Canada - Eastern Vacations

ATTEND NATURE'S ANNUAL PARADE

For centuries visitors have traveled thousands of miles to witness Eastern Canada's yearly Technicolor display. The maples serve as the opening act, reaching their colorful peak from mid-September to early-October. The aspens, tamaracks and red oaks dutifully follow suit, saving their grand finale until about mid-October.

From Algonquin Park to the Niagara Parkway (once dubbed by Winston Churchill as "the prettiest Sunday afternoon drive in the world"), Ontario serves as the focal point for these grand shows provided by Mother Nature. But travelers don't have to plan their Canada vacation around such a short window in time to enjoy Eastern Canada's many natural wonders.

Blue Mountain ski resort and the lovely town of Collingwood draw adventure seekers in all seasons. Blue Mountain, Canada's third most-visited ski resort, provides the latest in technology to go with quaint village-style dining and shopping. Hit the slopes during the height of winter, or go mountain biking, swimming and spa-hopping during the "green season."

Other Eastern Canada escapes popular any time of the year include the metropolitan city of Toronto, the romantic, walled Quebec City and the pub-filled town of St. John.
