North America & The Caribbean
The American Dream is not just a goal for personal success, but to so many visitors, both from within the United States and abroad, it is the dream of visiting the America of the movies, the golden age of jazz, of legendary friendliness, towering cities and geographical marvels. The first glimpse of Manhattan from a cruise ship or an aircraft is breathtaking! The truly beautiful Chrysler Building glinting in the sunlight, the sparkling Hudson river and the iconic Statue of Liberty, has even the most world weary travellers staring in wonder. Chicago, the quintessential American city, strutting its awesome architecture along the river and waterfront, is surely one of the world’s friendliest. Spring in Washington DC at cherry blossom time is the best time to wander through the historic buildings and galleries. Los Angeles, home to movie stars and dreams, New Orleans, lying at the mouth of the great Mississippi River, steeped in legends of showboats and jazz, and San Francisco, the elegant city by the bay, all offer the unique diversity of this extraordinary country. There is no terrain, sport or climate that is not available in the United States. Skiing in Colorado, speedboat racing on the Columbia River, hiking through the Tetons, riding under the towering red peaks of Arizona, or surfing the high waves of the Pacific Ocean, America has it all!
Canada, the second largest country on earth, spreads its beauty from the windswept cliffs on the Atlantic coast, through the great lakes of Ontario, past the vast prairies of Alberta and Saskatchewan, over the Rocky Mountains to the wine country of British Columbia and the pacific ocean. Canadians love their outdoor sports, and skating on the frozen Rideau Canal in the capital city of Ottawa, or skiing in the mountains from the Laurentians in Quebec to the Rockies in Whistler are all greatly
popular and visitors are enthusiastically welcomed to enjoy the gorgeous winter playgrounds and resorts. Toronto is one of North America’s leading cities in the Arts, with world famous ballet and opera companies, museums, film and jazz festivals that attract visitors from all over the world. French speaking Montreal is like a taste of Europe and Vancouver is the northern city by the bay, set on the Pacific Ocean under the snow capped Rocky Mountains.
Mexico ushers in images of bright colours, guitars, warm nights and delicious food. The history of this fascinating country is deeply embedded in the architecture, language and customs. Long a popular destination for ‘snow birds’, Mexico offers gorgeous beaches and spectacular resorts.
The islands of the Caribbean mean vacation time! The music and soft-spoken people all help to slow down time itself and relaxation becomes inevitable. It is not surprising that the jet setters of the world come here for their vacations, but there is something for everyone in the choice of islands, resorts, villas and hotels.
America, Canada, Mexico and The Caribbean – all await with a thousand different ways to enjoy your vacation. Pick your dream and Greaves will make it real….. at least for your vacation!
