From coast to coast, there are so many great places to visit across Canada but very rarely do people talk about the small towns.

Thankfully, Travel+Leisure has released a new list that details the 12 best small towns to visit in Canada, in hopes of highlighting those less populated places that deserve just as much praise as say Montreal or Vancouver.

The travel publication based its picks on charm, adventure, and hospitality.

Based on these qualifications it should come as no surprise that a place like Baie-Saint-Paul and Victoria-by-the-Sea made the cut.

Here are the twelve Canadian small towns they recommend exploring most.

Golden, British Columbia

Baie-Saint-Paul, Quebec

Churchill, Manitoba

Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia

Tofino, British Columbia

Elora, Ontario

Victoria-by-the-Sea, Prince Edward Island

Banff, Alberta

Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario

St. Andrews by-the-Sea, New Brunswick

Dawson, Yukon

Trinity, Newfoundland
