It took leaving home for me to really appreciate North America. Only from afar was I really able to appreciate the range of experiences in the USA. Mexico is different than you probably think it is. And when did Canada get so cool?
North America is vast. Diverse. Stunning. Take your time to see a different side of San Francisco whether you go on a taco tour of the Mission or visit during the very drunk and very naked street festival, Bay to Breakers. Seattle is still home of the flannel, though it has become less Kurt-Cobain-flannel and more Patagonia-flannel over the years. Cities like Portland manage to slip under the radar in spite of strange stays like elementary-schools-turned-hotels and some pretty superior donut spots. And even Birmingham, a Southern city you may not have heard much about, has a historical legacy and a serious beer scene worth exploring.
But the places that really make North America supreme are the national parks. Dodge cholla cactus at Joshua Tree or sleep under the stars at Yosemite. From the jagged Rockies to the painted red canyons of Utah, there are so many places you really can’t go a lifetime without seeing. So skip Bourbon Street and Disney World, and instead see all the beauty that North America really has to offer. Go urban or get outside. Either way, I can promise you it’s going to be wild.
