About North America

North America, in particular Canada, has stolen a piece of my heart. From road trips through British Columbia to my ongoing love for Burning Man in Nevada, USA, North America really keeps on giving.
There are so many things to do in Canada, for example, canoeing on Lake Louiseroad tripping through the Rockies, and spending summer on Vancouver Island. My favourite places to visit in Canada include Banff National ParkJasper National Park and Vancouver.
The USA is insane, too, and there are loads of things to do in the USA. As well as Burning Man in Nevadathe USA has loads of National Parks to explore and countless cities for you to enjoy the hustle and bustle. Some of the best places to visit in the USA include San FranciscoLas Vegas, Los Angeles and New York. 
Want to know the best places to visit in North America and get top tips for travelling in North America? Wondering how to plan Burning Man or how to save money on your Canadian road trip? Grab a notepad and pen and tuck into my South America travel guides below to get the inspiration flowing for your adventure.

The best time to visit North America really depends on what you want out of your trip. For snow adventures and skiing trips in the mountains, then you want to visit between December and March. For city breaks, beach trips, and warmer weather, the rest of the year is best.

Shoulder season in North America is typically spring (March-April) and fall (September-November) so this is the best time to visit North America if you’re looking for smaller crowds and cooler (but still sunny) weather.

My favourite place in the world is Vancouver, it’s somewhere I hope I end up living. From there you have easy access to the Rockies, California, Vancouver Island and more. It’s an outdoor lovers dream. You can climb, ski, dive, surf, hike and get your dose of cosmopolitan city life all in easy reach. See my top things to do in Canada here.

Then there’s Burning Man which I hope you get to experience at least once in your life. North America is the home of road trips for me. I’ve done (and recommend) a road trip in Arizona, on the Californian coastline, through the Canadian rockies and Nevada.
