Travel Guide

Canada which includes mountains

From sea to shining sea, the two countries of this continent offer large sophisticated cities, quirky small towns, historical sites and wondrous natural beauty.

Canada, the United States and Alaska stretch across North America from the Atlantic to the Pacific and up to the Arctic Ocean. Among their hundreds of national, provincial and territorial parks are the rocky eastern shores of Acadia National Park, the green western wilderness of Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, North America’s tallest peak in Alaska’s Denali, and the Great Lakes, bison-filled plains and majestic Rocky Mountains in between. Enjoy highlights of the world’s favorite cities, including New York’s cultural arts, Quebec City’s unique French and English flavors, Los Angeles’ entertainment centers and lively beach towns along both coasts.
