With the summer vacation season coming to a close, most U.S. travelers won’t be going on big trips until the Christmas break. But that doesn’t mean you can’t take some time off and travel to Canada from the U.S.

You’ll still enjoy another country, but the flights will be shorter and cheaper. You may even avoid needing to adjust for a time difference — the perfect combination for a weekend getaway or a short vacation.

Trips to Canada You Can Go on Now

Daily flights are available to most destinations for those wanting to travel to Canada from the U.S.. Talk to a travel agent to book flights, and they will suggest the best and cheapest routes.

For the fall season, our favorite destinations in Canada are the provinces of Ontario, Quebec, British Columbia, and New Brunswick.


Travel to Canada from the U.S. and visit Toronto and discover the rest of Ontario.
Toronto, Canada

When you think of Ontario, Toronto is top of mind. And any trip to Ontario cannot be complete without a visit to Canada’s metropolis. The city has it all, and it’s a must-visit for anybody traveling from the U.S. to Canada. Highlights include the CN Tower, the Royal Ontario Museum, the Distillery Historic District, and Yonge Street.

We also suggest traveling to Niagara-on-the-Lake, which is only a 90-minute drive from Toronto. This small town is the home to the Shaw Festival, where you can catch some of North America’s best theater. It’s also incredibly gorgeous, stands on the spectacular Lake Ontario, and has several top-notch wineries.


Visit Canada from the U.S. and discover the country's nature and cities
Montmorency Falls near Quebec City

The two major cities in Quebec are Quebec City and Montreal. The two cities are only 160 miles apart, so you can easily visit both cities in one trip. Both are very green with many parks. In the fall, the trees will change from green to yellow, orange and red, and all the shades in between.

Montreal is the bigger city of the two and fantastic if you want to experience great nightlife, bars, and dining. The arts scene is bustling, and you can see established and emerging bands almost daily. The city’s top attractions include the Old Port, the Notre-Dame BasilicaRue Saint-Paul, and Mount Royal Park. A visit to Montreal would not be complete without visiting the Plateau Montreal and going on a pub crawl on CrescentMackay, and Bishop Streets.

Quebec City is a fairy-tale-like city with a very European vibe to it. It also has excellent bars and restaurants, but things tend to close earlier than in Montreal. You won’t miss it, but Old Quebec is an absolute must! Not only will you see Quebec’s historic district, but you can also taste exceptional local cuisine. The Parc de la Chute-Monmorency (Montmorency waterfall) is another tourist favorite. And you can’t miss out on visiting Upper Town (Haute-Ville), where much of Canada’s colonial history took place, with Upper Town being the home base of Champlain.

British Columbia

Visit Victoria and discover its British colonial architecture.
Victoria, Canada

With the shoulder season in place during the fall months, British Columbia is a perfect destination if you want to avoid the summer crowds. Vancouver, Stanley Park, Victoria, Whistler. The province is bustling with amazing cities and parks.

Vancouver is a picturesque city with a mild climate throughout the year, making it a favorite with U.S. and international travelers. Stanley Park is Vancouver’s largest urban park amid the city’s urban backdrop. Discover 400 hectares of natural West Coast rainforest and enjoy the amazing views of mountains, water, and more.

Whistler isn’t only about skiing. It’s a great destination during the summer and fall. And there are fewer crowds now, so you can truly enjoy this majestic mountain to its fullest.

For a change of atmosphere, visit the city of Victoria. It’s much smaller than Vancouver and has its own distinct vibe. Once in the city, you may feel like you’ve suddenly ended up in Britain because of the colonial British architecture in the city’s downtown.

New Brunswick

Fundy Bay has the highest tides in the world. Visit New Brunswick in Canada to see it first-hand.
Fundy National Park, Canada

This Atlantic province is a nature-lover’s paradise. We love Fundy National Park any time of the year, but it gets incredibly picturesque during the fall. Enjoy the colors of the forest and the views of the ocean. The park is vast, with rivers and lakes running through it. You could spend your entire getaway there or go on a day trip.

Spend the rest of your Canadian getaway in New Brunswick by visiting FrederictonSaint John, and Moncton, the province’s cultural hubs. You’ll love the art galleries, fantastic restaurants, and the coastal vibe of New Brunswick.
