From all economic and anecdotal indicators, the ‘Great Canadian Road Trip’ will be the vacation theme of summer of 2017. So far, gasoline prices are lower than they were last summer and the Canadian dollar, while gaining ground in relation to the US greenback, is still well below par. This is great news for Americans, visitors from overseas and Canadians too. Canada’s Garden Route is the most comprehensive listing of Canadian gardens and garden experiences.
While you’re travelling around the country this summer and want to adjust your ‘route’ to stop in and visit some of the finest examples of ornamental horticulture the country has to offer – this is the website that will help you find the perfect garden experience you’re looking for. You can search for gardens by name, category, province or city. Just click on the link that best suits your purposes. Canada’s garden experiences look forward to welcoming all visitors, whether you come from across town or from around the world.
Choose from one of the garden experience categories in the map legend below to view the listings in that category.

Well, there’s an easy solution to that: bring them along!
