North America Overview
From the snow-capped peaks of the Rocky Mountains, to the depths of the Grand Canyon carved out over millions of years by the Colorado River, to the Statue of Liberty on the far eastern borders, or the breweries and eateries of San Francisco, North America is a vast, undulating landscape of variety. It is virtually impossible to take it all in during just one lifetime, and absolutely impossible to see it all in just one trip. Regardless if you happen to live in this section of the globe, or if you are a traveler coming from Europe or South America, or elsewhere, North America provides a unique series of opportunities for any type of traveler.
While the history of North America is not as ancient as Europe, what it lacks in millennia-old structures it makes up for in ethnic diversity and sprawling metropolises, ranging from places like New York City, New Orleans, Denver, and Seattle in the United States section of North America, to places like Vancouver, Toronto, Edmonton, and Quebec in Canada. And for breath-taking vistas one can look no further than the wide expanses of wild territory in Canada, where the tundra and the mountains stretch on for thousands upon thousands of miles, or the cliff-dwellings of the Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado.
North America is a bustling hive of activity, with two of the most economically advanced nations on the globe. The ethnic diversity is second to none, with dozens of different cultures all mixed together into a melting pot of diversity that combines for a place unlike any other on the face of this Earth. Regardless if you are coming to North America for the food, the scenery, the cities, the culture, or the people themselves, you will be hard-pressed to walk away feeling as though you have really experienced everything that the northern American continent has to offer. Strap on your shoes, tighten your belt, and get ready for the adventure of a lifetime.
