  2. BOSTON-PORTLAND-BAR HARBOUR.
    From Massachusetts, head north via New Hampshire's shoreline and along Maine's rocky coast to Portland, one of New England's most famous cities. Stroll down the cobblestone streets of Portland's famous Old Port Exchange, lined with many boutiques, coffee houses, and art galleries. Spend the night in Bar Harbour, Maine's oldest summer resort. Your dinner this evening is a typical LOBSTER BAKE featuring Maine lobster, steamed mussels, and delicious corn-on-the-cob. (B,D)

  3. BAR HARBOUR-ACADIA NATIONAL PARK-ST. ANDREWS BY-THE-SEA.
    Nowhere along the Atlantic seaboard is the rock-bound coast as picturesque as in ACADIA NATIONAL PARK, one of America's most visited national parks. Take the scenic park road and enjoy the spectacular panorama from the summit of Cadillac Mountain, the first place in the continental United States to see the sunrise. After time at leisure in Bar Harbour, travel across the border to lovely St. Andrews By-the-Sea. Tonight, stay at the Algonquin Resort, which overlooks historic Passamaquoddy Bay. This evening, choose from the many fine specialty restaurants this quaint seaside community has to offer. (B)

    This morning, follow the coast to Saint John and board a catamaran FERRY to Digby, a popular summer resort. Your hotel tonight is the Digby Pines Resort, a world of casual elegance in the tradition of the grand hotels. Surrounded by breathtaking beauty, you will have an opportunity to enjoy the views, recreation, and internationally renowned cuisine in this Norman-style chateau. Before dinner this evening, enjoy a private DEMONSTRATION by a local fisherman who will explain the importance of the Digby scallop and introduce you to Nova Scotian music. Later, dinner is included at the resort. (B,D)

  5. DIGBY-LUNENBURG-PEGGY'S COVE-HALIFAX.
    Today, travel toward Nova Scotia's Atlantic coast and follow the winding shoreline to Lunenburg, one of the continent's major fishing ports and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

End in Halifax, the provincial capital and your home for the next two nights. (B)

  6. HALIFAX.
    Your city sightseeing tour with a Local Guide this morning includes a visit to CITADEL HILL with its early 19th-century star-shaped fort; the tree-shaded walks of the public gardens; and the harbour area, which evokes the port's former strategic importance.
