Canada leads the way on the New York Times’ 52 Places to Go in 2017 list, beating out natural wonders (the Matterhorn in Zermatt, Switzerland, #4), architectural icons (Hamburg, Germany, #10), evolving culinary centers (Tijuana, Mexico, #8 and Osaka, Japan, #15) and revitalized cities alike (Detroit, Michigan, #9) to claim the top spot.
The True North Strong and Free’s doors have always been open but as 2017 marks Canada’s 150th anniversary of confederation, visitors are encouraged to help celebrate through a wide variety of events planned throughout the year. Free admission to all 200+ national parks (including Pacific Rim National Park Reserve in Tofino, pictured at right) and historic sites and a full year’s celebration in Ottawa are just a few options for guests to enjoy during their visit. We’re thrilled to see our nation lead the way in must-see locales for 2017, and for travellers to experience firsthand what makes Canada a great place to live, work and visit.
