Sights and Activities in Canada

While in Canada, you may be looking for sights and activities to enjoy outside of casinos and your hotel. We've put together a list of sightseeing and activities for you to take part in during your travels, allowing you to fully experience what Canada has to offer.

Horse racing is extremely popular in Canada and there are various tracks located in almost every area and city of the country. One of the most renowned tracks is the Woodbine racetrack located in Toronto, which hosts the annual Queen's Plate race.

If you happen to be in Toronto during this time, we highly recommend attending the event. However, if you can't make it, the track still hosts regular races as well as many others.

For those who enjoy sports and want to try their luck, sports betting is another popular option. There are hundreds of top notch sports bars in every city in Canada where you can catch the game, place some bets, and enjoy some food and drink.

Additionally, there are various brick and mortar as well as online sportsbooks and bookies that you can visit if you prefer to bet in the heat of the moment right in a bookie office. Popular sports to bet on in Canada include hockey, basketball, and football.

Another highly recommended site to visit in Toronto is the Rogers Stadium. It is home to the Toronto Blue Jays and regularly hosts live sporting events, often with the Blue Jays playing.

The stadium also hosts other sporting events and concerts throughout the year thanks to its retractable roof that allows it to open on opportune sunny days, as well as close during rainy days, allowing planned events to proceed regardless of weather.

A tourism guide to Canada wouldn't be complete without mentioning a visit to Niagara Falls, which is worth everyone's time. Niagara Falls forms the border between the US and Canada and is made up of three different waterfalls: the Horseshoe Falls, American Falls, and Bridal Veil Falls.

The most famous of these is the Horseshoe Falls. The Falls attract millions of visitors each year, and there are various casinos and resorts located close to the falls.

Banff National Park is an exceptionally popular destination for visitors looking to take in Canada's famous natural beauty. It is the oldest national park in Canada and is home to a hugely diverse set of wildlife, including wolves, elk, and grizzly bears, among dozens of others.

The park itself features stunning vistas of snow capped mountains and lush green forests. There is an extensive list of outdoor activities that visitors can take part in, such as hiking, skiing, and guided tours. Banff Park is also home to the Banff Center for Arts & Creativity, which hosts various cultural events throughout the year.
