Alberta is one of Canada’s leading provinces for outdoor adventures. Many of the local ski resorts, such as Lake Louise, Hidden Valley and Marmot Basin, become very active during the winter when the abundant snowfall creates ideal ski conditions. During the spring and summer months, the hiking trails that run through Banff National Park and other outdoor spaces in Alberta offer great opportunities to see wildlife along with some of the province’s most exquisite natural features.
New York City
The COVID-19 pandemic has been especially hard on New York’s economy, and a visit to the city can help the Big Apple bounce back stronger than ever.

Visiting any of these places can provide any traveler with a worthwhile experience. With all of the travel restrictions that were put in place throughout 2020, 2021 should be a great year to start traveling again.
