July 26: This morning we cross the border in New Brunswick and travel up the scenic coast to the mouth of the Bay of Fundy and the island that captured the heart of FDR, Campobello Island. A quaint retreat with miles of beaches, we’ll visit the Roosevelt’s summer “cottage” and then it’s onto St. John, New Brunswick where a lovely “Maritime Buffet” awaits us. (B, D)

July 27: Today we will take a short trip out to see the Reversing Falls area and then board the MV Princess of Acadia for a relaxing, vista-filled 3-hour ferry ride to Digby, NS (yes, the coach goes along, too!). After docking, we begin our Nova Scotia experience as we make our way to Nova Scotia’s capital city of Halifax where you’ll fall in love with this area. Our home for the next two nights is the beautiful Delta Barrington in the heart of city centre. You’ll have easy access to Casino Nova Scotia and the exciting waterfront area where good times await at the many historic pubs filled with loud east coast music and a fun-loving maritime atmosphere.

July 28: We’ll tour the city with a professional guide to see all the highlights of Halifax, one of the most captivating cities in North America. Some much-desired free time to explore will follow, and then…”Ahoy, Mateys” as we board the adventure-filled amphibious “Harbor Hopper”, the most popular tour in Atlantic Canada! Later, bask in true beauty as we drive the scenic trail to picturesque “Peggy’s Cove” (of postcard fame) with a special dinner at famous Sou’ Wester right on the Cove. (D)

July 29: The renowned Citadel Fortress is our first stop today for an interesting tour and fantastic view of the city. Then we depart for Cape Breton, N.S., and a two-night stay in quaint Baddeck at the Inverary Resort Inn. You will enjoy our lovely 11-acre resort on the shores of the glorious Brasd’Or Lakes. On the way into town, we’ll make a stop at the Alexander Graham Bell Museum. Then a choice-of-menu dinner is included tonight. A magnificently beautiful day in every way! (D)

July 30: We begin our wonderful Cabot Trail Adventure this morning! A stop at the Gaelic College, and then we’ll be on the famous "Trail".

There will be picture stops along the way and dinner awaits back at the resort. (B, L, D)

July 31:  Rise and shine as we depart for our next adventure, Prince Edward Island. After a short ferryboat ride and scenic drive, we arrive in Charlottetown, the heart of the Island.
