Hot Picks in Canada to let yourself loose this Summers
This life and our place are just wonderful – anyone can enjoy the charms of it at the fullest – all it takes is to take out some time from the day to day routine. You see, life can become a bit monotonous sometimes. Whether you are busy with your office shifts and household chores, it seems almost impossible to spare some time for yourself, but as we mentioned earlier, that’s all what it takes. So if you also feel and think things on these lines and have managed you some timeout, we would like to present some cool summer destinations in Canada that you must visit.
Whistler is located at the south-east of Canada and is know for exquisite mountain views and skiing. Whistler has one of the largest skiing resorts in North America. Have acrophobia (phobia of heights)? No worries, it also offers other tourist attractions like museums, cultural centres and beautiful lakes.
Don’t miss:- Alexander Falls, Whistler Blackcomb, Dog Sledding, Scandinave Spa
Cost- Whistler is costly and you can easily get charged 400-800 CAD only for accommodation. But by becoming a miser, you can easily find ways to save some bucks. For eg- plan your stay at Squamish BC, which is 58 km away from Whistler or by planning well in advance or in offseason.
2. Churchill, Manitoba
Known for polar bears and sea creatures, Churchill is located at the eastern side of Canada, on Manitoba province. Churchill is also called a polar bear capital of the world.

Cost:- The bad news is that, like Whistler, Churchill is also not a pocket-friendly place.
