Depends on what you're looking for. The Pacific Northwest region is really nice. Washington State, Vancouver, Calgary. Lovely places, beautiful scenery and friendly people. If I could, I would move out to that region.

I have always wanted to visit america.But it is so vast a country not sure where to start. 

From what I know.

Us brownies live mostly in New york, new jersey, California. So might want to start there. 

Also some great places I have heard of are the sea side areas such as florida. 

Whats springs to mind is 

San fransisco, grand canyon. You can travel by coach or train or fligh if its over a 8 hour journey.

USA arguably has more to see. But, Canada is safer. BC has quite a bit to see. Ontario too with Toronto, Niagara Falls, and Ottawa. Alberta has Banff. Really that's about it.

You're not visiting relatives? You're just visting "North America" generically?

In that case, there's definitely more stuff to see in America, simply because America is 10X bigger in the parts of the country worth seeing. Yes, Canada has more area, but do you really want to see swathes of tundra?

I would agree with @KhoonKaBadlaKhoon that Canada is safer (especially for kesadhari Sikhs), but it's not like you'll be killed just stepping off the plane in the US, either. If you're a single male keshadhari, I'd be cautious.

I have relatives in Toronto, Canada. So might be visiting them. Otherwise it’s too expensive staying in a hotel.

Well, then, there's your answer. Stay with your relatives. Visit tourist areas of Toronto, visit the CN Tower.

Then do some smaller trips, if you want, just 1-night stays in hotels, or Gurdwaras, if you can arrange a room in advance. Visit the capital of Canada. Then visit BC (a longer trip), and its capital and landscape. Possibly historic gurdwaras of BC. And a visit to Niagra Falls, and New York City, which is relatively close to Toronto.

I have visited California, and felt safe there at all times. I would recommend it.

I noted that you'll not be killed just as you step off the plane. The point is that Canada is safer than the US. Granted, 99.9% of the time, you'll be OK. It's just that people should not be complacent.

On the matter, of California, that's where:

A young Sikh gas station attendant was gunned down

Two elderly Sikh men, 65 and 78, were killed walking

68 yr old Sikh found dead

Sikh man beaten up and hair cut

Another 68 yr old Sikh beaten up severely, and Gurdwara defaced

And an 82 yr old attacked in Fresno in 2013, outside a Gurdwara

 

So please don't make Sikhs think they're absolutely safe in California. They're not.

You're right. Except that the OP has belatedly stated that it'll be too expensive for him to stay in hotels. So he's down to just staying with his relatives in Toronto.

Ever heard of making money while on holiday. Plenty of work opportunities to make some extra income.

    • Guru Nanak Dev Ji's Parkash is disputed between 3 Dates Friday, Katak Sudi 15 Pooranmashi, 1526 Bikrami (Lunar) Saturday, Vaisakh Sudi 3, 1526 Bikrami (Lunar) (Not Pooranmashi) Monday, 1 Vaisakh, 1526 Bikrami (Solar Date) (Also Pooranmashi) There is debate on this issue, I recommend reading the document mentioned in the OP. Also PLS, Benti for everyone, when referring to Gurpuabs, pls use Bikrami or Mool Nanakshahi dates, don't use English dates as they are not accurate as the original.
    • Serious question though, how would one use a Dori Kirpan practically? Like how would it be used? I think thats why some people say its just for show because maybe you can't use it well? I wouldn't know.
    • Sometimes we use the phrase "Just do it" in the Dojo. Other times we say "Shut up and train".  Heh. 
    • Exactly. Oh, so it's not a made-up saakhi? Even if it were, it would be good. It sounds vaguely like the saakhi of Bhai Banno. I agree that it is unreasonable to demand discounts of shopkeepers because "it's for a religious purpose". They can't verify that. You're trading on your long beard to make the other guy think you're "religious". You're just setting it up for unscrupulous people with beards to come by and abuse it, which then gets found out, and then people lose faith in Sikhs and Sikhi. On the other hand, it would be OK for a gurdwara to put out the call for construction materials, legal services, accounting services, medical services (free medical camps). Then people can verify it's for a religious purpose because they're giving directly to the gurdwara. And then sawmill owners can drop off wood at the gurdwara, marble showroom owners can drop off marble, etc. Or people in fields not in demand can buy the stuff (possibly at cost) and have it delivered to the gurdwara.
