Canada’s tourism agency recently began promoting three new experiences it hopes will inspire travelers “to discover the authentic Canada.”
Travelers can explore powerful human rights stories from across Canada and around the world in Manitoba; learn about Canada's military history with volunteer veterans in Ontario; and enjoy the culinary delights of one of Vancouver's oldest neighborhoods.
Destination Canada’s “Canadian Signature Experiences” collection now includes the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, where travelers can explore local stories and architecture from the Canadian Prairies and dine “on creatively-prepared, farm fresh meals.”
In Canada’s capital city, visitors can “walk through time” in four Canadian Experience Galleries presenting military history, “talk with volunteer veterans, reflect on how ordinary Canadians faced extraordinary challenges and experience how human conflict has shaped Canada.”
In Vancouver, the Railtown Urban Eats Tour, hosted by Off the Eaten Track, takes visitors to one of Vancouver's oldest neighborhoods, a “magnet for trendy small eateries even the locals don't know about. Guests can “nibble comfort food” in a former Japanese gambling house that's now a culinary training school, and sip wine and craft beers created on site at an early 20th century steel warehouse.
