Here Are Some Gems Found Only In The Best Cities in Canada

Here Are Some Gems Found Only In The Best Cities in Canada

Here at One World 365, we love covering the wonderful, diverse landscape that is the great Canadian outdoors, but today we thought we’d take some time to truly appreciate the magnificent cities that lie within Canada. From French cathedrals to American-inspired skyscrapers, Canada’s cities have it all so here are the best cities to visit as well as some hidden gems that you can visit. 


1. Montreal

As the second largest city in Canada and home to all things French, Montreal is a chic paradise unlike anywhere else on Earth. The mother tongue of Montreal is French as over half of the population speak it, and so it is no surprise that the city is so cool, creative and above all cultured. There is the Notre-Dame Basilica to visit, the Mont Royal, the Botanical Gardens and several museums packed with fine art and history.

Montreal is also home to one of the largest casinos in all of Canada – the Casino de Montreal, a five-floor gaming behemoth, which sits on the Ile Notre-Dame opposite the Old Port. Of course, if you’re going to be visiting such a place we recommend you get some practise online first, so review this list to make sure you’re at the top of your game when you visit Montreal.


2. Vancouver


Considering the fact that Vancouver has been crowned the best place to live in North America on more than one occasion, how could we possibly leave it out of the list? Situated on the west coast of British Columbia, Vancouver has a rich cultural atmosphere, a plethora of restaurants and several neighbourhoods each with their own individual flare.

If you would like to connect with the great outdoors whilst visiting Vancouver you can head to Crab Park - a hidden gem that has occasionally been referred to as the Riviera of the downtown east side.

Not only can you relax by the lake or have a picnic, if you have a dog the park has a huge off-leash area where they can run free. Of course, make sure your dog is well behaved and pick up after them otherwise this secret haven may swiftly turn into a nightmare. 


3. Toronto

CN Tower Toronto

As the largest and, arguably, best-known city in all of Canada, Toronto absolutely deserves the top spot on our list. Many visitors have compared Toronto to New York as it is home to numerous skyscrapers, Yorkville where you can shop to your heart’s content and even unique, hipster areas in Queen Street West.

Plus, if visiting the CN Tower – the world’s tallest building at 1,815 feet – and other more modern ventures aren't really your style, you can visit Monkey Paw. This old bookstore is home to hundreds of rare and even forgotten twentieth-century books, all organised into arcane, beautiful, macabre and absurd by the store's owner Stephen Fowler. 


There is no doubt that Canada is one of the most beautiful, diverse places in the world – a fact that is just as evident in its unique cities as it is in the country's rural outdoors. So if you ever plan a trip to Canada, whether it's to ante up at Montreal's flashy casino after a bit of online training thanks to the help of this Canadian guide or to browse through Toronto's eclectic bookstore packed with unique gems, make sure you give yourself time to know these wonderful cities. You won’t regret it!
