NEW Undiscovered North America Tours Explore Hidden Treasures & Historic Paths

TORONTO, Ontario – June 23, 2020 – Bucket list vacations don’t always require a passport or a trip across international waters. In 2021, Globus and Cosmos are inviting travellers to fetch a pail of wonder and discover the undiscovered closer to home with a NEW series of “Undiscovered” tours through North America. On each of the nine (9) “Undiscovered North America” vacations, travellers are invited to trade overcrowded cities for smaller, crowd-pleasing experiences across the United States and Canada for a great game of hide-and-seek, uncovering hidden treasures and historic paths in our own backyard.

Here are eight (8) inspiring experiences that will encourage travellers to write home about home:
