|1. New York
From Wall Street's skyscrapers to the neon lights of Times Square to Central Park's leafy paths, New York City pulses with an irrepressible energy. World-class museums like MoMA and unforgettable icons like the Statue of Liberty beckon, but discovering the subtler strains of New York's vast ambition is equally rewarding: ethnic enclaves and shops, historic streets of dignified brownstones, and trendy bars and eateries all add to the urban buzz.
|2. Halifax, Nova Scotia
Surrounded by natural treasures and glorious seascapes, Halifax is an attractive and vibrant hub with noteworthy historic and modern architecture, great dining and shopping, and a lively nightlife and festival scene. It's a perfect starting point to any tour of the Atlantic Provinces!
|3. St John’s, New Foundland
Old meets new in the province's capital (metro-area population a little more than 200,000), with modern office buildings surrounded by heritage shops and colorful row houses. St. John's mixes English and Irish influences, Victorian architecture and modern convenience, and traditional music and rock and roll into a heady brew. The arts scene is lively, but overall the city moves at a relaxed pace.
|4. Woody Point, New Foundland
Acclaimed for its unearthly landscape, Woody Point is probably as close to Mars as you will ever get in this lifetime. Situated on the west coast of the island, the Tablelands behind Woody Point in the Gros Morne National Park are composed of peridotite — like much of the surface of Mars — and NASA, the Canadian Space Agency, plus others are studying this unique land form searching for insights into possible bacterial life on the red planet.
|5. Gaspe, Quebec
French explorer Jacques Cartier landed in Gaspé on his first voyage across the Atlantic in 1534, earning the title "Birthplace of Canada” for this city. By the mid-1700s it was an important cod-fishing center; later it hosted a duty-free port attracting European and American ships. It was also a military base in World War II, but it wasn’t until 1959 that Gaspé finally gained true city status.
