Canada Placeholder

Americans travel to Europe, sometimes forgetting Canada is right next door. Those who want the beauty of the Alps might save a pretty penny or two by visiting the Canadian Rockies. Those looking to enjoy themselves in Paris might find it mistakable after a great meal in Canada's French-speaking mecca Montreal.

Canada is beautiful. The people are incredibly nice. The food is excellent. The drinks are strong. What else do you want?











Banff National Park

Niagara Falls
