    There's nothing like seeing something in person that you have always read and heard about.

From the US, the Canadian side, from above the falls, and below them, the opportunities to be amazed by the sheer power of water and ...

    Notre-Dame Basilica

    A must for anyone visiting Montreal! Literally took my breath away, the details and statues of the cathedral and chapel were exquisite. The plaza in front if the basilica is quite entertaining as well. The history behind the place is so intriguing I couldn't help but question my faith while there haha! It is just beautiful.

    Gastown Steam Clock

    34 reviews

    A thing you can't miss in Gastown, Vancouver. Pretty easy to find, because there is always a little crown around it. Makes it hard to take a pic without other people on it. The Clock announces the quarter hours with a whistle chime that plays the Westminster Quarters. A great fun for all tourists. Well worth a selfie in front ...

    Granville Island

    74 reviews

    Because this was the "tourist" spot to go to, my parents wanted to check this place out during our visit to Vancouver. It definitely was a very pretty and pleasing to the eye place to visit, especially going under that big archway that says "Granville Island." There are a lot of parking spots, but it seems like this place is ...

    Maid of the Mist

    93 reviews

    An amazing experience to get up close with the Falls from a view you can obviously see from no where else but right at the base! Luckily, we had the choice of being the last ones on the boat before ours or the first ones on the next boat - we elected the next boat. As the first ones on ...

    Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge

    13 reviews

    This is a great place. Capilano suspension bridge is a bit steep with the pricing - around $35 a pop. This is a much better value. We were in Vancouver last week our host suggested this as an alternative to Capilano and we're glad we went there. The hike in the Lynn Canyon Park is great. It is just so ...

    Icefields Pkwy

    15 reviews

    The drive is about three hours without stopping, but not stopping is impossible! I loved the drive from Banff to Jasper more than the opposite direction as the sights seemed to build in height and grandness as we moved up the Parkway. The first two stops right out of Banff are gorgeous,reflective lakes that make excellent photo ops but are ...
