From shore to shore to shore, Canada is a beautiful country. With all the wonderful mountain ranges, waterways and wildlife, it’s a premiere vacation for people who love the great outdoors. Unfortunately, the country is located to the North of the United States, the perfect proximity for inclement weather during the last fall, winter and early spring.
During the winter months, there’s still plenty of things to do. People who prefer being outdoors can certainly take advantage of a chance to visit some of the best winter ski resorts in the world. Whistler, Canada would fit that bill. For the folks who prefer being indoors. Canada does have a number of really good land-based casino resorts.
To clarify, online gambling is legal for Canada residents. However, online gambling site operators cannot be licensed to provide said services. If players want to gamble online, Casumo offers this kind of access. However, Canadian players must be willing to accept the risk of doing so with online gambling sites operating in other countries. If disputes arise, Canadians will quickly discover they are at the mercy of the online casino and any regulatory agency responsible for the actions of its licensee.
If you are coming to Canada and looking for things to do, you might want to visit one of Canada’s top-notch casino resorts. Here are the three top land-based casinos that are a “must visit” destination for gambling enthusiasts.
