Often the warmest place in Canada, Vancouver in British Columbia, is on our vacation radar for the best places to visit in Canada in March. You can expect an average temperature of around 55 degrees, although it is prone to a lot of rainfall. Many travelers hit the city in March for the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival and the Vancouver International Dance Festival. The festival and event calendar has many other interesting things coming up annually.
If you miss the festivals, there are still heaps to see and do in Vancouver for solo, couple, group and family travelers. The seaport city has an active tourism board that is always promoting the city’s attractions. The Capilano Suspension Bridge is a unique thrill that combines culture, history, nature and action. Then you have the great dining experience at The Cliff House Restaurant. As you can probably guess, the views are epic. In March, the gentle spring breeze is welcoming and you will soon warm up walking around the gorgeous park.
The Vancouver Aquarium is an exciting attraction to visit any time of the year, and the Hell’s Gate Airtram is a suspended gondola that cruises high over a ferocious part of the Fraser River.

We recommend Radisson Blu Toronto Downtown, which has affordable rooms in a central part of town. In March, you can go swimming in their heated outdoor pool, making you feel like summer is already here. You will be near the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Toronto Music Garden, the fashion district and other major tourist attractions.

CN Tower is an exciting attraction with the edge walk, a terrifying hands-free walk over a platform around the tower exterior, for thrill-seekers. Others can simply enjoy the amazing views of the city and enjoy a meal at the tower restaurant.

Halifax, Nova Scotia
Another possible warmest place in Canada is Halifax. Spring is in the air and Halifax is a great place to be. As the city warms up, there is plenty to see and do, starting with a stroll along the picturesque waterfront. You are spoiled for choice with great restaurants serving up fresh seafood and dishes featuring locally-grown ingredients.
After one of the best meals you’ve had during a vacation, you can explore designer boutiques and little shops before catching the ferry over to Dartmouth for some more shopping. A harbour hopper tour is a great way to see the city on land and water. Meanwhile, the Halifax Public Gardens are just coming into bloom. The Victorian-era gardens opened in 1867 are near the busy shopping district of Spring Garden Road.
In 1984 the gardens were named as a National Historic Site of Canada. Take a picnic and a stroll with lots of photos of the flowers starting to burst into color. At night enjoy some live music at a pub and the weather might almost be warm enough to enjoy some of the patios like the ones at The Auction House and The Brown Hound Public House.
There are actually around 70 patios in Halifax, so you can have fun finding the best ones. There are also plenty of bars and nightclubs if you want to party the night away. For accommodation, you are spoiled for choice with lots of reliable chain brands to rely on. Best Western Plus Chocolate Lake Hotel is a lovely place to stay. It’s centrally located near the city’s biggest shopping mall yet retains a feeling of being in a rural setting with the giant lake, which is pretty in March. There is a heated indoor swimming pool to splash around in and the rooms are spacious and comfortable.
For a little more luxury, try DoubleTree by Hilton Halifax-Dartmouth. You will be pleased to find excellent customer service for an affordable rate, modern and clean rooms and an indoor heated swimming pool that is open until late. There are many shops within walking distance or a short taxi ride away.
Unleash Unforgettable Adventures With Affordable Vacations From Calgary.
The largest city in Alberta is getting warmer from the beginning of March and you can spend plenty of time inside and outside enjoying all the city has to offer. We love the vibrant downtown area that has lots of nice accommodation options.
Find somewhere to stay in the inner city, so you are near attractions like Calgary Tower, Bow Building, Peace Bridge and Glenbow Museum. After sightseeing, you’ll be in the right place for a shopping spree followed by food and drinks at a Calgary restaurant or bar. When you need some luxury and indulgence, book a spa session, manicure and pedicure, or beauty treatment to make you look and feel great.
The weather patterns are changing all over the world and every year is different. Winter is starting later and stretching well into the new year in many parts of Canada and the trend can be seen in many places. So there is no guarantee of how warm or cold it will be in March. Many places in Canada are still snow-covered in March, but spring is just around the corner.
Victoria, British Columbia
The capital of British Columbia gets a boost in tourist numbers in March as the weather gets warmer. Even winters are mild with little or no snow, so no wonder this is one of the first areas in Canada to heat up when spring breaks. Perched on the southern end of Vancouver Island, Victoria has a lot to offer for the March traveler. Victoria is a city with lots of parks, so as the weather turns nice to be outside, the parks come alive with locals and tourists who enjoy the lovely surroundings.
Butchart Gardens, with over 50 acres of flower beds, paths, water features and a photogenic carousel, is a garden many people say is the best in the city. When its time to eat, you should find your hungry way to Fisherman’s Wharf, where there are many waterfront restaurants. It might be warm enough to sit outside and you can watch the boats, seaplanes and people going by. You can book a whale-watching excursion for the following day and don’t forget to check the charming boutique stores for some local souvenirs.
Victoria’s British colonial past is reflected in the stunning Victorian architecture and for a fine example, you need to visit the grand Craigdarroch Castle mansion.Experiences like riding a double-decker bus, horse-drawn carriage or enjoying high tea will also remind you of the area’s British ancestry. Also, worthwhile experiences are taking a tour of the beautiful British Columbia Parliament Buildings and seeing the Robert Bateman Centre Gallery.
The city is full of art galleries and creative shops with all kinds of styles. These are just a few things to see and do in Victoria. You could stay for weeks and still have a long list of sights and attractions to visit.
Sunshine Coast, British Columbia
British Columbia’s Sunshine Coast lives up to its bright name with plenty of sunshine hours in March and throughout the year. You can only get to the 180 km stretch of coastline by ferry, boat or plane.
The atmosphere is relaxed and calm as you find yourself surrounded by nature. Hike the Sunshine Coast trail, take a boat ride through the Desolation Sound and explore the beautiful Tetrahedron Provincial Park. The food and drink scene in the Sunshine Coast is spectacular with fresh fruit and produce, locally-made food products and fresh seafood. Explore the ale trail, visit breweries and distilleries and roam the farmer’s markets to satisfy your foodie desires.
The Sunshine Coast’s mild March means you can spend lots of your vacation time outdoors fishing, playing rounds of golf, kayaking, canoeing, biking and boating. There are heaps of pretty beaches and lakes to discover, and although it might not be warm enough for most people to swim, it is nice to take long beach walks taking photos and collection shells along the way.
You have it all from bed and breakfasts to resorts to cabins and hotels when it comes to accommodation. If you are brave enough, you could go camping, although we would be waiting for summer for that back-to-nature experience. For a touch of luxury, book a room at the Beach Gardens Resort and Marina or Backeddy Resort and Marina.
What To Pack
Always pack for all seasons when you travel around places to visit in Canada in March. A warm jacket and lots of cozy accessories like hats and mittens will be handy when the temperatures drop. Also, pack for rainy and windy weather that can come at any moment. You might need your sunnies too. This is March in Canada and the weather is up and down like a roller coaster in March. Nighttime can be chilly, while the days can be surprisingly warm.
The next day can be back to freezing. The weather in Canada is very changeable and drastic. The ranges can go from double digits and back to the negatives all within a day. Wear layers, as it’s easy to keep your body at a comfortable temperature.
Don’t forget you can always go shopping at your vacation destination if you realize your packing and weather prediction skills were a bit off. Good luck finding the warmest place in Canada!
