The neighboring North American countries of Canada and the United States feature fascinating metropolises, welcoming small towns, forested wilderness and large lakes. Relax on delightful beaches along the Atlantic or Pacific ocean or Gulf of Mexico, ski on eastern or western mountains or venture into the far north’s frozen tundra.
New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Washington D.C. are large U.S. cities providing a sampling of American arts and culture, with tall skyscrapers, impressive museums and art galleries, numerous entertainment centers, varied ethnic restaurants and professional football, basketball and baseball teams.
Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Ottawa and Québec offer similar Canadian attractions and incorporate a French influence in language and customs, along with large Chinatowns. See ice hockey at its finest in the big city arenas and frozen outdoor ponds of Canada. Learn about the First Nations people who inhabited the northern parts of the continent long before Europeans arrived.
Drive across the continent and stop in small towns. In both countries you’ll find residents proud of their local points of interest, from the Giant Moose in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan to Canada’s Narcisse Snake Dens and New Mexico’s Pie Town, a whole town devoted to luscious desserts. The tourist stops are merely advertisements for the true attractions of the towns, the friendly residents. Wander down any North American small town main street and you’re likely to make a new friend.
Away from urban areas, the continent’s natural wonders include preserved forests and parklands with mountains, glaciers, waterfalls, volcanoes, caves, ravines, lakes and seacoast. Visit impressive and iconic U.S. national parks including northwestern Yellowstone with geysers and wildlife, the deeply etched southwestern Grand Canyon, the mangroves and crocodiles of the southeastern Everglades and Acadia’s northeastern windswept Atlantic island.
Canada has Banff’s western mountains and glacial Lake Louise, Prairies in the center part of the country and frozen tundra in Ivavik. Spend months or years touring the more than 40 Canadian national parks and nearly 60 U.S. national parks.
The two countries share the vast Great Lakes, popular for boating. Ski the Appalachian and Laurentian mountains in the east or the Rockies in the west.
Plan your North American visit to celebrate with local residents for Canada Day and U.S. Independence Day in early July, or Thanksgiving harvest celebrations in October and November.

This property had some of the best staff I have ever encountered at a hotel. Thomas (concierge) and Brian (manager) were top-tier professionals who care about the customers’ stays. The first night we stayed in a room with an amazing view, but very uncomfortable bed. We spoke to Brian, and he moved ...
So close to times square! Not terrible in price for the location. Dont expect any real hospitality in a huge city like this. Paid 19 dollars at the hotel bar for a makers mark on the rocks which i thought was laughable.
Great location, many sightseeings on a walking distance (MOMA, Central Park, Empire State Building, Radio City Music Hall, Rockefeller Center...). The Hilton is a very big hotel, therefore there were lines at the elevators, at the coffee bar and at the bar over Christmas. Apart from this I would ...
The property has a great location and charm but is simply tired. I always enjoy my stay because of that and the lobby and bar are always great places to hang out.
I always stay there when in NYC. The location is near everything I enjoy seeing and doing.
The morning of our first stay, the housekeeper tried to rush us out of our room because she said "its my last room" at 1130am. And our last day the housekeeper did not show up to clean the room until 5pm. Housekeeping needs to be a more patient and not wait until 5pm to clean the room.
