Exit Welland Canal at Port Weller

Today Port Suez is a modern city with three harbors on the Red Sea, but in the 25th century B.C.E., it was the site where the pharaohs protected their lands from marine invasions. From Port Suez, the Suez Canal flows 193 kilometers (120 miles) through the Isthmus of Suez, across saline lakes known as the Bitter Lakes, to Port Said on the Mediterranean Sea. Built under the guidance of French diplomat Ferdinand de Lesseps, the canal took 10 years to construct, opening in 1869. When the Suez Canal opened, it eliminated the need for ships to sail around Africa to reach South Asia.

Enter St Marys Falls Canal

Located where the Suez Canal flows into the Red Sea is the city of Port Suez. Although today Port Suez is a modern city with three harbors, in the 25th century B.C.E., it was the site where the pharaohs protected their lands from marine invasions. The Suez Canal is so narrow that large ships must travel through single file—and it has no locks, so water flows unfettered between the Red Sea and the Mediterranean. When the canal opened, it eliminated the need for ships to sail around Africa to reach South Asia: It reduced the journey by 7,000 kilometers (4,350 miles).

Gaspe, Quebec, Canada

The Gaspé Peninsula’s dramatic coastline is punctuated by Percé Rock, an iconic limestone formation that has inspired artists, writers and poets for years and remains one of the country’s top tourist attractions. The name Gaspé is thought to come from a word in the native Mi’kmaq language for \"land’s end,” not surprising because Gaspé’s biggest challenge—and the secret to its unspoiled landscape—is its lack of accessibility. Located hundreds of miles from Montréal and Québec City, Gaspé is in the Gaspésie–Îles-de-la-Madeleine region of eastern Québec where the Gulf of St. Lawrence meets the Gaspé Basin. The easiest way to visit is by cruise ship.

Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada

Charlottetown is the capital of Canada’s smallest province, Prince Edward Island, as well as its largest city, though it has fewer than 35,000 residents. Despite its modest size, the city has an impressive number of Victorian houses and great parks waiting to be explored. For Canadians, it is perhaps most famous as the Birthplace of Confederation. It was here, mostly at Province House, that an 1864 conference led to the creation of the Dominion of Canada. Nearby Prince Edward Island National Park is home to white-sand beaches and hiking and biking trails—plus fans can see the house and farm that inspired the beloved book Anne of Green Gables.

Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

Located on a rocky inlet on the Atlantic, Halifax—Nova Scotia’s provincial capital—is defined by its maritime geography. It's a spirited mix of world-class history and nautical-themed museums alongside bunkers and fortresses, plus striking public art, funky shops and excellent pubs serving up folk music (and good pints).

Explore the waterfront where steamships once anchored to drop off arriving immigrants. Savor the culinary scene for fresh seafood and Nova Scotia specialties—the city has street vendors and casual joints and upscale eateries. The lush greenery, rocky coastline and charming villages just outside Halifax are worth the trip from downtown.

Quebec City, Quebec, Canada

Few places in North America are as steeped in history as Québec City. Older than Jamestown, its original fortifications remain intact. The historic district, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is home to religious orders that date back to the 17th century while the Place-Royale would look familiar to Samuel de Champlain, even with its gift shops and cafés. The British took control of New France by 1760, but more than 95 percent of Québec City's population still speaks French as its first language. As you visit historic sites and dine at restaurants that serve Québec’s distinctive cuisine, you'll discover a remarkable thriving culture.
