Canada 150? For me, it’s more like Canada 19! My past 19 years in Canada have been fabulous, I’ve loved them. As I can’t speak for the other 131 years, I’ll focus on my 19.
I’ve had the privilege of experiencing many different cultures and places, and Canada still holds that coveted top spot in my heart. I’m not ignoring its flaws by any means, but, I think today is a day for celebration. Today, I want to share with you my favourite Canadian places and spaces!
- Sackville, NB – Sackville holds a special place in my heart. From the cute coffee shops to the farmer’s market, my grandparent’s house, and Perpetual Motion dance studio, this little university town is bursting with personality and love.
- From the East Coast to the Western half of the country, number two is Banff National Park. The stunning beauty and quaint feel put Banff on my list of favourites.
- Cape Breton- Skyline Trail. If you’re headed to Cape Breton, this trail is a must-see! With natural beauty and the beautiful weather that we had, I instantly fell in love with this place.
- Fredericton, NB. My newest Canadian love, the capital of New Brunswick is a lively, friendly, and young-feeling city, that really feels like a small town. Having completed my first year of university at UNB, Fredericton is my new home.
- You can’t have a list of Canadian bests without including Ottawa and parliament hill. Filled with Canadian pride, this bustling city is charming and easy to love. I’d like to spend more time here.
- To finish off the list, my all-time favourite Canadian place. The town that raised me, the place I will forever call home. Bordered by the Tantramar marsh and a stone’s throw from the magnificent Bay of Fundy, Amherst, Nova Scotia.
