A visit to Canada doesn’t need to break the bank! Culture Trip has found the best affordable family vacation destinations from coast to coast.
Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland
Gros Morne is a perfect location for an outdoorsy, budget-friendly, family vacation. The park entrance and camping fees are low, and there are many fun activities, including hiking, fishing, paddling, and visiting the on-site aquarium.
Halifax, Nova Scotia
Canada’s big cities can be crazy expensive, so enjoy city life at a fraction of the cost with a visit to Halifax. This charming coastal city comes alive in the summer when tourists come from around the world for the beaches, seafood, festivals, and famous maritime hospitality.
Murray Beach, New Brunswick
For the perfect beach vacation, consider Murray Beach in southeastern New Brunswick. Here you’ll find some of the warmest waters in all of Canada, along with a whole host of nearby activities and attractions, including kayaking, farmers markets, historic sites, and camping.
Eastern Townships, Quebec
The Eastern Townships are a gorgeous year-round destination located near Montreal and offer more adventures than your family could ever fit into one trip! Cycling, skiing, festivals, water sports, and simply wandering through the quaint towns are just a few of the many amazing activities that your family will love.
1000 Islands, Ontario
While Ontario’s Muskoka cottage country is stunning, it’s not exactly easy on the pocketbook. Enjoy the province’s natural beauty at a better price in the 1000 Islands region. From skydiving to shopping, the area has an activity to suit every family’s interests and budget.
Interlake Region, Manitoba
Manitoba isn’t usually top of mind for vacationing, but the province’s Interlake Region is an ideal spot for a gorgeous outdoorsy family trip. Walk the boardwalks, explore the boreal forests, relax on the sandy beaches—and keep an eye out for Manipogo, Manitoba’s cousin to the Loch Ness!
Visit the Parks in British Columbia
Did you know that British Columbia, Canada’s westernmost province, is home to over 1,000 parks? You and your family can take dips in the ocean, hike through mountains, paddle through clear lakes, and enjoy the province’s unparalleled natural beauty.
