Can anyone recommend eco/ green accommodation on BC's Vancouver Island in the $80-100/CAD per night range? I'm particularly interested in the West Coast (Tofino, Ucluelet) and Victoria areas.
is it common to see tornadoes in the prairies during july / august and is it crazy to want to see one!!
I am trying to find some reasonable accommodation in calgary as there doesnt seem to be many hostels. I would prefer somewhere that has travelers rather than long stay students etc. Ideally i would prefer the 25-35 age group as I am in my early 30's. Also open to hotels but they seem to be quite expensive. cheers
I'm planning on spending the holiday season back east but I'm not quite sure where I should go. From online research, it seems like Quebec City and Chicago would both be quite nice during the holiday season.
Has anyone been to either of these places during this time or does anybody have other recommendations?
I'm also considering going to NY for 2-3 days as I have a friend there. What is drawing me to Chicago and Philly is that I have never been there.
Also - if people have recommendations on where to spend Christmas vs. New Year's, that would be great!
Hi all my names Luke and im planning on travelling across next year in Canada July/August im trying to budget for 6 months at the most but not necessarily pinning my hopes on staying that long. Will $15,000 be enough to last me? As far as an exact route across i dont have one yet but i am pretty much hoping to see the usual and to do everything i can but dont want to go on a tour programme i prefer winging it and see what comes along while im there and being Bitish having a few beers and nights out is a must.
Would really appreciate any advice thanks
How would you do this trip? I see there are plenty of indirect flights, but what Canadian bus or train companies do it, and would they be easier than flying?

My husband and I are trying to plan a belated honeymoon this July or August in Canada. We are thinking of spending about 2-3 days in Montreal and 2-3 days in Quebec City.
Our top priorities when traveling are food and local culture (we are not super big into museums and such). I would really appreciate any advice that the travel community could give.
Also - we are on a budget but want to stay some place nice-ish as it is our honeymoon...
Thank you in advance!
My friend and I are planning to visit Montreal and Quebec City in late December/early January. I was wondering if there are any specific dates that it's good to be in either place because of certain events etc. that might be going on. For example, is it better to visit Quebec City before, on, or after Christmas?
Also, if anyone has any recommendations for NYE in Montreal ie. a cool bar that might be playing live music and is not too expensive. We are in our mid-twenties.
Hello, I've been searching for ways to get from Montreal to Baie St. Paul during mid-week. There appear to be shuttles directly there on the weekends, but unfortunately I can't leave until a Tuesday or Wednesday. What is the easiest way to get there from Montreal? I assume the train to Quebec City and then finding a bus to Baie St. Paul. Anyone know if there is regular bus service (or even a train) from Quebec City to Baie St. Paul? Thanks!

I am Planing to spend Christmas on Kamloops, but not sure if I rent a car or take the bus.
How is public transportation there?
Can we get to the attractions by public transport or do we need a car to go anywhere?
Sounds crazy, maybe....but I'm asking about conditions in March 2013. I know the average temperatures, but I'm more interested in activities/things to do while I'm there. A friend and I happen to have time off the first full weekend and decided to travel together. She has never been to Canada and I've already visited Toronto. We are young professionals, early 30's....I've seen some great ideas...Jean-Talon Market, Rue St. Denis, Underground City...But I would also like some nighttime activity, especially live jazz, as well. Ideas? Also, is the city 'shut down' or could we have some fun!
I'm a Western Australian planning on traveling across Canada in August 2013 (approximately 4 weeks).
I wondered if this is a good time to visit Canada?
Is there anything in particular people would recommend?
I'm also a little concerned that in articles and books Ive read it says Canada can be 'Very hot and humid' in August (especially inland). I just wondered how the heat and humidity compares to the Australian climate & what proportion of the month normally fits this 'hot and humid' description - not sure if some Aussies have been during this time of year or if Canadians have been to Australia and can give some advice? Particularly as I'm keen to do some out-door activities but am concerned it may be excessively hot & I should consider another time of year?
I also wondered if there would be any ice-hockey games on at this time of year (I know it is not in sea... more »
