There is so much to see and do in North America. Not only will you be able to see the second largest country in the world in Canada, it sits atop of arguably the strongest country in the world – the United States. History, beauty and more are awaiting you in North America. Here are some top places to include in your trip itinerary.
The Grand Canyon
This massive change to the regional landscape is in Arizona, USA. Not only is it one of the Seven Wonders of the World, it is massive. The canyon stretches almost 300 miles and most of the rocky – and steep – walls drop over a mile to the canyon floor.
Banff National Park
This stunning national park happens to be the first one that was ever established in Canada making it that country’s oldest park. It is located in Alberta and also happens to be the largest park in Canada as well as the most visited. It remains largely untouched.
A trip to the United States has to include a stop in The Big Apple – New York City. You may know it from the annual New Year’s Eve bash that fills the surrounding area each year. Times Square is visited each year by well over 39-million people.
There is no doubt that this is one of the most spectacular natural wonders of North America. The falls are actually three different sets of waterfalls located in Ontario, Canada. Over 14 million people make it to this site each year making it one of the most visited attractions on Earth.
Golden Gate Bridge
Built and completed in 1937, this bright orange bridge is the gateway to the city of San Francisco, California. It happens to be the world’s longest suspension bridge that many see when driving across it. You may choose to bike or walk across it to soak up the views.
Located in Orlando, Florida, this is the flagship of the empire created by Walt Disney. It happens to be one of the most popular tourist destinations in North America. It also happens to be the world’s largest and most visited theme park. This is truly a fun and magical place to see.
Glacier Bay National Park
Alaska is home to this stunning jewel. It is one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites and is home to massive glaciers. If your trip plans include whale watching, kayaking and wildlife viewing, you can’t do much better than Glacier Bay National Park.
