Out of the blue, my mother informed me that during this summer, we might be going to Canadia. Erm, Canada. Whichever. Which is kind of cool, since I've never been off of the East Coast, much less out of the country - although Canada might not exactly be a foreign land of mystery and exoticness, I'll take what I can get.<P>So, then - since this trip appears to not be planned much, I'd like to spring the germ of one upon my parents and appear knowledgable. What region of the Large Blob Somewhere to the North of my own country would be most, well, interesting to visit?<P>------------------

'Most Interesting'... Hmm.. That's a toughie... Quebec City is nice... How long are you up for? That would give us a better idea of where to suggest you go (and how many places <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/biggrin.gif">)

TORONTO! <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/biggrin.gif"> <P>Heh, also, I have visited Vancouver and Victoria in British Columbia. VERY beautiful place, and lots of sites. In one of my old threads in this forum, I describe the several places to see, esp. in Victoria, the capital. <p>[This message has been edited by Ucchan (edited 05-09-2001).]

I don't know how long it'll be; most of my family's trips have been either 4 days or a week, but since this is extranational, who knows?<P>Also, I've decided to try to steer clear of Quebec at all costs. See, my mother remembers a bit of her High School French... but she has a much higher opinion of that ability than she should, if you catch my drift. Her being in an area where she has an excuse to try to speak French would result in her spouting off a language she by all that is holy should <i>not</i> be spouting, embarrassing me enormously.<P>------------------

Everybody loves MarineLand! <P>(j/k)<P>Most of Canada is enjoyable, but I don't know of any extraordinary must-see places there. Niagara Falls and the CN Tower come to mind, but both get boring after about half an hour. <P>The best thing Canada has going for it isn't its places, but its females. I typically visit Canada about twice a year, and I have <I>never</I> seen an ugly girl there.

Boy, I can't believe I'm actually recommending this...<P>If you're in Canada for the first weekend in August you should head to North Bay. IT's got the heritage festival (which for the past few years has sucked). This year however, there is going to be concerts by Treble Charge and Great Big Sea that you get into when you by you 15 dollar admission for the weekend.<P>Any other time, stay away from North Bay.<P>------------------

Ottawa's a really nice city, and it's got plenty of "learn about Canada" types of museums and whatnot... and you might get a kick out of visiting the American Embassy, too. The thing's a leeging fortress... Another plus side is that there's enough French there for your mom to understand conversations, but everyone speaks English very nicely.<P>But that's a bit on the educational side. Here's another thought: Banff, Alberta, in the middle of the Rocky Mountains. Some of the most gorgeous scenery I've ever seen. Close your eyes, point your camera in a random direction, and you'll still take a picture worth framing. It's quite a tourist trap nowadays, but that's not always a bad thing -- you could easily spend a week there without running out of things to do.<P>And, of course, Saskatchewan. As different as you can get from metropolitan Eastern US. Not that much to recommend it, but since I live and really like it, I'm obligated by civic pride to provide some <A HREF="http://www.sasktourism.com" TARGET=_blank>Tourism Information</A>.<P>There is one thing about Saskatchewan worth noting: We're home to one of the most poorly-named Bed and Breakfast's in the world. Don't believe me?

Yeah... More like a suspiciously water-like acid...<P>I find Halifax to be a nice city, but we are still way out in the middle of nowhere. Personally, I'd prefer to live somewhere more central. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/tongue.gif">

I know it is a little far but Whistler is really nice in the summer, lots of stuff to see, lakes to swim in and there are no where near as many tourists as in the winter. and if you get bored you can just head on over to Vancouver.<P>Or you can go to Victoria and visit me...<P>please.. im alone.. and cold.. and there are wolves after me....<P>------------------
