Entertainment And Dining Out
Visiting Canada offers interesting experiences, such as Bear or Whale Watching. Various festivals and events are held each year, as a celebration of the cultural heritage of the country. Spring marks the beginning of the Canadian music festival season, while fall is a time for holding literary and film events. In winter, Canadians and their families visit ski resorts, to practice skiing, snowboarding and hockey. Except for a few exceptions (maple syrup, Nanaimo bars, butter tarts, beaver tails, etc.), there aren’t many foods recognized as typically national in English Canada. On the other hand, French-Canadian cuisine represents a mixture between tradition, French and English-speaking North American influences. Larger cities offer a great variety of ethnic food from Europe, Asia and the rest of the world. For instance, Montreal is famous for its Jewish specialties, while the Prairie Provinces – offer Ukrainian gastronomic twists.
