Driving Holidays in North America - October 2013
North America is a continent tailor-made for a driving holiday. Its tourism infrastructure – from hotels to highways – grew up around the development of the automobile and for those who like exploring a country on four wheels, it is the ultimate destination.
Canada and the US have modern highways and a network of scenic back roads that give easy access to a multitude of widely differing tourist attractions – from wineries to theme parks to ‘living history’ museums evoking the early days of the automobile. Bustling, cosmopolitan cities link ever-changing landscapes – from the vast, open spaces of the American and Canadian west, to the beachside resorts of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.
The US alone ranks as one of the most visited destinations in the world, second only to France. In 2012, according to the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), it registered 67 million international tourist arrivals. Of those, 34% were Canadians. Canada too ranks as one of the world’s leading destinations. In 2012, it attracted 16 million foreign visitors – 11.9 million of whom were Americans, according to the Canadian Tourism Commission (CTC).
