Neighbors for as long as either country has existed, the United States and Canada have a long and storied history together. Sitting just across the world's longest unprotected border, Canada is the second largest country by landmass in the world, and yet is home to only 37 million people - less than California alone and only 11% of the US population overall. That's perfect, though, because it means millions of miles of unspoiled wilderness and landscapes unlike anything you've ever seen before.
From Toronto and Montreal in the east to Vancouver in the west, most of Canada's major cities sit close to the US/Canada border. And yet for hundreds of miles, the nation stretches north, into the arctic circle. From world class skiing at the dozens of resorts dotting the Canadia Rockies to white water rafting among the massive rivers stretching deep into the northern reaches of the country's upper provinces, you'll find an outdoor playground like few you've seen before.
That's not to say Canada isn't home to a broad array of culture as well. Inspired by its dual French and English roots in the east and Asian immigrants in the west, you'll find spectacular food options wherever you are. From a Canadian staple like poutine to the world class seafood you'll find all along the Atlantic coast, Canada's unique blend of cultures creates one of the most captivating cuisines you'll find.
Whether it's a weekend trip across the border or a much longer excursion in the wilderness, Canada offers a range of engaging, exciting, and at times awe-inspiring opportunities to see the world as it once was and now is, living alongside one another.
