European Influences in the New World

October 13 – 20, 2023

From New York, the city of steeples, to Québec City, “la vieille capitale, North America is blessed with more than 400 years of European influence.

New York City, originally founded by the Dutch as New Amsterdam and gifted the Statue of Liberty from France, now gives to the world the 9/11 Memorial & Museum that honors hope, resilience, and unity for all future generations. Applaud a Broadway Show; catch the view from the Top of the Rock; stroll the High Line; an overnight affords time to embrace it all.

Fall foliage calls us to beautiful Boston, dubbed the Athens of America, that’s built upon almost 400 years of academia and culture. The city’s wharves whisper of tea parties, its libraries of tell revolutionary greats, and its JFK Presidential Library & Museum to recount America’s “Camelot”.

In Halifax, the capital of Nova Scotia, we find roots of Celtic, Acadian, and African cultures along with the largest number of lighthouses of any Canadian province. Head to pretty Peggy’s Cove to see the most photographed lighthouse in the country then crack open a ruby lobster in the surrounding fishing village.

For two days, we follow the “whale route” of the St. Lawrence River where 13 species of marine mammals feast of the plentiful krill.

Enticing, enchanting, Québec City calls with her 400-year-old Vieux-Québec (Old Town), an impeccable UNESCO site, that still ripples with life along meandering cobbled streets and the green-cooper turreted Chateau Frontenac.

Extend you Québecois immersion in the City of Saints, Montréal, where the celebrated Golden Square Mile awaits with impeccable Victorian-era buildings bursting with French boutiques, Parisian-style bistros, magnificent McGill University, and the stately Montréal Museum of Fine Arts.
