A New York Times article has named Canada the top travel destination in 2017.

Stating, “a northern neighbor is a world to explore” (we’ll forgive their American spelling this time), the Times writes about this year’s 150th birthday celebrations and all the places to check out in Canada.
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.
In addition, The Times mentioned the current exchange rate, offering more bang for the American buck for travellers this year.
“Canada is rolling out the welcome mat,” states the Times. “So 2017 offers an ideal time to go north.”
And we welcome you, America. Just make sure you drop off the Stanley Cup when you come by…
