Canada makes it to the top ten of yet another world ranking, and this time, it's for perhaps the most important quality ever: hipsterness.
Nat Geo Traveller recently came out with The Cool List: 17 for 2017, which ranked countries based on "culture capitals, hipster hotspots, wild escapes and places generally keeping it cool in 2017." Canada landed in the 7th spot overall, ahead of Portland, Oregon and just behind Aarhus:
- Portland, Oregon
- South Africa
- New Zealand
Here's what they had to say about Canada:
2017 is a hugely symbolic year for Canada — it’s the 150th anniversary of the Confederation, with celebrations including a tall ships fleet sailing along the coast in July, and summer-long events in Charlottetown, where the movement started. But this is a year of openings as well as commemoration — from the zip-line along the gorge edge at Niagara Falls to a ‘seafood trail’ launching in Nova Scotia, and a new UNESCO World Heritage Site in Labrador, Mistaken Point. Add in free national park entry all year, Montréal’s 375th anniversary and the Invictus Games taking place in Toronto in September and it’s clear there’s never been a better time to go.
