10 Most Visited Countries in North America

Occupying the northern portion of a landmass commonly referred to as the New World, North America has a unique shape like an upside down triangle. Filled with a strange yet beautiful combination of wilderness, metropolitans, cultural diversities, and deserts, the continent delivers seemingly endless tourism destinations.

Top 10 most visited countries in North America are as follows:

 

1. United States of America

As most people probably expect, the United States is the most visited country in North America. It also stands at the top in terms of international tourism revenue. Tourists from all over the world spend more money in the United States than in any other country. Choices of destinations are limitless in the country from national parks to big cities, from deserts to beaches.

Some of the most popular attractions include:

  • Grand Canyon
  • Yellowstone national Park
  • Las Vegas
  • Rocky Mountains
  • Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park
  • Walt Disney World

Tourism destinations all across the United States are, more often than not, world-class quality. In between every destination, there are road trips along million miles of highways passing deserts, wheat fields, and mountain peaks. It is a country packed with memorable experiences travelers dream about; beaches, redwood forests, great cuisines, developed cities, and nightlife. United States of America is a country of freedom, opportunities, journeys, development, democracies, and of course a fabulous travel destination.

 

2. Mexico

A great number of UNESCO World Heritage sites are located in Mexico. It has a long list of natural reserves, colonial ruins and cities, architectural masterpieces, beach resorts, and cultural festival. The country has been a major tourist destination since the early 19th century, and its reputation in the tourism industry has grown ever since.

Popular attractions in Mexico include:

  • The Pyramids of Teotihuacan
  • Oaxaca City
  • Cabo Pulmo
  • Guanajuato
  • Pacific Coastline

In addition to so many interesting physical locations worth visiting, Mexico has two more attractive features to be proud of: its people and cuisines. It has diverse interesting cultures as a result of combination between city life and indigenous traditions. Regardless of their differences, the people are proud Mexicans who love their country and know how to please visitors. Most Mexicans you’ll come across are courteous and charming at the same time. Mix those with world famous cuisines and endless festivals, then you have a complete one of a kind tourism treat to remember for life.

 

3. Canada

Throughout 2017, Canada is offering free admission to its national historic sites, national parks, and marine conservation areas. Many also consider Canada the best country to visit.

Popular destinations to Canada include:

  • Niagara Falls
  • Haida Gwaii
  • Cabot Trail
  • Nahanni National Park Reserve
  • Manitoulin Island

Not only that Canada is one of the best countries to visit, but it also offers the most livable conditions in terms of job opportunities, business, and investments. Canada has undeniable reputation for its politeness, rapid development, educations, and respect for history. 2017 will be the 150th years of its confederation, and it will be marked with elongated birthday party and more-than welcoming celebrations for international visitors. Another thing to make the visit more enjoyable is the fact that Canadian dollar is relatively weak at the moment, allowing overseas travelers to have a little more to spend in the country. Canada is as much of a cultural melting pot as the US, which means you can also enjoy the treats of cuisine delicacies and cultural festivals.
