Canada: our kind, diverse neighbors to the north. It’s the second largest country in the world, in terms of size, but has only 10% of the population that the U.S. has with 37 million residents. It’s the country with the most amount of coastline in the world, diverse weather conditions year-round, beautiful mountain landscapes, and historical cities that date back hundreds of years. So why are only 10% of U.S. tourists considering Canada as a destination?
Most Americans don’t consider Canada as as place to visit because it’s so close and so similar. Most of Canada’s provinces may be English-speaking, but anyone who’s ever been to Canada knows that it has a thriving culture of its own, a diverse population, and incredible restaurateurs that are worth the short trip up north. Let’s start with one of the most gorgeous cities in the country: Vancouver.
Everything you could ever want is in Vancouver: a bustling downtown, a large park for nature enthusiasts, a mountain backdrop, and nearby beaches. With its unique population of immigrants from all over the world, everyone from vegans to meat enthusiasts can find multiple restaurants to their liking. Whether you’re looking for busy days in the city, adventurous hikes through the mountains, or relaxing days in the park or in a cafe, Vancouver has it all, and you’ll never want to leave.
