Window-shop Tiffany’s on New York’s Fifth Avenue, gaze up at Lincoln’s wise face in Washington, brave the Mummy’s Revenge at Universal Studios in Los Angeles – or ride a riverboat on an alpine lake, gaze into the Grand Canyon’s dizzying depths, bump over the cobbles on a bicycle in Nantucket, hike the Alaskan wilderness.
The United States has history, scenery, entertainment and shopping on the widest and grandest of scales, all presented with enormous enthusiasm and friendliness. Seeing it on the screen is nothing to being there and feeling the real-life buzz, as the yellow cabs honk past, the diner door swings open and locals tell you with a smile, “I want you to have a good time in my country”.
Canadians are equally welcoming, and whether your thing is bears in the woods, fresh powder snow at Whistler or crunchy baguettes at a boulangerie in Montreal, you’ll have a great time here. From the polar bear’s frozen wastes to the far horizons of the prairies, from the sheltered sounds in the west to the rocky bays of the east, you’ll make memories to last a lifetime.
