What Make TransCanadaHighway.com Unique?

While so many Canada Travel websites and books only discuss the major cities, OUR website and itineraries cover the DRIVE and the scenery (97% of the highway goes through rural areas or wilderness). Because we are not government funded we provide unique perspectives for visitors and travellers. For example, in Sault Ste Marie and Niagara Falls, we cover BOTH sides of the Canada-US  border.

We also cover many worth-visiting communities OFF the Trans-Canada Highway, like the Alberta Rockies and BC Rockies,  the Okanagan Region of BC, and the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), and Niagara Falls.
