Visit Bath, the City of Ships!
We love this friendly port city. Main Street is truly a living piece of Americana. You have to visit to see what it’s all about.
Historic Vicksburg, Mississippi – The ‘Key to the South’
We may have mentioned – we love southern hospitality, especially in Vicksburg, Mississippi! There is history everywhere in this town. What is more American that Coca-Cola®?! You have to visit the Biedenharn Coca-Cola® Museum where Coke was first bottled. Visit the Old Courthouse Museum to learn the history of the area including the Natchez Indian tribes, French settlers and artifacts from the Civil War. Enjoy amazing restaurants, great shopping, art galleries – and did we mention – lots of history?!
Visit Portland, Maine
Portland, Maine, is a must see. Located on the beautiful Maine coastline, it’s known for lobster, mild but quickly changing weather, lighthouses, amazing fall foliage, fresh sea air and beaches. Foodies will love the local cuisine, history buffs will not want to miss Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s childhood home, the Victoria Mansion, a National Historic Landmark, and the Tate House Museum. For outdoor adventures, there is hiking, cycling, kayaking and paddle boarding. There are great microbreweries, wineries and distilleries to visit. And if that’s not enough, there are two amusement parks.

Voted the “Best Foodie City” two years in a row, Baton Rouge is one of our favorite cities to visit. In the heart of the Cajun south, you do not want to miss the crawfish. Get your Zydeco on and enjoy some authentic Cajun. The year-round semi-tropical climate makes outdoor activities like golf a must. There are also many wonderful plantations to visit. So many things to see and do, it’s almost impossible to make recommendations. Check out this virtual tour of Baton Rouge to find out why we love this cruise destination!
Celebrating the Historic South.
Famous for its festivals, nightlife, music and food there really is nothing like New Orleans. Of course, we can’t talk about The Big Easy without talking about the French Quarter (Vieux Carré). This may be one of the best places in the world to people watch. Shop in the French Market, and visit Gallier House, a museum which highlights the opulence of the area during the mid 1800’s. If you enjoy museums, there are 45 in the New Orleans area to choose from! Do not miss Mardi Gras World and the National World War II Museum. If plantations catch your fancy, there are many tours to choose from. For something really unique, checkout New Orleans’ cemeteries. Fascinating fact – because New Orleans is built on a swamp, all burials must be above ground. Over the years, these ornate groupings of above ground tombs and memorials have come to be known as ‘Cities of the Dead’. Eating in New Orleans can be an experience in itself! From gumbo to their famous beignets – you do not want to miss out on the cuisine. Click here for some great restaurants.
For a great view of the city, hop on a good old fashioned streetcar:
Celebrating the Historic South
We are celebrating the American South this week, starting with the historic Oak Alley Plantation. Built during the height of the South’s golden age, her antebellum grounds hold stories of the sugar industry, slavery, and the Civil War from times of prosperity to despair and everything between (even modern day ghost stories). You may recognize the Plantation; it is a popular filming location for many shows – everything from Days of Our Lives to a Beyoncé music video!
Vancouver is not only beautiful and has a lot of history – it is a bustling city and we love it. We think you will too!
There is so much to do – from entertainment to attractions, definitely something for everyone. Visit the Punjabi Market in China Town, check-out the art galleries, go whale watching, get moving with a biking/cycling adventure or head out-of-town for some amazing skiing!
We are continuing our celebration of Canada this week with Toronto. If you like heights – this one’s for you! The Edge Walk on the CN Tower – 116 stories above ground, take a ‘hands-free’ walk around the tower. The perfect way to see ALL of Toronto! Not for the faint of heart –
Prefer to keep your feet on the ground? Good news – Toronto has great golf courses! There are other wonderful things to see including Ripley’s Aquarium, and the Giant Pandas at the Zoo. Toronto also has great museums, exhibits, festivals and food! Also, one of the Seven Wonders of the World is just a short drive away – visit Niagara Falls, an unforgettable experience.
