Canada is a huge country:
The Longest Street in the World
The distinction of the longest street in the world belongs to Yonge Street in the Province of Ontario. Yonge Street starts at Lake Ontario, and runs north through central and northern Ontario to the Ontario – Minnesota border, a distance of over 1178 miles / 1896 kilometres. The Guinness Book of World Records recognized this claim as late as 1998.
Most of Yonge Street today exists as Highway 11, north of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). Due due the development of the GTA, the old highway lives on as side roads, dead-end roads, or overgrown wooded trails.
The Longest Highway in the World
The Trans-Canada Highway between Victoria, BC and St. John’s, NF is the world’s longest national highway with a length of 7,821 km / 4,860 miles.
The Longest Coastline
Canada has the world’s longest coastline: 202,080 km / 125,566 miles.
Longest Tunnel on the Continental
CP Rail’s 9 mile / 14.5 km long Mount Macdonald Tunnel, in the Rogers Pass area of British Columbia, is the longest tunnel on the continent.
The World’s Longest Freshwater Beach
Wasaga Beach on Georgian Bay is the world’s longest beach, 8.6 miles / 14 km. Wasaga Beach is located about 2 hours northwest of Toronto, Ontario.
