Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island
Charlottetown is located on Prince Edward Island, just off the eastern shore of Canada, in the Gulf of the St. Lawrence River, separated from mainland Nova Scotia by the Northumberland Strait. The city is the capitol of PEI, and is known as Canada's birthplace after the historic 1864 Charlottetown Conference which led to Canada's Confederation. Province House National Historic Site of Canada is open to the public.

The Charlottetown boardwalk takes you along the waterfront overlooking the harbour entrance. The boardwalk is part of a walking trail that travels from Confederation Landing Park along the waterfront to the Victoria Park lighthouse. The historic Beaconsfield House, built in 1877, serves as the headquarters for the Prince Edward Island Museum and Heritage Foundation and is open to the public.

The Charlottetown Driving Park ("Atlantic Canada's Fastest Racetrack") has been holding harness racing since 1889. If you've never seen pacers race, don't miss it. Try a ride above the traffic in the Red Double Decker London Bus to see it all in scenic Charlottetown, complete with guides and narration.

Sailing the Gulf of St. Lawrence
The Gulf of St. Lawrence is a special marine environment from an oceanographic perspective:
* It is isolated from the Atlantic Ocean
* It receives large amounts of freshwater drainage from the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence River basin
,br>* It is usually ice covered in winter
* It has numerous shallow areas and also deep troughs.

The Gulf is a semi-enclosed sea, open to the Atlantic Ocean through the Cabot Strait and the narrower Strait of Belle Isle. The Laurentian Channel that runs though the gulf is a long, continuous trough over 900 feet deep that runs over 900 miles from the continental shelf in the Atlantic Ocean to the St. Lawrence Estuary at the mouth of the Saguenay River. This trough brings deep oceanic waters to the estuary.


Miramichi, New Brunswick
Miramichi is the largest city in northern New Brunswick, Canada.

Situated along the world famous salmon fishing river, Miramichi has many historic sites, 1.5 miles of walking trails, canoeing and kayaking.
