Overview

You'll never fall into the tourist traps when you travel with Frommer's. It's like having a friend show you around, taking you to the places locals like best. Our expert authors have already gone everywhere you might go--they've done the legwork for you, and they're not afraid to tell it like it is, saving you time and money. No other series offers candid reviews of so many hotels and restaurants in all price ranges. Every Frommer's Travel Guide is up-to-date, with exact prices for everything, dozens of color maps, and exciting coverage of sports, shopping, and nightlife. You'd be lost without us!

Come along with Frommer's Canada and discover some of North America's most spectacular scenery, from the towering peaks of the Rockies to the rustic fishing villages of Nova Scotia. Much more comprehensive than the competition, Frommer's covers all the major cities: Vancouver's hip galleries, dining, and nightlife; the art museums and architectural highlights of Toronto; Calgary's wild and woolly Stampede; and Montréal's charming French bistros and cafes. And of course, we'll show you the very best of Canada's great outdoors, from hiking in the national parks to biking its lovely backroads. Along the way, we'll point out all the best places to spot puffins, whales, polar bears, moose, elk, and more.

Our expert authors have logged thousands of miles throughout Canada. They reveal their favorite places and experiences, and offer unbiased practical advice that will help you plan the trip that's right for you, no matter what your budget.
