As the days start to get longer and we’re looking forward to the start of spring and summer, people are starting to think about vacations and city breaks once again. Many Canadians are starting to look at travelling the world and looking for unique and enjoyable destinations. We’ve taken a look at some of the very best spots that are available and where you should think about visiting this coming year.

Las Vegas

Vegas has long been the premiere destination for people who want to enjoy a blowout and just have a good time. That’s why it’s one of the very best places for you to visit for your next vacation. Obviously, the brick and mortar casinos allow for fast payouts, but that can be achieved at online casinos in the modern world.

You can find an incredible range of casinos that offer fast payouts now which will allow access to your payments just as quickly as the real world casinos in Vegas. With online gambling now legal within the state it means you can enjoy online sites from the comfort of your hotel room when you visit.

Of course, if you prefer to experience it in person, Vegas is certainly the right place to do that. What makes it so impressive is that it covers a large range of different gambling options. Whether you enjoy table games, slots or sports betting, they can all be enjoyed here. However, what makes it especially impressive is that Vegas offers much more than just casinos, but the reason these other activities are available is undoubtedly thanks to the casinos.

Just look at The Bellagio. It’s been one of the most iconic casinos in the world for a number of years, with it even hosting fine art in the past, but it’s not just the games that bring people to see it. The light show and water fountain outside The Bellagio are almost as iconic as the casino itself. This entertainment is something that grabs the attention of visitors and is one of the great things you can go to see when visiting Vegas.

There are also other entertainment options, restaurants, bars and even shopping centers within the city. It genuinely is one of the few places on earth that offers visitors a little bit of everything. If you want to experience some glitz and glamour, and even if you don’t want to gamble, Las Vegas is definitely the place that you should be visiting.

South Dakota

If you want to take things back in time a little bit, then South Dakota is definitely somewhere you should think about visiting. One of the most interesting places is Deadwood. You don’t have to worry about Wild West shenanigans taking place when you visit here, it’s come a long way from the events that were depicted in the hit HBO TV show. However, it still retains some of its roots and it’s definitely a great place to go to get a feel for some history.

The biggest event of the summer in South Dakota is the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in the Black Hills. In fact, the 82nd rally runs August 5th to 14th in 2022. Even if you don’t take your motorcycle to participate, seeing tens of thousands of motorcycles all enjoying the winding roads of the Black Hills is pretty amazing. The Sturgis Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame are a great place to get the lowdown on event history.

Once this event has finished though, there’s still plenty to get up to in the Black Hills. It’s actually one of the most naturally beautiful areas on the planet. With gorgeous woods and places to camp, South Dakota is definitely a place worth visiting.

United Kingdom

Okay, so this one might be a bit of a bigger trip than the others, but there is a lot to enjoy in the UK. For starters, it’s a melting pot of different cultures. You can see completely different things in three different places and only have driven for 40 minutes. It’s impossible to single out just one part of the UK over any other, so your best bet is to pick an area that looks suited to your tastes and visit that destination.

If you like tourist areas, then London is the obvious choice. However, Edinburgh, Manchester and Birmingham all offer a similar experience with the added benefit of being a lot cheaper. You can even get different kinds of fries, or chips as they call them in the UK, with the West Midlands offering orange chips which are a battered version of chunky fries. If you want to experience three vacations in one, then the UK is a great place to visit.
