For many, autumn means falling leaves for crunching underfoot or raking into a piles for canon-balling. For us, autumn’s colourful by-products are a full sensory experience. Right now, trees all over the country are exploding in shades of red, orange, and gold. Canada is a beautiful country year round, but the fall leaves bring something special.
Whether you’re in the middle of the city, out in the country, or deep in the mountains, trees are celebrating the change in weather and giving us a spectacular show. And we’re giving them a standing ovation!
Nicely done, Canada. Nicely, done.
Here are 10 stunning places to enjoy autumn – and the fall leaves – in beautiful Canada.
1. Stanley Park, Vancouver, British Columbia
There’s something quintessentially West Coast about wandering around a drizzly Vancouver seawall with a pumpkin-spiced latte in hand, and enjoying the coziness of Stanley Park.
2. Cassidy, British Columbia
Who wouldn’t want to take a fall adventure down this path in Cassidy, B.C.? It’s the perfect blend of colours, transitioning from summer to fall with rustic elegance, and just a hint of mystery. How exciting!
3. Kelowna, British Columbia
You, too, can bundle up in Kelowna and enjoy the crunchiness of leaves, warm sunshine, and a rambling stream before the weather turns colder. Just pack up the truck and take a quick drive out to Mission Creek Regional Park to explore!
4. New Denver, British Columbia
If this isn’t the perfect weekend, we don’t know what is. Nothing says fall coziness more than an afternoon in the park with our fur-babies. Who packed the picnic?
5. Princes Island Park, Calgary, Alberta
Even in the middle of the city, Calgarians enjoy the ambiance of fall nature and people watching in Prince’s Island Park.
6. The Rocky Mountains, Alberta
Want to get away from it all? The Rocky Mountains in Alberta are the perfect fall getaway from… everything. Nothing but rugged wilderness out here!
7. Waskasiu Prince Albert Park, Saskatchewan
Frost is showing up in some parts of Saskatchewan already – like here, in Waskasiu Prince Albert Park. But that doesn’t stop us! The gold in those trees makes us feel like we’re treasure hunting!
8. Mont Pinacle, Quebec
Now that’s a view! While we love the scenery in Mont Pinacle, it’s the cozy rainbow of fall colours the trees are displaying that warms our hearts.
9. Hamilton, Ontario
We think we’ll stop and sit a while. Right here. If you bring the hot cocoa, we’ll meet you there.
10. Nova Scotia (or out your own back door!)
Leaves are a brilliant red in Nova Scotia this time of year. It has us all fired up! But chances are, if you look out your own backdoor, they’re just as colourful. We’re sure lucky to live in such a beautiful place.
