Canada is a country of contrasts as some areas are mainly cities while there are also vast expanses of woodland and open space. There are ten provinces and three territories. The country stretches from the Atlantic Ocean in the east and reaches the Pacific in the west while to the north is the Arctic Ocean. It has the longest common border with another country being attached to the United States and is the second largest country in the world.
France and Britain have both had colonies in Canada since the 1500ís although after the Seven Years War in 1763 France gave up its colony. The British Monarch is still the head of state and both French and English are spoken there as both nations settled and it was only the Canada Act of 1982 that finally took away their legal dependence from Britain.
Depending on the location there is plenty to do in Canada. In Toronto there is the CN Tower one of the 7 wonders of the modern world while just north is the Algonquin Provincial Park which is a true Canadian wilderness. The Canadian Rockies houses Banff National Park and has a ski resort while Vancouverís Stanley Park has a cycle route and rollerblading section, childrenís farmyard and Theatre under the Stars. Niagara Falls is becoming more and more popular and is even now chosen as a place to get married. Whatever interests you have, there should be somewhere in Canada that will provide the sort of entertainment you want and very often there will be a festival to celebrate it!
While it will clearly be easier and quicker to travel across Canada by train or by taking flights, it will be helpful to have a car when touring the cities and travelling a little outside them. Avis and Budget have a site in most major cities but to make sure you get the car of your choice and in order to have everything arranged before you arrive a visit to the online site www.anycarhire.com is a good idea. For those with plenty of time just travelling across Canada will be a holiday you never forget.
