Hang out with Paris' hippest crowd
America's more modest neighbour to the north is another country with an undeniable reputation for widespread dullness. This time, however, it's not taking it on the chin.
One user might describe Canada as "like a giant shopping mall with a huge car park and McDonald's every 50 metres". Another might claim it is full of "aggressive drivers, miserable folk, millions of wasps and boring little towns with chain restaurants attached". But, equally, many users stick up for the place.
"Get out of your car," says one, "and you'll find Canada has some of the most breathtaking landscapes in the world and some of the most hospitable people you're likely to meet." The Rocky Mountains, says another, "is among the most fabulous scenery I've seen".
Even a general critic of the country concedes "Vancouver Island is different: a beautiful place with friendly natives".

This is so wrong. Canada is not only beautiful and cultural, we have many amusements for children as well as adults. Toronto Vancouver Montreal and Ottawa. Ottawa has Winterlude and the longest skating rink in the world. At Winterlude you will also see ice sculptures, Jacques Cartier Park in Gatineau just across the river offers fun for the whole family. We have Niagara Falls with so much history there and lots of amusements for the kids including hotels with water parks inside. Rocky Mountains wow; take the train through the Rockies and you will see sheer beauty. Quebec City is full of culture and history and is fun for kids. Look for an outdoor oven that bakes homemade bread and maple butter artists row etc. etc. The Maritimes are exciting and very family oriented so you would find things to do.
Our country is wondeerful and I am so happy I grew up in this country with all the culture and history from coast to coast
