In case you missed it: New York Times has named Canada the #1 place to visit in 2017.

The scope of the recommendation to visit Canada is wide, citing our national parks, natural wonders, and events in celebration of the country’s 150th birthday.

The article, dubbed “52 Places to Go in 2017,” states Canada is “a world unto itself, with cosmopolitan cities, barely explored natural wonders and everything in between.”

It’s also great to see New Times make mention of this year’s 150th birthday celebrations and all the places to check out in Canada.

“Canada is rolling out the welcome mat,” states the New York Times. “So 2017 offers an ideal time to go north.”

“All of the country’s more than 200 national parks and historic sites are offering free admission through the year, from the turquoise lakes and mountain peaks of Banff in Alberta to the rolling dunes and red sandstone cliffs of Prince Edward Island along the Atlantic Coast to the newest reserve, the glacial-rounded Mealy Mountains in Labrador.”

The Times also mentioned the current exchange rate, offering more bang for the American buck for travellers this year.

In the New York Times’ 2017 rankings, the Atacama Desert in Chile came second, and Agra, India, ranked third.
