Big country equals big experiences. It’s easy to feel familiar with North America because we’ve heard the songs, seen the movies, read the books but to actually plan a trip there – well where do you start? You could do a US state each year, but that would take 50 years and what about Canada? If you’re into nature the iconic National Parks like Yellowstone, Yosemite, California, Bryce Canyon, Glacier Bay will be high on your must do’s. Or what about white water rafting in Oregon, fly fishing in Colorado, bear viewing in Alaska or taking in the grandeur of the mountains on board Canada’s famed Rocky Mountaineer.
For city experiences - you can’t go past New York City for everything that makes the USA great. Take in a show on Broadway, sashay down 5th Avenue, catch the latest in museum amazingness - Gulliver’s Gate (the whole world in miniature spread over one city block). Speaking of museums, Washington DC has a plethora – 17 in the Smithsonian collection all in one easy to navigate area amid the pulse of the capital. And then there’s the music of New Orleans, glitter of Las Vegas, history of Boston and glamour of Los Angeles, food of San Francisco. In Canada don’t miss Toronto, Montreal and the straight out of a fairy tale - Quebec City.
