The nature in this country is probably the #1 reason Canada beats out almost all other countries. If you go up north you'll find giant glaciers, mountains and polar bears. If you go out east you'll find coast lines like you've never see before. If you go out west you'll find beautiful beaches, stunning lakes and breathtaking national parks.

Distance From Montreal: 7 hours

Muskoka is one of my favourite places to escape in the summertime. It's home to tons of big lakes and small lakes, with quaint towns in between. There's a reason there's a chair named after this place, the Muskoka chairs, because you'll be so relaxed here you won't want to leave.

Rent a cottage with your friends and spend your weekend canoeing, boating, roasting marshmallows on the campfire and swimming the days away!

2. Quebec City

Being from Montreal, you've probably already been to Quebec City. But if you haven't it's definitely something everyone should experience at least once. It's colonial core is what attracts most people to this city. With cobble stone streets, the towering Chateau Frontenac Hotel, and cathedrals to explore this is the perfect destination for a quick 5-day trip.

Distance From Montreal: 5 hours 25 mins

Chances are you've already been to Toronto, but it still deserves a spot on this list because it's Canada's largest, most bustling city. If you've already been you probably didn't get to see all the things you set out to because this city is just so large and expansive. But you should definitely go back and make a list because even with 5 whole days you'll feel crunched for time!

Niagra Falls is one of the seven natural wonders of the world and it's pretty obvious why. These are the largest waterfalls you'll ever see and they're right here in our own country! Ride the maid of the mist to get the full experience, or hop over to the American side to see it from a new angle. Either way you'll love this quick vacation.
