VIEW THE JOURNEY
Boston to Montreal
Quebec’s French-flavored history, Prince Edward Island’s anachronistic charm, the fusion of Acadian and Scottish cultures in Nova Scotia—each province distills its own blend of Old World and New, bucolic and urbane. Browse the shops and boulangeries along Quebec City’s picturesque Petit Champlain, the oldest street in North America. Fall under the spell of Charlottetown and Gaspe with their bright red covered bridges and Anne of Green Gables vibe, and Halifax with its lively pub culture and majestic Citadel.

Day 1: Boston
Founded in 1630 by Puritan settlers, Boston is one of the oldest cities in the U.S. It was a pivotal place during the American Revolution for the Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party, the Battle of Bunker Hill and the Siege of Boston. Tourists to Boston see the Faneuil Hall Marketplace, the JFK Library and Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, the New England Aquarium, and the USS Constitution.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 2: Portland
The New England charm of Portland is a delightful mix of stylish and sophisticated, modest and folksy, with a reputation for great dining. There is a plethora of local art and music, lovely parks and a pleasing array of 19th century architecture including beautiful Victorian-era homes. The cobblestone lanes of the Old Port district waterfront are alive with working fishing piers and warehouses converted into shops and restaurants.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 3: Bar Harbor
One of the best places to appreciate nature is found at Bar Harbor, with its stunning coastal beauty. Surrounded by Acadia National Park, with over 50 square miles of mountains, lakes, forests, soaring granite cliffs and amazing views, Bar Harbor’s laid-back atmosphere encourages relaxation and repose. Bar Harbor was the premier summer resort of the 19th century for some of America’s most powerful families like the Vanderbilts and the Rockefellers until the destructive 1947 fire. Visit the Abbe Museum, which showcases the Wabanaki Indians, the Dorr Museums of Natural History or the Bar Harbor Historical Society Museum.

Day 4: Lunenburg
This UNESCO site with narrow streets and interesting architecture, Lunenburg has a long and proud seafaring history and a picturesque waterfront. Seventy percent of the original buildings from the 18t and 19th centuries are in use today. This walking town has everything centrally located and has turned into a haven for many artists because of its natural beauty.

Day 5: Halifax
The capital of Nova Scotia was ranked the 4th best place to live in Canada back in 2012. It is a city with more pubs and clubs per capita than any other Canadian city and even one of the mayors was a brewmaster. The boardwalk on the waterfront follows the water’s edge and is lined with unique shops. Halifax is home to the longest running saltwater ferry and a 200-year-old restored fishing village. Be sure to find time to try fabled donair (pita, meat and sauce), the official food of Halifax.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 6: Louisbourg
First occupied by the Mi’kmaw people, Louisbourg sits on the rocky shoreline of Cape Breton. This modern town has an impressive fortress, interesting walking trails, and fishing wharves bringing in amazing fresh seafood. In this beautiful setting sites to see include the winding Havenside Road, Lighthouse Point, the beaches of Kennington Cove and the Sydney & Louisburg Railway Museum.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 7: Cap aux Meules
With its village main street and many restaurants and bars, charming Cap aux Meules is the gateway to the Magdalen Islands Archipelago located in the middle of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The port bustles with fishing boats, ferries, and a well-equipped marina offering a huge travel lift crane for dry dock. Sites to see include the church of St. Pierre, constructed from the wreckage of ships and the lighthouse which now warns of the offshore shoals.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 8: Gaspe
Four hundred miles northeast of Quebec City lies Gaspe, one of National Geographic’s Canada’s 50 Places of a Lifetime. This wonderful wilderness area is home to four national parks; Perce Rock; North America’s largest gannet colony; lighthouses and remarkable historic sites. Visit the modern cathedral built almost entirely of wood and make sure to try some of the local specialties such as French-styled lobsters and game.
