7 unique places in Canada that will prove just how strange this country is

There are many unique places in Canada. And if you’re planning an odd road trip this summer, you should surely include these weird locations on your schedule.

Vulcan, Alberta – unique places in Canada

This location is ideal for Trekkies and sci-fi aficionados.

According to its official website, this little Albertan town was not named after the fictional planet in the Star Trek series, but rather for the Roman god of fire in the 1910s.

However, as the TV series and films became more successful, the town rebranded itself and became one of the top destinations for Star Trek enthusiasts to visit.

The replica of the Starship Enterprise and the “Trek Station” are two must-see attractions.

Kimberly, BC

Do you wish to have a fantastic time but cannot afford to fly to Germany?

So, how about visiting this one-of-a-kind British Columbia town with a downtown “Platzl” modeled after a Bavarian village?

According to the town’s tourism website, the German motif is no longer the plan for future development for Kimberly, but there is still a gigantic cuckoo clock created in the 1970s to help set it apart with some Bavarian flair.

St. Paul, Alberta – unique places in Canada

Albertans appear to have a fascination with space. In the wild rose province, there is another town with a distinct space-like aspect.

What is the feature? A UFO landing strip.

The landing pad is located near St. Paul, Alberta, and was erected in 1967 in partnership with the government to commemorate Canada’s centennial.

And, whether you’re an extraterrestrial or a human, you can walk next door to see if the UFO Visitor Centre does a decent job of welcoming ETs.

Watson Lake, Yukon

If you’re seeking for a sign, you should pay a visit to this small Yukon community.

The forest of signs began with a single post from Danville, Illinois, according to TravelYukon.

Since then, the signpost forest has grown to include approximately 80,000 signs from all over the world, including Canada and the United States, as well as Germany and other countries.

Every sign, plaque, and lithe cense plate was placed there by a member of the public, so if you want to contribute, bring your own sign from home, some nails, and a hammer.

Dildo, Newfoundland & Labrador

This small Newfoundland village is well-known for its agriculture — just kidding. It’s famous due of its obnoxious name!

Dildo, Newfoundland, sits on the Atlantic coast and loudly proclaims, “There’s no place like Dildo!” – and that just might be true.

The village also has a local brewery and a Captain Dildo statue.

What is the meaning of its name?

According to the official Newfoundland and Labrador website, one hypothesis is that it derives from an anglicized version of “Ile d’eau,” while the other, more plausible, theory is that it originates from the traditional word for a rowboat pivot pin.

St. Pierre and Miquelon, France

Although this is not a part of Canada, did you know that a true French region is only around 20 kilometers away?

While the islands are minor in terms of population and geography, they appear to exist in their own world.

According to Newfoundland and Labrador tourism, the area has its own time zone, French culture, and is far more European than Canadian.

It accepts Canadian currency but utilizes the Euro, and you’ll need European power adapters to connect in any gadgets.

All of this is only a ferry ride away from Fortune, Newfoundland.

Churchill, Manitoba – unique places in Canada
