Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada » 10 am 5 pm
Sydney, situated on Cape Breton Island's eastern shore, was settled in 1783 by New York and New Hampshire colonists loyal to the British crown and is Nova Scotia's third largest city. The opening of coal mines and a steel plant attracted a large number of Scottish and Eastern European settlers in the early 1800s. The settlers' ethnic legacy has left an indelible imprint and has created a vibrant urban and rural landscape ripe for exploration. Outside Sydney, natural wonders abound. At the Fortress Louisbourg National Historic Park, visitors will step back in time to 1740, when this fortress town was France's North American administrative, military and commercial center. Sydney is also the gateway to the spectacular beauty of the Cape Breton Highlands and the Bras d'Or Lakes, where sailing opportunities flourish. Baddeck, site of Alexander Graham Bell's summer home, is also within easy reach. Whatever your desire, the treasures of northern Nova Scotia will come alive as you delve into this delightful port city.

New York City, New York, USA (overnight) » 12 n  
Welcome to one of the world's most famous and exciting cities. Broadway, Times Square, the Empire State Building and Central Park are just some of the celebrated spectacles this bustling city has to offer. Giovanni da Verrazano was the first European to glimpse Manhattan Island in 1542, but the area was not explored until Henry Hudson arrived in 1609. It is said that Peter Minuit bought the entire island from Native Americans for $24 worth of beads and trinkets in 1629 - the biggest real estate bargain in history. In 1664 the Dutch surrendered to a British Fleet, and the town was renamed New York in honor of the Duke of York. George Washington was inaugurated here in 1789, and for a time, New York served as the country's capital. Since then, the city has grown spectacularly and has become one of the most exciting and electrifying cities in the country - not to mention one of the most rewarding to visit and explore.
