July 1st not only marked Canada day but this year it was also the country’s 150th birthday. From coast to coast and everywhere in between, this country is filled with lakes, forests, glaciers, mountains, and so much more. It is also home to a handful of weird and unusual destinations and natural wonders to see. In celebration of this country, here are 10 of the most unusual spots to visit.
Hands down one of the most gorgeous cities in the province, Quebec City is home to many things from historic sites to stunning architecture. Over the past year of visiting this city, it has quickly become one of my favorite places as well as a place I constantly think about visiting when I’m not there. Today I’ll be sharing with you a few of my favorite photos from my trips to Quebec City in the hopes that it will inspire you to plan your own trip to this gorgeous place. Enjoy!
Since 2004, the Bleu Lavande lavender field in the Fitch Bay area in Stanstead has been a popular tourist destination for anyone visiting the area. Known to be one of the only of its kind in Canada, the lavender farm has managed to flourish over the years regardless of the hardships of the climate. With multiple different activities, events, and things to do at the fields, it’s a great place to visit for a day of summer fun.
Going strong with six seasons already in the bag and a seventh on the way, American Horror Story is a hugely popular show and personally one of my favorite shows. With a different theme for each season, the show continues to gain views with each new episode. Most of the stories portrayed in the show are also based on true events such as the Black Dahlia murder as well as the John Wayne Gacy clown killings. In addition to this, a lot of the places depicted in the show are also real life places that you can visit. Found mainly in California and New Orleans, these are the best places to visit to pay homage to American Horror Story.
From cultural and historical to musical, there are hundreds of different kinds of festivals all around the world each year. Though summer may be on it’s way out and it is no longer the unofficial festival season, it is never too late to start planning out which festivals are worth attending next year. Compiled here are some of the most well known and some lesser known festivals that are worth traveling for.
Traveling has long been known to be the act of going to a different country or city, specifically one that is as far away from your hometown as possible. There is nothing wrong with this but people rarely realize that there is so much to explore and see in their own country or province/state. I’ve recently decided to try to visit more and more places within my own province as Quebec offers up a multitude of things to do and see. One of these places is the town of Magog/Orford. Found in the Eastern Townships of the province, this lakeside town is one of the largest tourist regions in the area. The town is located at the foot of the majestic Mount Orford and is a quaint, little town waiting to be explored. Here are some things to do and places to grab a bite if ever you’re in the area.
A huge part of traveling is getting to experience new dishes and unique foods that you wouldn’t be able to otherwise have back at home. This is why finding good restaurants to visit in each town is part of the fun of visiting a new place and is one of my favorite things to do when I travel. Some of these restaurants however, go completely over the top and think out of the box. From a restaurant found under the sea to one that is based around toilets, here are some of the most unique restaurants in the world that you must visit at least once in your life.
