Cheapflights.ca Welcomes the Royal Newlyweds to Canada

Offers Kate and William Some of Its Own Canadian Insider Tips

TORONTO--(Marketwire - Jun 21, 2011) - Cheapflights.ca, the online leader in finding and publishing travel deals, along with the rest of Canadians, are eagerly anticipating Kate and William's upcoming nine-day trip to Canada. With just 9 days to go before the world's most famous newlyweds make their first royal visit as a couple to Canada, the specifics on the regal tour are yet to be fully announced. And, although Prince William has vacationed to the Commonwealth twice in his life, his wife's never been to Canada, so Cheapflights.ca has prepared some tips for the Royal Couple's Canadian Tour with advice and recommendations for the royal duo to consider while here.

Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will visit seven cities across Canada during their whirlwind tour from June 30 to July 8. Cheapflights.ca's advice for the Royal Couple's Canadian Tour includes tips for four of their stops -- Ottawa, Montreal, Prince Edward Island and Calgary. Below are Cheapflights.ca's suggestions on what to do and where to go while in Ottawa and Calgary -- the first and last stops on the royal couple's tour. 

Ottawa, Ontario (June 30 - July 2) - Brush up on your French in the upcoming days if you want to fit in during your visit Canada's capital, Ottawa. Though the majority of its population speaks English, nearly everyone in Ottawa is bilingual. The ByWard Market is a great place to start to truly get a feel for the vibrant financial hub. Vendors set up shop at the downtown market daily to sell produce, flowers and -- the perfect gift for you to bring home as a souvenir -- maple syrup. Lucky for you both, you'll be in town for Canada Day on July 1, when museums and galleries across the city offer free admission. After learning about Canada's historical roots at the Bytown Museum, Parliament Hill and the National Gallery of Canada, unwind at the Ottawa Jazz Festival. Coeur de Pirate, a favourite among Canadians, is playing Friday night. We're sure you'll have no problem snagging tickets to hear Canadian's hippest music prodigy.

Calgary, Alberta  (July 6 - 8) - We've got a hunch this was planned, but just in case you're unaware -- the fabulous Calgary Stampede will be underway on July 8, just before the two of you depart for California. Grab front row seats for the toughest rodeo in Canada -- nay, North America. Before the rough-and-tumble festivities begin, you'll have plenty of time to see the inner workings of Canada's gateway to the west. Visit one of the city's many farmers markets or catch a show at the gorgeous Epcor Centre for the Performing Arts for a taste of authentic Calgary.
