150 Travelzoo Tips: #121-130
Tip 121: Visit Parc national des Grands-Jardins near Baie-Saint-Paul, Que.
"It's been a renowned fishing spot for more than 100 years. The park’s mascot is a spruce grouse, who, according to officials, will 'try to impress you by parading, clucking and spreading its short wings and tail feathers. It is often seen on the hiking trails, and the noise it makes when taking off surprises many hikers.'"-- Travelzoo staffer Michael

Tip 123: Go To Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump, Alberta
"Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump just has to be seen and experienced. Reading about it caught my interest a little, but being there it is more than just interesting - it's really breathtaking. The interpretive centre is extremely informative. The walkout overlooking the kill site allows visitors to not just imagine this incredible hunt, but also presents a gorgeous view of the same landscape people would have seen thousands of years ago. The wildlife and scenery and sacred nature of the place make it a very special place that you feel lucky to visit." -- Travelzoo member Ella
Tip 124: Tour Toronto's Casa Loma
"The history of how Casa Loma became an outstanding landmark and the rags-to-riches-to-rags-again story of the man behind it was captivating. A worthwhile day excursion to take it all in, including the estate, the stables and the beautiful gardens." -- Travelzoo member Dana
Tip 125: Save on Vancouver Suspension Bridge Experience
"Most tourists flock to Capilano Suspension Bridge, which costs a wallet-crunching $43 per person. Instead, head to Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge, which is free as it’s a public park. There are loads of walking trails, too." -- Travelzoo deal expert Katie Jones
Tip 126: Visit St. Jacobs Farmers' Market in Waterloo, Ont.
"Going to the St. Jacobs Farmers' Market on Saturday morning has become a habit for our family. Not only because of the farm-fresh produce, meat, cheese, baked goods and even fresh-cut flowers from hundreds of vendors, but also for the history, culture and heritage of the Mennonite people. Every visit is full of pleasure and sometimes surprises." -- Travelzoo member Annie
Tip 127: Au Sommet Place Ville Marie, Montreal, Que.
"Instead of going to the top of Mont Royal for the views, head to Au Sommet Place Ville Marie, a 360-degree observatory that opened up this year, offering spectacular views of the city and the St. Lawrence River. It also hosts the most famous new brasserie in Montreal, Les Enfants Terribles." -- Travelzoo staffer Ivayla
Tip 128: Rushton’s Beach Provincial Park, Nova Scotia
"Located between the villages of Brule and River John, N.S., this park overlooks Tatamagouche Bay, which boasts the 'warmest waters north of the Carolinas' -- and it’s true! At low tide there are acres of sand bar for kids to play on." -- Travelzoo member John
Tip 129: See the Sites of Vancouver
"Visit Stanley Park, eat fish and chips at Lumberman’s Arch, then take a walk up Robson or Denman Street. It’s the place to be in the summer, and all the locals will be there." -- Travelzoo member Valerie
Tip 130: Head South to Ontario's Pelee National Park
"The southernmost point in Canadais also home to many of Canada's migrating birds. Don't forget to stop at nearby Pelee Winery." -- Travelzoo member Hugh
