Day-to-Day Itinerary

Day 1 - Boston, MA

History blends with modern life in the iconic city of Boston, MA. As one of the oldest cities in America, Boston is testament to the earliest days when American revolutionaries seized control from Great Britain. As the center of the main events leading up to the Civil War, Boston’s story is a fascinating look into one of the core peices of American history.

Day 2 - Portland, ME

Overlooking Casco Bay, Portland is home to a wealth of historical and architectural masterpieces. The area combines the diverse cultural offerings of a major metropolitan area with a charming small-town flavor. From classical to cutting edge, performance and visual arts are vibrantly alive in the city and infuse the region with a surprising sophistication. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow immortalized Portland. “Often,” he wrote in My Lost Youth, “I think of the beautiful town that is seated by the sea …”

Day 3 - Bar Harbor, ME

Nestled on the east side of Mt. Desert Island, Bar Harbor has welcomed visitors for over 100 years. Explore Mt. Desert Street, a national historic district, and be amazed by the beauty of the homes of the rich and famous. Join a shore excursion to Acadia National Park and witness breathtaking vistas and abundant wildlife in an unspoiled habitat. Later, admire the working waterfront which marks the beginning of the Shore Path, an enticing stroll along the front lawns of some of Bar Harbor’s biggest “cottages.”

Day 4 - Eastport, ME

Discover Eastport at the northern end of the coast- just across the bay from New Brunswick. Eastport has a lot to offer visitors, with places and activities to appeal to history buffs, painters, whale-watchers, and families who want a great holiday in beautiful surroundings. Water Street boasts a variety of shopping to suit all tastes and budgets. The walkable downtown includes 29 buildings on the National Historic Register with the unique architecture making a nice contrast with the breathtaking vistas of sea and islands.

Day 5 - Yarmouth, NS

Formerly a prosperous and wealthy lobster fishing town, Yarmouth has an extremely proud history and has gone to great lengths to preserve it’s many links to the past. A majority of the streets in the town has at least one historic landmark on it, including two historic warehouses surviving from the sailing era, old fountains built in the 1800′s, and statues commemerating events as early as the town’s founding. Additionally, Yarmouth is known for some of the most exuberant examples of Victorian houses styles in the Maritimes, a legacy of the wealthy captains and ship-owners of the town’s seafaring Golden Age. A heritage district preserves several blocks of these residences including the Lovitt House and Hatfield House, as well as around 30 more homes that each showcase a style of architecture now seldom-seen.

Day 6 - Shelburne, NS

Shelburne offers much to her visitors, including museums, parks, nationally recognized restaurants and galleries, and craft shops. The waterfront Heritage District retains an aura of the 18th century. Visit the Ross-Thompson House, which has the oldest restored store in North America; the Shelburne County Museum, which has the oldest fire pumper in North America; and the Dory Shop, where the art of dory-making is demonstrated each day during the summer.

Day 7 - Boston, MA

End your trip back in beautiful Boston, where you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy plenty of historical sites on Boston’s Freedom Trail, a red brick road that travels to all of the important places of Bostonian history.
