1. Toronto

If ever a city could be described as a multicultural melting pot, it has to be Toronto – its network of diverse neighborhoods shows off cuisines, languages, and culture from all over the globe.

New York

This epic urban playground is a movie set come to life, and whether you’re skipping down Broadway or taking street art selfies in the Meatpacking District, the Big Apple makes you the star of the show.

Montreal

In Old Montreal, a ride in a horse-drawn cart is a necessity, while the old bookstores and vintage shops of Plateau Mont Royal invite hours of browsing.

Niagara Falls

Rainbows flow out from the mist, the air is full of daredevil tales, and the greatest falls in the northern hemisphere thunder into the chasm.

With a majestic mountain backdrop and a world famous annual stampede, this is Canada’s greatest rodeo city and a perfect springboard to the great Canadian Rockies.

London

You can’t beat the sight of St. Paul’s Cathedral at sunset, or the pomp and ceremony of the changing of the guard for that quintessential London experience.

Everything centers on the Strip, where casino resorts compete to be the most extravagant, with replicas of world monuments and a whole lot of razzle dazzle.

Paris

Against the backdrop of the Louvre, the Pont des Arts bristles with love locks, the Eiffel Tower is a magnet for swooning couples, and the bohemian Left Bank is where would-be poets still wander.

Quebec

Topped by the spires of Chateau Frontenac, the Old Town is a warren of cobbled streets and French-style café culture, and year-round festivities add a true holiday atmosphere.

Banff

The town has a frontier feel to it, and is the gateway to world-class skiing, mountain adventures, and lake excursions in the ethereal Canadian Rockies.

Chicago

Have a riot on Navy Pier, which buzzes with high-octane leisure activities, or take in the panoramic views from the sky deck of the Willis Tower – it’s particularly spectacular at sunset.

San Francisco

When mists roll over the Golden Gate Bridge, it’s a mystical sight, while exuberant family fun can be had on Fisherman’s Wharf, where sea lions flap in the sun.

Rome

Mopeds whiz past the Colosseum and Pantheon, crowds swarm around the Renaissance-era Trevi Fountain, and the whole city feels set for theatrics on a grand scale.

Seattle

Symbolized by its still-futuristic Space Needle tower, Seattle is a city which pushes at the boundaries of rock and electronic music, artisan coffee, and urban design.

Mississauga

The historic district of Port Credit draws locals and visitors alike with its quaint brownstone buildings and lively jazz festivals, while the Mississauga Art Gallery is a top attraction.

Glittering hotel resorts overlook endless stretches of golden beaches, while the surf’s always up. You can party hard after hitting the beach, or go boutique shopping in the Art Deco district.

Boston

The historic district boasts stately red-brick buildings and trees that blaze into color in the fall, while in the restaurants on the waterfront you can tuck into lobster rolls and creamy chowder.

Richmond

Stately Richmond has grand museums dedicated to American history, influences from both north and south, while soul food features big on the city’s menus.

Anaheim

Anaheim centers on the magical Disneyland and you’ll be swept into fantasy lands – though if you do want to get out, the wider Orange County is blessed with beaches and vineyards.

Los Angeles

From the Walk of Fame, crammed with tourists, to the hip hangout of Venice Beach, this is a chameleon of a city with a sheen of glamour, but plenty of hard-working grit.

Canmore

A focal point in the Alberta wilds, outdoor sports fanatics flock here in their droves for Nordic skiing, caving, kayaking, and mountain-biking in sight of the Three Sisters mountains.

New Orleans

There’s a magnetic energy around the bohemian, historic French Quarter which draws people in, particularly to the suitably decadent nightlife core of Bourbon Street.

Amsterdam

Amsterdam is as laid-back and picturesque as it’s possible to be; hop on a bike and explore the canal paths, and pay a visit to the museums, including the emotionally powerful Anne Frank House.

Saskatoon

Hugged by the South Saskatchewan River, Saskatoon is exceptionally photogenic, but its real delights lie in the pioneer-history museums and uber-inventive indie restaurants.

Halifax

Down on the waterfront, there are seafood restaurants and historic treasures spilling from the cheery clapboard buildings, while music festivals and farmers’ markets light up the city’s parks year-round.

Doral

Sun-drenched Doral is one of Florida’s great golfing centers but away from the manicured greens and classy club houses, there are boutique malls and a sizzling Latin American food scene.

Florence

The beautiful Uffizi Gallery contains countless Renaissance treasures, but it is the Florence skyline, dominated by the unmissable Duomo, which is the real masterpiece.

Mont-Tremblant

It may look as pretty as a snow-globe, but Mont-Tremblant is a full-throttle ski resort in Quebec’s Laurentian Mountains, that in summer is transformed for forest adventure and rafting.

Istanbul

Straddling Europe and Asia, Istanbul is an intoxicating blend of East and West, where haunting calls emanate from the city’s minarets while its many mosques are dazzling in their splendor.
