I have only been to:

British Columbia--Vancouver, Victoria, Whistler
Ontario--Toronto

We were going to go to Montreal next month...that's in Quebec? But not going to make it.

I would definitely like to see all the Canadian Provinces too!

I also realized how little I know about the Canadian Provinces...eeeeek! (Toronto is in Ontario, right?) crazy.gif

Ah! Montreal would've been AWESOME, we could've hung out again!

Yep, it's in Quebec, it's about 2 hours from my house.

Toronto certainly is in Ontario, it's the capital of the province, but not the country.

I beg to differ but Victoria is actually BC's capital city..... wink.gif Vancouver is the largest and most well known.

The only province I have missed is PEI....perhaps one day.....

Welcome to the forums, Diane!

Hmmm... well all of Canada is wonderful and all of it is very different. Go to BC and Alberta for mountains, Ontario for lakes and the Maritimes for beaches and the ocean.

Canada is unfortunately not a pedestrian friendly country in general, but there are lots of small parks within the cities that you might want to visit.

Algonquin Park is a great place to go if you like hiking, it's a giant park in the northern part of Ontario. Check it out, you'd probably really like it.

Canada is not pedestrian friendly because everyone drives a car! Therefore, the cities are designed with cars in mind, not people.

Vancouver: Have some REAL Chinese food in Chinatown

Edmonton: Green onion cakes at the Strathcona Market: http://www.travelpod.com/travel-blog-entri...29600/tpod.html

Quebec: Laurie Raphael if you like the upscale type places: http://www.travelpod.com/travel-blog-entri...27540/tpod.html

Toronto: I always get $2 bubble tea in Chinatown whenever I go. I've got lots of recommendations for events in Toronto. When are you going to be there?

Montreal: If you like beer, go to Dieu du Ciel. I also have lots of event ideas for Montreal, but I need to know when you are going.

ALSO!

Stop in Ottawa on your way between Toronto and Montreal and visit the TravelPod office!

I've been to a few Canadian Provinces:

British Columbia
Alberta
Saskachewan
Manitoba
Ontario
Quebec
New Brunswick
Nova Scotia
Prince Edward Island

Because of my family's business (and my mother not being able to fly), I have traveled across Canada by car 29 times! I'm flying from now on... haha...
