The U.S.' biggest trading partner, and the nation closest to the United States in nearly all senses has the embassy closest to the U.S. government, right on Pennsylvania Ave. The building is a striking, contemporary masterpiece, helping Vancouverite architect Arthur Erickson win some prestigious awards. Look for the small dome and columns incorporated into the exterior (in part designed as a gentle mockery of the neoclassical imperial style prevalent around the Capitol), which serves as an echo chamber of sorts, where you'll have any sounds directed right back at you from the dome.
