Top 10 Places to Travel to this Summer

– according to Church & Dwight

Within Canada

Whistler, BC

Sure, the city is known for its majestic slopes, but without the snow you’re looking at a beautiful backdrop for outdoor adventures with an unforgettable view.

Toronto, ON

There’s nothing like getting your family’s adrenaline pumping by climbing up the CN Tower and leaning off the edge of a 553 meter high skyscraper!

Cavendish Beach, PEI

Red sandstone cliffs with crystal blue water surrounds you at the Cavendish Beach. While you’re there, explore historic sites, like the Green Gables Heritage Place.

Banff, AB

If you’re craving a breathtaking view – this place is for you! No need to go halfway across the world to become mesmerized by natural beauty. Kayak between the Rocky Mountains or simply take it all in. 

Quebec City, QC

Here you’ll find hints of European charm mixed with authentic French Canadian character. Grab a poutine and walk around the old city, home to iconic Chateau Frontenac. If your legs start to give in, hop on a horse-drawn carriage along the cobblestone streets. 


Grand Canyon, U.S.A.

One of the wonders of the world! It’s worth getting on a helicopter to soak in a truly life-changing experience.

Sesimbra, Portugal

This beautiful little fishing port is filled with colourful and authentic charm, known for its beaches, local cafes and fish restaurants. If delving into culture is what you’re looking for, this is it.

Kefalonia, Greece

Take a boat ride and you’ll be surrounded by picturesque villages, olive groves, beaches and tremendous mountains. 

Hong Kong, China

A bustling and exciting harbour city, you’d be surprised how easy it is for tourists to explore. There are lots of kid-friendly activities, such as Hong Kong Disneyland and Ocean Park.

 Siem Reap, Cambodia

A trip for the adventurous: the city showcases original ancient temples, including the Angkor Archaeological Park, cited as one of the most valuable archaeological sites in South-East Asia – so you know it’s worth getting over the jet lag for!

  1. These are all great places, and I’d love to visit all of them. I think China would be the absolute coolest. Everything about their culture is so fascinating.

  2. My kids need this for car travel. We had to stop many times for my daughter to throw up during our road trip.

  3. I have never been to any of these places, but I’d love to go someday. Greece would be one of my first places I’d love to visit. I think it would be an amazing experience. It looks like it would be very beautiful!

  4. I have always loved Toronto. I lived there in my early twenty’s and loved it. I have always wanted to see the Grand Canyon. I will have to try to get there soon.

  5. I have always wanted to go to Whistler, BC. It looks so beautiful there with the mountains. It would be a great place to take the kids.

  6. There’s not one place on this list that I wouldn’t love to visit. As a matter of fact, they will all be added to my bucket list. Fortunately I am not subject to nausea when traveling.

  7. I have been to a few places on this list but by no means all. I’d love to visit PEI as I’ve not been there yet and it sounds marvellous. 🙂

  8. Great list. I’ve been to all of the Canadian destinations listed and Quebec City has to be my absolute favourite. I loved all the other places as well but something about Quebec City makes me want to keep going back.
