Off the Beaten Path Canadian Destinations
Canada is a very large country and there are many large cities to explore and places off the beaten path within the cities, but I'm going to take you outside the cities.
My favorite place off the beaten path in Canada is without doubt, the North shore of Lake Superior. The north shore of Superior is full of legends and stories as well as natural beauty. A great place to hike and a great place to relax.
Another place I love is the Bay of Fundy, which is part of Nova Scotia as well as New Brunswick. If you circumnavigate the Bay of Fundy, which you can because there's a ferry between Digby and St. John - you have fine food, you can go whale watching, you can walk on the floor of the ocean and you can ride the tidal bore which is wilder than rafting, white water rafting. So it's a very fun place.
Another place in the East, is Gros Moor National Park in Newfoundland. This is a forgotten area of Canada that just too many people do not get to, but it's beauty rivals the Rockies it's stunningly gorgeous, and while in Newfoundland if you can, hop over to Saint-Pierre and Miquelon and you're going to France by taking a ferry. It's just a short little ferry.
Going to the west coast, Tofino is just a wonderful place, wonderful beaches in Tofino. It's not quite off the beaten path because it's been discovered a little bit more but it's definitely worth the trip.
And then one very long path that everyone should take at least once is a drive across the Prairies. The Prairies are beautiful in their own way, they're known as big sky country and it's just gorgeous. Really it should be explored and enjoyed.

Wallis and Futuna, officially the Territory of the Wallis and Futuna Islands, is a French island collectivity in the South Pacific between Tuvalu to the northwest, Fiji to the southwest, Tonga to the southeast, Samoa to the east, and Tokelau to the northeast. Though both French and Polynesian, Wallis and Futuna is distinct from the entity known as French Polynesia.
Its land area is 142.42 km2 (54.99 sq mi) with a population of about 12,000. Mata-Utu is the capital and biggest city. The territory is made up of three main volcanic tropical islands along with a number of tiny islets, and is split into two island groups that lie about 260 km (160 mi) apart, namely the Wallis Islands (Uvea) in the northeast, and the Hoorn Islands (also known as the Futuna Islands) in the southwest, including Futuna Island proper and the mostly uninhabited Alofi Island.
The overwhelming majority (99%) of the people in Wallis and Futuna are Catholics, served by their own Roman Catholic Diocese of Wallis and Futuna. The culture of Wallis and Futuna is Polynesian, and is very similar to the cultures of its neighbouring nations Samoa and Tonga. The Wallisian and Futunan cultures share very similar components in language, dance, cuisine and modes of celebration.
Fishing and agriculture are the traditional practices and most people live in traditional fate houses in an oval shape made of thatch.

Top 10 Places to Visit in French Guiana
Top 10 Places to Visit in French Guiana
Deep in equatorial South America, French Guiana (also known as Guyane) is a department of France bordering Brazil, Suriname, and the Atlantic. It's a land where old abuts new in striking incongruity. Dense rainforests shelter centuries-old indigenous villages, while rockets zoom overhead, launched from the country's lucrative Space Centre. The capital, Cayenne, is a melting pot of French, Asian, African, and Brazilian cultures, and if you visit during Carnival, between Epiphany and Ash Wednesday, you can join in the celebrations with parades every weekend.
La mythique route 66
La mythique route 66 sur
La route la plus mythique
Dans les années 20, la mythique route 66 traversait une grande partie des Etats-Unis. Elle partait de Chicago et débouchait, 3 500 kilomètres plus loin, sur le Pacifique à Santa Monica près de Los Angeles. Cette voie de communication a permis à des centaines de milliers d'Américains attirés par le soleil de déménager vers l'ouest et le sud-ouest du pays.
De nos jours, seules quelques portions existent encore qui longent souvent l'Interstate 40. Délaissée, la route 66 est un moyen de découvrir une autre Amérique à la fois historique et intemporelle, permet de traverser des villes fantômes, de s'arrêter quelques instants siroter une bière dans un motel, de rencontrer des personnages insolites, et parfois de se retrouver dans un décor de cinéma. En effet, quelques irréductibles comme des motards ou des amateurs d'armes tentent de s'inventer un passé un peu désuet dans une Amérique qui doute d'elle même. Ce documentaire offre au téléspectateur un voyage au coeur d'un pays décalé, vécu et rêvé, celui de l'Amérique de la route 66...
