Top Islands : Cape Breton & Vancouver
Two Canadian islands made it in Travel + Leisure magazine's 2008 World’s Best Awards. The Top 5 Islands in the Continental U.S. and Canada include (in ranking order) Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia; Vancouver Island, British Columbia; Mount Desert Island, Maine; San Juan Islands, Washington State; and Cumberland Island, Georgia.
The rankings are the result of Travel + Leisure’s 13th annual survey of readers’ favorites. Criteria for judging islands included natural attractions, activities and sights, restaurants and food, people and value.
The awards are featured in the August issue of the magazine, available on newsstands now.
