Small town charm

Small towns can be particularly charming for people looking for Canadian vacation ideas for couples that live in the city. A lot of times, these people will want to escape the hectic pace of a city in exchange for the pleasant calm of a small town. Canada is ripe with these kinds of spots.

red sand beaches, fertile farmland, lighthouses and terrific seafood.

Port Rexton

One of the best spots in Canada for a romantic getaway is Port Rexton in Newfoundland and Labrador. It is a three-hour drive from St. John’s. This place is the epitome of a small town – its population in 2016 was at 340. It is a perfect place for a quiet vacation where you can recharge your batteries and enjoy the views whichever way you turn. The saltbox houses are sprinkled along the coast with their white fences and colorful paint jobs. With the icy blue sea on one side and the sprawling green hills on the other, you will be able to truly unwind. Do not fear to go thirsty or hungry, as there are several inns and restaurants on offer, as well as an artisanal brewery.

Niagara-on-the-Lake

Niagara-on-the-Lake in Ontario is one of the most romantic places in Canada. This small town attracts visitors with its historic village. It has a very vintage, romantic feel thanks to its restored Victorian architecture. The town is only a 15-minute drive away from Niagara Falls, which provides a nice opportunity for a day trip to this famous attraction. Some of the other activities available are obviously dining, going to the theatre or pedaling between the many wineries within this area. Wine drinking is another great pastime if you decide to vacation in this quaint town. Some people end up loving it so much that they decide to find a way to move to the area. In case you decide to settle down in Ontario, you will be able to take full advantage of all of the perks this great part of the world has to offer.

Prince Edward Island

Though technically a province, Prince Edward Island boasts many small towns typical of Canada. This can be one of the great Canadian vacation ideas for couples if at least one of you read the Anne of Green Gables books as a child. Even if this is not the case, this island offers great nature-related activities. Its national park is a great place to get acquainted with the coastal landscape characteristic of these provinces. If you are an active couple, you will be able to go on hikes and appreciate the Island’s forests, sand dunes, ponds, and salt marshes.

Cities

Many people dislike going into small towns for holidays. They often feel like such places are lacking in opportunities for different activities. This is particularly true if you are not looking to have a particularly athletic holiday involving lots of hiking, but you still wish to be active.

Montreal

Montreal is another one of the great Canadian vacation ideas for couples. Like Toronto, it is a bustling metropolitan city offering everything your heart desires. Its major draw is Old Montreal, where you can walk around endlessly enjoying its 17th-century architecture. The choice of the finest cafes, restaurants, and hotels is as good as in any big city. One of its special spots is the John and Yoko Suite in one of Montreal’s most sought after hotels. This is the suite in which John Lennon and Yoko Ono staged their famous bed-in for peace in 1969.
