Most people view North America as three countries; the United States, Mexico, and Canada. However, this region includes 50 U.S states, various Mexican states, and 13 Canadian provinces. It is also very diverse, with English, French, and Spanish-speaking nationalities. The wide geographical nature and diverse groups and communities offer a lot of fun activities for travelers.
While they may appear as three countries on the map, you need more than a lifetime to explore everything in this region. Below are three of our favorite things to do in North America.
1. Hunting in Montana
Most people think of sunny beaches, mountains full of snow, road trips, and other common travel activities when touring new destinations. However, most people don’t know that hunting, like hiking or bike riding, can make an amazing traveling experience.
Montana is the fourth-largest U.S state with a superb hunting reputation. The western part of the state has terrific mountain ranges, while the eastern side has prairie land with several isolated parks. All these provide excellent hunting opportunities for avid hunters of wild game meat.
Depending on your location, you can hunt mule deer, pronghorn antelope, Shiras moose, black bear, mountain lions, wolves, bighorn sheep, and more. Even though the best hunting opportunities are from August to November, you can hunt in Montana all year long. Remember to bring with you all your travel necessities, and some good quality Kryptek hunting gear.
2. A Visit to the Grand Canyon
Arizona’s Grand Canyon is a popular tourist destination in North America and is among the top-rated bucket list attractions for many. The destination offers excellent opportunities for hiking, kayaking, white water rafting, and camping along the gorges and ravines of the canyon.
You can experience the ravaging whirlpools created by the turbulent water as you enjoy the canyon’s beauty. The Grand Canyon stretches almost 280 miles, snaking through gorgeous backdrops. Some of the best viewpoints of the Grand Canyon include the Yavapai Observation Station and Mather Point. Sunrise and sunset views of the Grand Canyon also present perfect photo opportunities.
3. Explore the New York City
New York City is among the most top-visited cities on the planet. The city is divided into 5 boroughs: Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx, Staten Island, and Manhattan. Each of the five boroughs has exciting sites and things to do, depending on the season.
In Brooklyn, you can stroll across the Brooklyn Bridge, spend some outdoor time in Prospect Park, visit Coney Island, or reserve a ticket to watch the Nets Game at Barclays Center.
Manhattan boasts lots of famous attractions you’ve surely seen in the movies, including Times Square, Central Park, and the Empire State Building.
If you’re a sports fan, pass through Queens borough and enjoy a tennis game at USTA Billie National Tennis Center or horse racing at Aqueduct Racetrack.
The Bronx and Staten Island are great destinations for history and art lovers.
Of course, there are countless other attractions in North America, including walking on the Glaciers of Alaska, scuba diving in Hawaii, hiking in Yellowstone National Park, visiting Niagara Falls, the Mayan Ruins, or the Las Vegas Strip can make your trip to North America extremely memorable.
