Considering that I have grown up my whole life in Canada, I really haven’t explored my own country all that much. I have travelled as far East as Winnipeg, Manitoba and as far North as Prince George, BC. There is a whole lot of ground that I haven’t covered, including so many beautiful and breathtaking Canadian Attractions. I have put together a list of my top 10 Canadian Attractions on my “want to visit” bucket list in celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday this year.
Most of the attractions listed you can find a Radisson Hotel and Suites not far away. Be sure to see what they have to offer when planning a trip across Canada as they can help with your planning and map out your trip. Whatever makes travel easier, I say go for it!

Top 10 Canadian Attractions on my Bucket List
One place I have been itching to visit for a very long time. This takes the top spot on my bucket list for that reason alone. When I worked with Radisson last year I discovered one of their hotels (Radisson Hotel and Suites Fallsview) had views of the falls. I thought that that would make a great place to stay while visiting.
Banff National Park & Moraine Lake
I have only ever driven through Banff (only a handful of times) and never actually explored there. I would love to be able to have time exploring Banff during the winter months when the mountains and lakes are all covered in ice and snow.
Some might not consider this to be a Canadian attraction per say, but I have been wanting to explore Toronto for what feels like ever. I just might be checking this one off the bucket list later this year though, yes!
Gros Morne National Park
I looked at pictures here and just imagined what it would be like to hike to the top. I don’t know how possible it would even be but man the view would be incredible. This one if for sure the adventure lovers dream, Gros Morne National Park in Newfoundland.
Bay of Fundy
Known for it’s wide range from high tide to low tide the Bay of Fundy got my attention from it’s deep and rich sand colour and curved rock formations. Add this place to your list when visiting the Atlantic Coast.
Point Pelee National Park
I discovered this national park while visiting the different attractions and historic sites recommended by Radisson. I would love to visit this southernmost point of Canadian mainland in August when it is said to be flooded with Monarch Butterflys.
This one is already check off my bucket list but it is one of my favorite places in Vancouver. It almost feels like everything slows down once you drive onto Granville Island. I spent a year going to the university (Emily Carr) and loved the chance to explore the shops, visit the market and eat icecream by the water on our breaks. I always have goals of going back when I can.
Ever since Wonderland in my hometown, Abbotsford, BC, had to change it’s name due to Canada’s Wonderland I have wanted to go (this was forever ago). This one is on the bucket list to bring the kids along with because I know they want to go there just as much as I do.
I may have been over to Vancouver Island a number of times but I have never visited the Butchart Gardens. I have just recently been introduced to these gardens and they look absolutely stunning, a place to visit on our next family trip to Vancouver Island indeed.
Another breathtaking attraction that I have recently discovered. The views of the crystal blue water looks so refreshing and dare I say it, Instagram worthy.
