Parliament Hill, Ottawa
Why not spend Canada’s birthday in the nation’s capital? While this year’s festivities are happening throughout Ottawa, the place to be remains Parliament Hill. The noon and evening shows include performances by the National Arts Centre Orchestra, K’Naan, T. Thomason, and Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal. The giant Canada Day fireworks finale can also be seen from the central loop of Confederation Boulevard, Major’s Hill Park, and along the Ottawa River.

Niagara Falls, Ontario
This one is another no-brainer. Niagara Falls is already one of Canada’s biggest attractions, but on the country’s birthday, expect a ridiculous amount of people to come and celebrate, so arrive as early as you can. The phenomenal sights and sounds make Niagara Falls one of the places to be on July 1.
