From remote surf towns to fern-covered canyons and massive glaciers, here are some of the most incredible sights the U.S. and Canada have to offer.
Have you ever dreamed of packing up and road tripping for months on end?
Nick Paquette, a freelance video editor, did just that last year. He embarked on a road trip across North America and drove over 21,700 miles in six months, discovering some of Canada and America’s most scenic attractions on the journey.
Paquette and his girlfriend originally decided to take the trip as a way to explore their homeland Canada and later extended the trip to include the U.S.
The couple purchased a Ford Econoline E150 from a used car dealership for around $5,000 and converted it into a makeshift home, choosing to do the trip by car so they would have the freedom to venture anywhere they chose over the next six months.
The duo explored everything from remote surf towns and tranquil campgrounds to adventure-packed caves, sharing the must-see locations with Travel + Leisure. From emerald-colored lakes to valleys blanketed in golden trees, here are the top North American destinations Paquette says you won’t want to miss when taking your own journey.
