As 2015 winds down, there’s no better time to start planning your vacations for 2016. When making those plans, you may want to put Canada near the top of your travel list. Spanning the width of North America, Canada has everything from beautiful national parks to major cities, and everything in between. With Radisson hotels across the country, there’s a great place to stay at every stop on your Canadian tour.
What better place to start your journey than in Ottawa, the capital city of Canada. Just a short walk from the Radisson Hotel Ottawa Parliament Hill is the Canadian Museum of History. Here you can explore Canada’s history, art, and culture or enjoy an IMAX film at the award-winning museum. Be sure to stop by the famous Rideau Canal for a beautiful stroll, or in winter, skate on what becomes the world’s largest ice skating rink.
After some time in Ottawa, head west to Canada’s biggest city: Toronto. We have multiple locations in the area, including Niagra Falls and the luxurious Radisson Admiral Hotel HarbourFront. If you’re a hockey fan, be sure to spend some time at the Hockey Hall of Fame in the heart of downtown. There you’ll get to soak in hockey history, and even get your picture taken with the Stanley Cup. Head up high, literally, in the CN Tower and on a clear day you can see over 100 miles!
Heading west to Winnipeg will offer a smaller city than Toronto, but still plenty of great reasons to visit. Notable among them is the Winnipeg Jets. Recently retuning to the city, this NHL team has the city buzzing with excitement, and the MTS Centre is both a great atmosphere and only a block from the Radisson Hotel Winnipeg Downtown. Our great location downtown provides convenient access to the Winnipeg Convention Centre, the vibrant Exchange District and the Manitoba Museum, the Royal Canadian Mint, Assiniboine Park and the Manitoba Theatre Centre.
Keep your road trip heading west for the ideal outdoor and city getaway. In one day, you can hike the Rocky Mountains and have dinner in an eclectic downtown neighborhood. Choose your city and mountain itinerary and sleep soundly at the Radisson Hotel & Conference Centre Calgary Airport. The hotel location, including complimentary airport shuttle, and style are truly unbeatable.
Extend your vacation in Alberta, Canada, with a stay in Edmonton. If you plan a trip this winter, you’ll get to experience some of the best skiing, snow tubing, snowshoeing, and outdoor ice rinks in the world. Not a cold-weather person? No worries—Edmonton offers a variety of spring and summer activities. Will you shop down 4th Street or try indoor surfing at West Edmonton Mall? Do it all when you stay at the Radisson Hotel Edmonton South near the airport or the Radisson Hotel & Convention Center Edmonton located near top attractions, like Fort Edmonton Park.
Plan an epic road trip across the wild and wondrous Canada or extend your stay in one city until you cross them all off your travel list. There is so much to see and do in Canada and Radisson looks forward to hosting you in some of our favorite cities.
