As you probably know, 2017 is Canada’s 150th anniversary, and I sure intend to travel through this beautiful country as much as I can. Here’s a few reasons why I think this year is probably the best year to do so.
1. Canada Day is going to be epic
The day–and night–of the 1st of July is obviously always full of celebrations, but for this year it’s sure to be an even bigger deal!
2. Free Admission Pass with Parks Canada
Yep. Parks Canada is giving free passes to access their national parks, and I promise to use mine as much as I can! (Going to Banff in June; can’t wait!) Get your pass here.
3. Niagara Falls 150 events
The city of Niagara Falls will host 150 events through the year. You can find out more here!
4. Montreal’s 375th anniversary
Not only is it Canada’s 150th, but it’s Montreal’s 375th as well! I mean, it is kind of a big deal, don’t you think? There will be a bunch of great stuff going on all the way to December. Check it out!
5. More concerts and festivals
If you don’t believe me yet when I say there will be loads and loads of things to do this year, check out this article, where 22 more shows through the country are presented.
There’s really no way to get bored this year!
Happy exploring everyone!
