With 1,000 adventures for all ages, it is never too soon or too late to discover new sights and novel experiences throughout North America.
When it is time to escape the ordinary, this guide is where you will find fun, fantastic, and life-affirming activities: do something different, go beyond the tried and true, experience the U.S. and its neighbors anew. It is perfect for recent graduates, soon-to-be retirees, inveterate daydreamers, armchair travelers, and anyone dreaming about a much-needed break from the daily routine.
The nation’s best travel experiences are organized by theme, with chapters divided by region and entries organized geographically and indexed by state. Among the wide array: natural wonders, cultural experiences, culinary delights, self-improvement vacations, sports-related endeavors, and more. Track Alaska’s “big five” (grizzly bear, caribou, gray wolf, moose, and Dall sheep) in Denali National Park, ski the Canadian Rockies, trace historic Route 66, make a pilgrimage to Elvis’s Graceland, or take a culinary tour through Mexico City.
This volume is the perfect gift for passionate travelers
