While traveling is always a subjective experience, every city has an essence or story waiting to be discovered. The list of featured cities is narrowed to twenty locations in Canada, the US and Europe. Many more cities could be included but for the sake of brevity, it is down to twenty. Please note that Montreal, New York City, Paris and London were intentionally excluded from the list.
All cities are unique because they arise from history, sociology, economy and culture which all tie together. For this reason, no city is actually “superior” to another. Architecture, cleanliness, friendliness, history and general standards of living usually make for a popular tourist destination although historical appeal plays a big part. While some cities may be “overrated” or “underrated”, some or all of the following locations should be visited at least once.
1. Quebec City
4. San Francisco
5. New Orleans
