Planning to Visit Canada this Season? Here is a Compilation of the Best Places to Visit on Canada Day
Every year on July 1st, Canadians beam with pride and patriotism as they celebrate the birth of their nation.

Here are the best places to visit in Canada Day to belt out O Canada and wave maple leaf flags in honor of the Great White North.
Enjoy hours of cultural entertainment, food and fun
Too often at this time of year we forget the Canadians. While on the Fourth of July Americans are busy at barbecues, parades and concerts, lighting fireworks late into the night, and generating lots of noise about declaring their independence from the British in 1776, many forget that just a few days before, Canadians are celebrating the birth of their country, too. (What’s a Canuck got to do to get a little attention, eh?)
So we decided to do a little bit of research on this important holiday, and find out what it’s all about!
It seems like the whole world watched Prince William marry his commoner bride (and media darling) Kate Middleton, and the biggest news right now is their upcoming tour of Canada, a country perhaps best known for exports like maple syrup, hockey, and international teen sensation and hair trendsetter Justin Bieber. Responding to an invitation by the government of Canada, the royal couple will be conducting an official tour of Canada from June 30 to July 8, attending myriad festivities and giving royal addresses in this, Kate’s first official trip as a Princess.
