SAMANTHA BROWN’S PLACES TO LOVE
Vancouver, Canada

 

A cosmopolitan city located on the edge of the wilderness, Vancouver offers both natural and urban beauty. On my trip, I trekked through scenic Stanley Park, hopped aboard a floatplane for stunning tour of the city, followed by landing on a mountain lake. Back in the city, just minutes away, I also discovered the unique shops of Granville Market, tasted local salmon at a First Nations restaurant, and so much more. Here’s why Vancouver is a place to love.

SAMANTHA BROWN’S PLACES TO LOVE
Houston, Texas

 

When it comes best destination cities in the US, does Houston make your list? Maybe it should. As one of the largest metropolitan areas in the country, this city offers something for everyone. Not only that, but it’s really become a melting pot of all sorts of different cultures. Throw in a booming art and food scene, and I think Houston just might be a vacation destination that’s hiding in plain sight.
