BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, US
There is no better way to get a sense of the Revolutionary struggle that changed our nation's destiny than with a stroll along Boston's Freedom Trail. Along the way: Paul Revere House, Old North Church, the Old State House and Faneuil Hall, gathering place of the early revolutionaries. Farther afield: Lexington Green, where the minutemen and redcoats first skirmished, and bewitching Salem. Sample shore excursions: Freedom Trail Walking Tour; Lexington & Concord with Harvard Yard; Historic Salem & Seafaring Marblehead.
BAR HARBOR,MAIN, US
Once the exclusive summer resort of America's fabulously wealthy, today Bar Harbor is an artists' enclave and gateway to the rich natural beauty of Acadia National Park, much of which was donated by the Rockefeller family. Watch for white-tail deer and other wildlife and enjoy a horse-drawn carriage ride through the park. Attend an authentic "Downeast" lobster bake. Sample shore excursions: Acadia National Park & Carriage Ride; Coastal Sea Kayaking; The Ultimate Island Experience - A Private Luncheon at Frenchman's Bay.
HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA
For ocean scenery at its best, nothing rivals Nova Scotia's south shore. Here find craggy coastlines, fabled Peggy's Cove, and the striking German village of Lunenburg, so meticulously restored it has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Back in Halifax the ramparts of the Citadel and a museum commemorating the Titanic await your inspection.
A hundred thousand Gaelic welcomes await you in Nova Scotia, Latin for "New Scotland." There are highland villages to visit, the scenic Cabot Trail to explore, golden inland seas to sail and the Fortress of Louisbourg to inspect - where every barn, barracks and pipe and drum corps appears just as it did when King Louis' troops occupied the site in 1744. Sample shore excursions: The Bras d'Or Lakes Grand Tour; Fortress of Louisbourg; Black Gold - Cape Breton Mine Experience.
CHARLOTTETOWN, PRINCE EDWARD
PEI may be Canada s smallest province, but it's big on history and attractions. It is here that the famous Conference of 1864 was held, which resulted in the creation of the Canadian confederacy. Learn all about it on a walking tour of Charlottetown, the provincial capital. Or cast your vote for shopping, a lobster luncheon at Dalvay-by-the-Sea or a tour of the picturesque farm that inspired Anne of Green Gables.
A tree-lined "Champs-Elysées," buttery croissants, the lilt of French, a grand château on the river. Is this Canada, or is it France? It is both - a bastion of French culture in North America where impassioned Québécois hold dear their history, language and culture. Nearby: Montmorency Falls, higher than Niagara. Sample shore excursions: Québec City Walking Tour with Tea at the Château Frontenac; St. Lawrence Grand Tour & Lunch.
MONTREAL, QUEBEC, CA
Part French, part English, totally intriguing. Come early or stay a few extra days after your Holland America cruise. Among Montréal's enticements: the cobblestone streets of the lamp-lit Old City, heavenly Notre-Dame Basilica, endless festivals and street fairs in Place Jacques-Cartier. Sample shore excursion; Province City Tour of Old & New Montréal.
