nature.

Witness nature in all her glory.
4. Bay of Fundy – New Brunswick
If you have ever wondered where the highest tides in the world are located, then look no further than the Bay of Fundy, located between the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
