Summer Holidays

La belle province lives up to its billing with lakes, mountains and more pastoral beauty than you can shake a fleur-de-lis flag at. Montreal is a party town and Quebec City is one of the oldest and best preserved cities in North America. The Gaspé peninsula is breathtaking, as is most of the St. Lawrence shoreline. While you may be intimidated to try out your shaky high school French, most people you talk to will appreciate the effort and are happy to help you out with their high school English.

It may seem unfair to lump all the Maritime provinces into one like this, but like PEI potato chips you can never try just one. Nova Scotia and New Brunswick are right next door, and with a bridge to Prince Edward Island, sandy beaches are just a short car ride away. Newfoundland is a little harder to get to, but from what I have heard it’s well worth the effort.
