Whale-watch at Digby Neck on the Bay of Fundy. Attend a Tauck Exclusive private dinner and tour at the Halifax Citadel, and a private reception and dinner at Pier 21 National Historic Site. Choose a walking tour of historic Lunenburg or a visit to a fisheries museum, watch history come alive at the Habitation at Port-Royal and tour the P.E.I. farmhouse where the popular novel Anne of Green Gables was set.
Halifax (Nova Scotia)
Halifax is Atlantic Canada’s center of business, research and education. Strong emphasis is placed on cultural diversity, historic restorations and the preservation of heritage and culture. The Halifax Citadel Fortress dominates downtown Halifax. Take a stroll along the waterfront past restored buildings and warehouses of Historic Properties, or a walk in delightful Public Gardens, the oldest Victorian gardens in North America. Halifax’s sister city of Dartmouth lies on the opposite shore and is reached via the oldest saltwater ferry in North America. The spectacular view of Halifax harbor makes the trip worthwhile. Housed in former Dominion Building, the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia features Nova Scotia folk art and maritime artists. A two-hour walk will easily show you the major highlights of historic and scenic Halifax. Visit Historic Properties, St. Paul’s Church and Province House, the latter two being the oldest buildings in the city. Granite Springs is rated one of the finest 18-hole golf courses in Atlantic Canada.
Charlottetown, with a population of nearly 40,000, is the island’s capital
and one of Canada’s oldest towns. Established in 1765 by Capt. Samuel Holland,
the settlement was named for Queen Charlotte, wife of King George III of England.
The old part of town offers many historical monuments, including important government
buildings, churches, old mansions and museums, along with parks and gardens.
Outside of Charlottetown, discover miles of farmland, small villages, a scenic
coast and the legacy of Lucy Maud Montgomery, author of Anne of Green Gables,
the feature of Charlottetown’s annual major theater festival.
Digby, the most romantic place in Canada, is also home to the world’s largest inshore scallop fleets. Water Street is lined with many wonderful shops and restaurants and offers spectacular view of Annapolis Basin and the famous Scallop Fleet. In August, be sure not to miss Digby Scallop Days – when the town celebrates its way of life and dependence on the sea with an amazing festival. Stop in the Admiral Digby Museum to learn about town history. Other popular attractions are the Trinity Anglican Church, built in 1785 and the only church in Canada to be built by shipwrights. There is also the Old Loyalist Cemetery, the Fisherman’s Memorial and the Soldier’s Cenotaph, a monument constructed in 1921 to honor those who died serving Canada during World War I, II and the Korean War. Two places perfect for gazing out at sea are the Admiral’s Walk/Loyalist Park and Point Prim Lighthouse. The lighthouse, one of the first in Nova Scotia, is set high on cliffs overlooking the mighty Bay of Fundy.
