  • Exploring the charm of the Shore Shore through the towns of Chester, Mahone Bay, and the UNESCO site of Lunenburg;
  • Viewing Tall Ships such as the Bluenose II;
  • Time to explore various historical sites, museums, and parks through both provinces in areas such as Halifax, Louisbourg, Sydney, and Charlottetown;
  • Driving the Cabot Trail and spending time in the Highlands;
