If you want to experience the best that Canadahas to offer, pay particular attention to our outstanding restaurant coverage that will help you choose from the thousands of local eateries that cater to every budget and dining experience. From affordable, cafes and bistros to places where you can splurge on a romantic, candlelit dinner-like Tavern in the Park, Winnepeg (for the best food in the West)-you'll find it in see it Canada. Each review covers house signature dishes, ambiance, actual prices for a two-course lunch and a three-coursedinner (for two people), hours of operation, and what transportation will get you there.

The Sights
Whether you ride the passenger ferry across Halifax Harbor for a view of one of the most fascinating ports in North America, go to a National Hockey League game in Ottawa, paddle a canoe through the waterways of Ontario's Algonquin Park or spend the night in a teepee at Wanuskewin Heritage Park near Saskatoon, see it Canda will take you there. Accessibly written to help you navigate throughout the country without missing a thing, each attraction includes exact admission prices, what galleries and museums not to miss, and where to stop for quick bites and refreshing drinks along the way.
