    6Brunswick, GA
    In the anchor town serving the barrier Golden Isles, wander downtown Brunswick’s streets, lined with swaying palms side by side with mossy oaks. Watch shrimp boats unload their fresh fare at the docks and perhaps sample their catches in a rustic seafood shack. Markers throughout town tell the history of this seaport George Washington proclaimed as one of the five original ports of entry for the colonies in 1789. However, American Queen Voyages guests may well wish to visit one of Georgia’s storied barrier islands – including St. Simons and Jekyll Island – just off the Brunswick coastline. According to the poet Sidney Lanier, across the Marshes of Glynn, “heavenly woods and glades” grace unspoiled, unhurried St. Simons Island. The little island is known for its salt marshes and sandy stretches of beach, home to birds like spoonbills and gannets. It is also home to the World War II Home Front Museum, where visitors gain a glimpse into life during that time as it was lived among three critical military facilities. The museum is housed in the historic St. Simons Coast Guard Station, built in 1936. Located just across the water from St. Simons Island, Jekyll Island was once home to some of America’s most wealthy and prominent citizens, including the Crane family, the Pulitzers, Morgans, Vanderbilts, Rockefellers, and Goodyear clan to name but a few. These privileged families used Jekyll Island as a hunting and golf retreat, spending lazy summers here and building historic homes that have been lovingly restored to their former glory.

    9Port Canaveral, FL
    Port Canaveral is 59 miles from Orlando; the estimated travel time is one hour. Orlando is home to more than a dozen theme parks. Chief among them is Walt Disney World, comprised of the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and water parks. Another major destination, Universal Orlando, offers Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. If you have decided to stay local, welcome to Florida’s space coast, home to the Kennedy Space Center, sugary beaches, and plenty of outdoor adventures. If you are visiting from up north or the Midwest and fun in the sun is paramount, use this port to get some need Vitamin C. You have two close-by beaches to experience: Jetty Park offers lots of amenities and a vibrant scene, whereas Cheri Down Park has more of a low-key vibe. Other outdoor pursuits include discovering the nature paths and wildlife that make this area home. Depending on how much time you have, anglers may be able to participate in a fishing charter. The rich waterways are home to some world-class inshore fishing for popular sport fish like redfish, snook, speckled sea trout, and tarpon. Exploration Tower is seven stories of fun and education but if you have never been before, your time is better spent at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. It’s not too far and prepare to be impressed. If you prefer to stay nearer the port (10 minutes), grab a bite or a cold drink at the Cocoa Beach Pier, extending 800-feet over the Atlantic.

    10Freeport, Bahamas
    In 1955, the second most populated city of The Bahamas was little more than a pine forest. There were no beach resorts, no casinos or yachts in the harbor. Grand Bahama was one of least developed islands of The Bahamas, a place where a few hundred people made their living off the sea. No one could have imagined the island would become a Caribbean playground, save for Wallace Groves, an American financier from Virginia who owned a lumber company on the island. Groves saw the possibilities of the island as a tourist destination. Less than a hundred miles away was the United States and American vacationers were already streaming into Cuba by the tens of thousands. Consequently, in 1955, Groves approached the Bahamian government with his idea to build a town that catered to both industry and tourists. Shortly after, Freeport was born. Over 30 years later, the result is a community completely tailored to the getaway tourist, a paradise offering almost every kind of vacation activity imaginable. The Bahamas has long been one of the most eco-friendly destinations in the world. Rainbow-laden waterfalls and underwater caves beg visitors to embrace a childlike wonder of the world. Wander through beaches dewed with tidal pools and sand ripples as polychromatic fowl fly overhead. Dive into cool water to explore the mind-blowing communities of coral reefs under the surface. The Port Lucaya Marina is home to the Underwater Explorers Society, which offers a wide variety of diving, dolphin experiences, shopping, and much more.
