Pearl Jam Canadian Guide – Vancouver

Well, here we are, at the end of the Canadian tour. Saving the best for last. Trying not to be completely biased at all, I would have to say that Vancouver is the best city, not only in Canada, but in the world. This is backed up by the city’s consistent rankings near the top […]

Serving as a staging point for large-scale oil sands projects that occur in northern Alberta, Edmonton is the northernmost North American city with over million in population.

Pearl Jam Canadian Guide – Calgary

Forbes Magazine ranked Calgary as the world’s cleanest city in 2007, while Mercer Quality of Living Survey ranked the city as the world’s first-placed eco-city for 2010.

Pearl Jam Canadian Guide – Toronto

Toronto is not only the largest city in the country, it is also one of the most dynamic. Sometimes known as the center of the universe, Toronto is the financial and commercial centre of Canada and offers fine art museums, suave cafe-bars, and luxury stores. And while Montreal is rich on culture and history, Toronto […]

Pearl Jam Canadian Guide – Montreal

Montreal is the second largest city in Canada. It’s official language is French but, being a large international city, everyone speaks English as well – more or less. With the French influence, the province of Quebec has a style closer to Europe than that of North America. But Montreal is more North American than the […]
