Montréal, P.Q., Canada (overnight) »   Embark pm
Cosmopolitan Montréal is Canada's second-largest city and cultural capital. It is the third-largest French-speaking city in the world and has been dubbed the "Paris of the North."

Cultural contrasts are widespread as, although Montréal is predominantly French in culture, ethnic diversity abounds.

This is a city of great charm, as you'll discover in its sympathetic blend of the old and the new, from the Place d'Armes and its beautiful 18th-century buildings to the ultra-modern downtown area.

Montréal received international acclaim when it hosted Expo `67 and the 1976 Summer Olympic Games. Its exuberant vitality promises to keep it at the forefront of great world cities well into this century and beyond.

Oct 5, Saturday
Québec City, P.Q., Canada » 8 am 7 pm
Québec stands proudly beside the majestic St. Lawrence River, resembling no other city in the world. Its cuisine, language and traditions combine to make this a unique cradle of French civilization in North America. Within fortress walls high atop Cap Diamant, the old city is a sheer delight for lovers of history. Here, magnificent churches, cobbled streets, fragrant gardens and chic boutiques all vie for your attention. Just outside the city, you'll discover a veritable riot of fall colors, North America's largest shrine, picturesque villages and an impressive waterfall. At the end of the day, there is the tempting opportunity to discover the French art of good cooking at some of North America's finest restaurants.
Oct 6, Sunday
Saguenay, P.Q., Canada » 8 am 1 pm

Pronounced “Sag-uh-nay,” this city located about 120 miles north of Quebec might also be called “beautiful,” as it sits on the Saguenay River and offers access to some of the most glorious scenery of North America. The Saguenay River fjord, carved by glaciers eons ago and discovered by Jacques Cartier in 1535, is tremendously deep in places—up to 900 feet—and has relatively warm waters that nourish massive quantities of krill, a favorite food for whales. During your visit, not only are you likely to spot a whale or two, but you will have the chance to appreciate the many faces of the Saguenay region, including majestic cliffs, quaint hamlets, dense forest, agricultural lands and lively city districts.

Oct 7, Monday
  Havre-Saint-Pierre, P.Q., Canada » 9 am 6 pm

For uniquely beautiful scenery, including a marvelous collection of limestone monoliths carved by sea and time, the north shore of the Saint Lawrence River stands alone. Here you will find the town of Havre-Saint-Pierre, a pleasant place from which to launch explorations of Canada’s vast wilderness.  Of particular interest is the Mingan Archipelago National Park Reserve. Established in 1984, the park encompasses a chain of about 40 islands and boasts not only the aforementioned limestone rocks, but also an impressive variety of fauna and flora such as puffins and the rare Mingan thistle.

Oct 10, Thursday
Bar Harbor, Maine, USA » 8 am 6 pm
Cradled off the craggy coast of Maine lies Mount Desert Island and the charming seaport town of Bar Harbor. Earlier last century, when it was the summer retreat of millionaires, it boasted magnificent estate homes, or "cottages," many of which were completely destroyed by the fire of 1947. However, some things never change. The priceless asset of the island's scenic beauty remains untouched by time. Vistas of emerald-green forests and rugged valleys from the superb vantage point of Mount Cadillac remain just as spectacular, and the rugged shoreline scenery is still as awe inspiring as it ever was. The choice is yours. Take a scenic drive through some of Maine's most spectacular scenery or stroll along the picturesque main street with its inviting shops and galleries. Perhaps you will choose to sample some of North America's most delectable seafood at an authentic lobster bake, or cruise the fascinating coastal area.
Oct 11, Friday
Boston, Massachusetts, USA » 8 am 5 pm
Relive nearly four hundred years of history as you explore myriad sights of Boston, a city that exudes pride in its past and future. Superb shopping abounds and sightseeing attractions are legendary. You'll revel in exploring the Freedom Trail, the Old North Church and the Boston Common. A few miles away lie Lexington and Concord where the momentous events that began in 1775 come alive. Boston has not been content to rest on the laurels of its glorious past. Progress is everywhere. Glazed high-rises soar skyward and the colorful waterfront area has been artfully renovated. Your visit to this thriving metropolis is bound to impress.
Oct 12, Saturday
Newport, Rhode Island, USA » 8 am 6 pm
Newport, Rhode Island, is a stylish, world-famous yachting center with a long tradition of elegance. For almost a century and a half, it was the home of the America's Cup yachting races. The colonial sections of Newport boast many authentic historic buildings, some dating back to the 1600s. However, most impressive of all, are the opulent mansions built at the turn of this century by industrial tycoons along Ocean Drive and Bellevue Avenue. Fashioned after the palaces of Europe their interiors boast lavish use of marble, alabaster, gilt, mosaics and stained glass complemented by magnificent furnishings and fine tapestries. You'll be spellbound listening to the legends and stories of families such as the Morgans, Astors, Fishers and Vanderbilts, all of whom had "cottages" here. Although Rhode Island is America's smallest state, it has a legacy of history and tradition that far outweighs it size.
Oct 13, Sunday
New York City (Brooklyn), New York, USA » 8 am  
Welcome to one of the world's most famous and exciting cities. Just a short ride over the Brooklyn Bridge, the treasures of the Big Apple awaits. 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.
