From the famed ski slopes of Whistler to the roaring majesty of Niagara Falls, some the world’s greatest travel destinations are just north of the border, in Canada.

With an overload of Canada travel options, which of these destinations are most popular among travelers? Hipmunk analyzed its travel data from 2015 to find out.

Canada: Toronto, Mississauga, and Niagara Falls

Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Missisauga, Ontario, Canada
Niagara Falls

I just recently got back from a family vacation to the Toronto area. I hadn’t been there since I was little so I was very excited to see the city and Niagara Falls. We stayed with my mom’s cousin and were thoroughly spoiled by their family the entire week! My cousin and her boyfriend took us out for authentic Japanese food and even had a wonderful barbecue for us the night before we left.

In Mississauga, where we attended a South Asian festival and got henna done on our hands!

Niagara falls!
The start of the falls! Basically a giant, terrifying sinkhole!
Oh, Canada!
Rainbows are common near the mist!
Soaked on Maid of the Mist – about $20 (Canadian) per adult.
Who wants to try Ding Dong pastries in Toronto’s Chinatown?
Kensington Market, a street full of cute but expensive vintage clothing stores.
Toronto’s Distillery District. A brick-paved walkway of little shops and restaurants. When we went there it was very empty but it’s typically the “place-to-be”.
Right at home on Princess St.
Sold my soul for some dessert in Toronto’s St. Lawrence double-decker market.
St. Lawrence market – we had delicious crepes for breakfast! This indoor market is open during the day and has two floors of fresh meat, fruits, vegetables, desserts, meals, and all kinds of knick-knacks you can think of. You can easily spend a couple hours here! Come with an empty stomach!
Amazing end to the week! We got completely spoiled!
