Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island

Oct. 7-24, 2024

*Passport Needed

Our fall foliage tour takes us back to northeast Canada! Nova Scotia is one of Canada’s four Maritime provinces and almost entirely surrounded by water. Prince Edward Island is the smallest province, and people say it’s so scenic and peaceful there it feels like a storybook land.

Leaving Lubbock the first day, we spend the night in Texarkana, then head to Nashville our second night. From there we continue north to Akron, OH, with a stop at world famous Lehman’s, a store founded in 1955 to serve the local Amish with non-electric household goods. The next day we drive to Danbury, CT to overnight and then on to Portland, Maine, stopping to see several spectacular lighthouses along the coast. After leaving Portland we begin our journey toward Bar Harbor for two nights, where we stay at the luxurious Bar Harbor Inn and Spa, located right on the bay! The next morning a step-on guide will give us a tour of breathtaking Acadia National Park. Afterwards there will be time to shop and explore on your own. We cross the border the next day into Canada, with a stop in beautiful St. John to see the reversing rapids where the St. John River meets the Bay of Fundy. Twice each day, the tide rises 28 feet and forces the Saint John River to reverse its direction. It’s the only place in the world where this happens! We will overnight in Moncton, NB then drive to Halifax, Nova Scotia, stopping to visit Hopewell Rocks Provincial Park to see the Flowerpot Rocks (unique tidal formations shaped from the tides of the Bay of Fundy). After arriving in Halifax a tour of Alexander Keith’s Brewery is planned. It is one of the oldest working breweries in North America. After checking into the hotel, we will drive to Peggy’s Cove to enjoy it’s spectacular sunset. Our second day in Halifax a kilted guide will give us a tour of Mahone Bay (recently named one of Canada’s top ten most beautiful towns) as well as a tour of the city of Halifax and its connection to the famous Titanic tragedy. We say goodbye to Halifax the next morning and travel by ferry to Prince Edward Island to explore its stunning beaches and lighthouses. After overnighting in Charlottetown, PE we drive to Green Gables Heritage Place the next day to experience the inspiration for the setting in Lucy Maud Montgomery’s classic tale of fiction, Anne of Green Gables. Before heading to Fredericton, NB for the night we plan to stop at COWS Creamery for a tour of their ice cream, t-shirt, and cheese production…and tasting! We will also cross the Confederation Bridge, a box girder bridge that spans eight miles over the Northumberland Strait into New Brunswick. The next morning we begin heading south, crossing back into the US and overnighting again in Portland, ME. We will overnight in Scranton, PA, Columbus, OH (stopping in Canton, OH to tour the Pro Football Hall of Fame), St. Louis, MO, and Oklahoma City on our way home to Lubbock.
As always, there will be surprise stops along our journey!
