Once again I am here to say, this summer you should be staying in Canada for your summer vacations. As you can easily see, we've been having some issues with our U.S neighbors down south, and just traveling across the border by car has become somewhat of an issue.
But fear not! Canada is full of amazing and globally renowned destinations for you to enjoy. Here are some of the top places that you can vacation to enjoy a little slice of what our vast and beautiful country has to offer.
1. Sauble Beach, Ontario
Why you should go: The more I read about this place, the more i'm convinced it's like the Southern California of Canada. Located on the laid-back shores of Lake Huron, this is the Canadian destination for those who are looking for a lazy beach vacation without having to travel down south. The waters of Lake Huron are known for being calm and warm, and the distinct party vibe here is also known to attract flocks of city dwellers who are looking for a good time.
2. Bay of Fundy, New Brunswick
Why you should go: Hopewell Rocks and the Bay of Fundy are known around the world because of the extreme high and low tides in the area.

3. Jasper National Park, Alberta
Why you should go: This spot isn't just a national park, it's a national treasure.

And the surrounding towns will give you a true taste of the rich culture of this province. This is a destination for curious people who love to roam the countryside.
5. Quebec City, Quebec
Why you should go: Very few places in Canada are as beautiful and charming as Quebec City. The "old city" of Quebec is especially oozing with charm and lovely views of the water.
