This week we want to think about travel, and showcase the many great reason’s for visiting the USA and Canada. There are so many reasons for you to visit Canada or the United States such as you can visit all the different amusement parks or go sightseeing, you can even do some amazing activities such as kayaking and rafting or hiking; these are great places for family holidays that are extra special. Just a few of the things that you could do in the US include visiting the Statue of Liberty, going to the universal islands of adventure and visiting Alcatraz Island. Then some of the places in Canada you could visit would include La Ronde which is the six flags amusement park, Georgian Bay and the Canadian Rockies. These are great places to go sightseeing and ride all the different rollercoaster’s. The best thing is that you’ll never be bored because there’s so much to do.
You could go to Smoky Mountain Outdoors in the US; this is a mixture of rafting and kayak excursions on the pigeon river during the warm season; although this does rely upon the water flow condition. They have friendly and helpful staff that is very easy to talk to, so you don’t have to worry about being nervous. You have the choice of upper or lower pigeon rafting or even upper pigeon extreme. You can even hike and paddle or choose the zip line and rafting combo. You could also visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter especially if you’re a big Harry Potter fan, which has some amazing rides in the Islands of Adventure and the Universal Studios Florida. At the Royal Tyrell’s museum of paleontology you can view the collection of more than 130,000 fossils. They also have interactive exhibits to make things more fun for younger ones and lots of skeletal models, this means you can see lots of different prehistoric creatures; to make it even better it’s very informative and knowledgeable so it’s fun and educational. Canada’s wonderland is a shocking 330 acre theme park; some of its fantastic rides would have to include flight deck, dragon fire and vortex.
Now there is also the USA ESTA which is part of the visa waiver program. This is valid for 2 years or until your passport runs out. Canada have now started with an electronic travel authorization, the Canada ETA -this is valid 5 years or until your passport runs out and can be used as much as you want whilst it’s valid. This is generally improved immediately to avoid any inconvenience. To apply all you need to do is fill in a form online and submit a payment. This then needs to be printed ready for boarding your flight.
