Day 6 | September 18 | Prince Edward Island

While Prince Edward Island is Canada’s smallest providence in terms of area and population, it more than makes up for this with the friendliness of its people, its natural beauty, and for being known as the birthplace of Canada. The island’s landscape is dramatic and features rolling hills, pristine forests, reddish-white sand beaches, ocean coves and the famous red soil. One certainly cannot think about Prince Edward Island without mentioning the author Lucy Maud Montgomery who once lived on PEI and drew inspiration from the land during the late Victorian Era for the setting of her classic novel “Anne of Green Gables.” Optional excursions available for purchase or explore on your own.

The capital of Nova Scotia and the largest city in Canada’s Atlantic Provinces, Halifax was once Great Britain’s major military bastion in North America. The beautifully restored waterfront buildings of Halifax’s Historic Properties recall the city’s centuries-old maritime heritage. Stroll the waterfront, and you may find Nova Scotia’s floating ambassador, the schooner Bluenose II, tied up to Privateer’s Wharf, just as old sailing ships have done for over 200 years. Halifax is also the gateway to Nova Scotia’s stunning scenery, including famous Peggy’s Cove, where surf-pounded granite cliffs and a solitary lighthouse create an unsurpassed scene of rugged natural beauty. Optional excursions available for purchase or explore on your own.

Day 9 | September 21 | Bar Harbor, Maine

Standing atop Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park, it is easy to see why individuals like John D. Rockefeller felt so strongly about preserving this area’s natural beauty. The wealthy flocked to Bar Harbor at the turn of the century, building Newport-style “cottages” that turned the quaint New England town into a fashionable summer resort. It was the efforts of these wealthy vacationers, including John D. Rockefeller, which led President Woodrow Wilson to establish Acadia as the first national park east of the Mississippi. Acadia National Park is one of the most visited national parks in America and is studded with natural wonders and 50 species of mammals.

Day 10 | September 22 | Boston, Massachusetts

Hailed as the “Cradle of American Independence,” Boston is considered to be America’s first great city. Combining historic districts with revitalized urban centers while remaining faithful to its venerable roots, it is a city every American should visit at least once. Follow the Freedom Trail along three of the most historic miles in the country. See the site of the Boston Tea Party, trace the route of Paul Revere’s famous ride, and stand on the bridge where Minutemen fired “the shot heard ‘round the world.” In the old Charlestown Navy Yard you can see the USS Constitution, the nation’s oldest commissioned warship.
