Check Out These Things to Do in Canada 


Party 24/7 in Vancouver


Vancouver is one of Canada’s most vibrant cities. It offers a lively nightlife, with gigs, shows, tasting sessions, etc. virtually on daily basis. Over the weekend the number of events increases, especially in areas surrounding Gastown, Yaletown and Granville.


Don’t miss an evening at Roxy Cabaret, a Vancouver institution boasting a dance club and live entertainment. If you’re looking for a fashionable venue and hope to meet some celebrities, head to the Opus Bar. If playing games is what tickles your fancy, Parq Vancouver is the only downtown casino. If you’ve never stepped inside a real casino, you can try your hand at games such as poker, slot machines, roulette or blackjack online first. Online casinos usually offer popular payment methods including Skrill, PayPal, credit and debit cards. Lesser-known payment methods include InstaDebit, which has an excellent reputation. and is accepted at major iGaming sites such as LeoVegas, Spin Casino and PartyCasino.


Visit the Niagara Falls


Niagara Falls offers a breathtaking scene that is hard to forget. Located in the US/Canadian border, you will realize that the best scenes are from the Canadian side of the falls. They are just about an hour-and-a-half drive from Toronto in a route that is full of surprises. On your way to Niagara Falls, you will get a chance to sample local ‘icewine’ brewed from local vineyards. Once on location, you will be able to get close to the three large cascades of falls. Do not forget to carry your raincoat, although chances are you will still get drenched from the mighty showers.



Take the Titanic Trail in Halifax


While the ill-fated Titanic was last seen in Ireland, Halifax holds some of its deepest memories. While here, you can visit Fairview Lawn Cemetery and pay respect to those who perished on that fateful day. You can also go to the Maritime Museum and see some of the tear-jerking exhibits such as the Unknown Child’s Shoes. The Titanic Trail may awaken your emotions and give you even more reason to tour and enjoy life.


Be Sure to Find as a Good Place to Stay


For me, a big part of experiencing the culture of a city is finding the right place to stay. I never go for an average business hotel just because it’s budget friendly. I prefer to stay in nicer hotels which embody the charm of a city. But there is an alternative to that as well. You might find that staying in a condo in Toronto will give you more of a local feel, and that can be a really cool experience too. You never know, you might just want to move there!


Get ready to add these things to do in Canada to your bucket list. The Niagara Falls, the Halifax Titanic Trail and Vancouver vibrant nightlife are some of the things you cannot afford to miss. And no, you will not have to break a bank to visit Canada, as most of the services and goods are fairly priced. If you live in Canada, it is time to purposefully get out and enjoy the wonders of your country. The bucket is full.
