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.


Gaspe Peninsula, Nova Scotia
In the history of tourism in Québec, Gaspe is identified as one of the first widely known tourist destinations. Beginning in the 19th century, Percé—and legendary Percé Rock—as well as Carleton and Métis were the first resort areas to welcome a middle-class clientele, who enjoyed salmon fishing and the seaside. The Reford Gardens evoke this era in an exhibit showcased in the Estevan Lodge.

A region of sea and mountains, Gaspe is ideal for sea kayaking and scuba diving, as well as short or long hikes and cycling excursions. In addition, this region offers excellent opportunities for moose and caribou observation as well as whale and bird watching from land or at sea.


Baie Comeau, Canada
Baie Comeau is located 260 miles north-east of Quebec City in the Côte-Nord region of the province of Quebec, Canada. It is located on the shores of the Saint Lawrence River near the mouth of the Manicouagan River. The Baie-Comeau region's landscape has been shaped by glacial retreats and extraordinary and unusual natural phenomena such as a meteorite, which caused the immense Manicouagan crater. The region's economy is based on mining, lumbering, aluminum production, hydroelectric production and tourism.
