Nova Scotia’s exquisitely preserved capital city was founded in 1749; go back in time with a visit to The Citadel to see the Old Town Clock. Waterfront warehouses known as the Historic Properties harken back to Halifax’s bygone days as a trading hub for privateer ships commissioned by governments to pillage, steal and burn merchant vessels.

Day 12

Portland (11:00 AM – 8:00 PM)

Famous for its picture-perfect lighthouses, delightful historic district, world-class museums, and a thriving culinary and craft beer scene, Maine’s largest city is a definite contender for America’s coolest port town. The red brick buildings of the historic Old Port district house many of Portland’s best restaurants, where you can try everything from highly experimental fine dining, to humble pub grub, to the simple, perfect lobster roll—a beloved local specialty. Take a stroll along the waterfront to enjoy gorgeous views of Casco Bay, and ask anyone you see in bright orange overalls how the lobster pots are doing. Say hello to bigfoot and learn all about the Mongolian Death Worm at the International Cryptozoology Museum. Finally, Portland Headlight is always worth a stop. It’s Maine’s oldest operating lighthouse and one of our country’s prettiest.

Day 13

Bar Harbor (8:00 AM – 5:00 PM)

Bar Harbor has retained much of its charm from the glory days of the 1900s when it became a popular vacation destination for America’s richest and most powerful families.
