Here are some great places to check out on your next trip.


Montreal, Canada

Take a drive up to beautiful Montreal, Canada to enjoy a fantastic and entertaining nightlife, beautifully landscaped scenery, and a city filled with gorgeous historical landmarks to see. They have both French and English as their official languages, but not everyone speaks English well and not all of the street signs have English on them. If you don’t speak French Canadian you will definitely need to bring a map to make sure you are able to get to all the places you want to see. McGill University is a fantastic school right in the middle of the city and the Old Port is another popular place to visit.

Toronto, Canada

Another incredible Canadian city to visit is Toronto. With professional sports teams, gorgeous historical landmarks, beautiful shopping districts, and plenty of hotels throughout the city, it’s a great destination for you and the family where you will never be bored. They speak English primarily in this city so you don’t have to worry as much about the language barrier. It’s still a great idea to have a map with you though since you might not want to use your cell phone data when you are outside the country and if you don’t have immediate access to WiFi. You could always try to drive around until you find a Starbucks or other coffee shop to stop in and use their WiFi if you had to.


Charleston, SC

If you’re looking for slightly warming climates, head over to Charleston, SC and enjoy the beautiful Palmetto trees, bright sunshine, and colorful pastel house facades. Southern hospitality is alive and well in Charleston and their restaurant scene is unbelievable. You will not go hungry in this city and the alcohol is always flowing. Take a walk around the city and find all of its historical landmarks highlighting its various battles during the Civil War. The Southern Plantation style properties make for grandiose picturesque establishments that you can’t ignore. You can’t forget to bring your camera for this one, it will definitely be picture worthy.
