It's never too early to start planning your next vacation. Now that the snow has arrived, you might be dreaming about going on a magical winter getaway with your friends. Thankfully, you don't need to spend much money or travel too far to enjoy a fun-filled adventure. There are plenty of charming small towns in Canada perfect for winter getaways so that you can escape the hustle and bustle of the city.\nThere's a reason those small Canadian towns are often featured in Hallmark Christmas movies — they are dreamy locations. There's nothing like escaping big crowds and loud noises to stroll through an adorable town covered in twinkling lights and soft fluffy snow to help you feel relaxed.\nIf you're looking to enjoy some seasonal fun, you'll want to head to Saint Adolphe in Manitoba where you can have an incredible time getting lost in the world's largest snow maze. Or, you can walk along the picturesque Niagara-on-the-Lake in Ontario, which transforms into a Christmas village, and later in the winter, hosts an Icewine Festival.\nOther not-to-miss sights include riding an exhilarating alpine roller coaster that will have you travelling at speeds of up to 35km down a snow-covered mountain in Saint-Sauveur, Quebec.\nHere are eight charming Canadian small towns that you need to explore this winter for the perfect escape:\nSaint Adolphe\nAddress: Saint Adolphe, MB\nWhy You Need To Go: Here, you can visit A Maze In Corn, which is home to the world's largest snow maze. \n View this post on Instagram Had a crazy good time filming today with @cullenklassen in -38 at the @amazeincorn . I’ve got to say when Clint first texted me telling me he was going to build the biggest snow maze in the world I thought he was out of his mind and that it would be darn near impossible. Walking through today I was blown away by what they have accomplished, not only did they score the Guinness world record but it’s actually incredibly thoughtfully done. If you live in Manitoba do yourself a favour and go experience it! Congrats folks!!!
