Eastern Canada

Starting in Toronto all of the cities and attractions within Eastern Canada are but a train ride away. Spend a few days in cosmopolitan Toronto. Test your fortitude with a visit to the CN Tower. This is the tallest free-standing structure in the western hemisphere and it now includes EdgeWalk, a thrilling hands-free walk on an outside ledge of the tower. Or visit St. Lawrence Market, the ‘World’s Best Food Market.’ If you’re sports minded the Hockey Hall of Fame may be to your taste. Or help the local economy by spending some time in the Eaton Centre, with dozens of fashion retailers and places to shop. Then head to the nearby Chinatown. It’s one of three Chinatowns in the city and borders on Kensington Market, a bohemian mix of vintage shops, funky restaurants, cafes and bars in addition to Latin American markets and food stalls.

Your travels then take you to unforgettable Montreal. Since Cartier landed here in 1535, Montreal has evolved from a tiny village to a major metropolis. Old Montreal's Parisian-style streets are a wonderful place to wander—stop at an intimate bistro or sidewalk café for a taste of Europe. But in addition to all the old-fashioned elegance, you'll also find a vibrant dining and club scene that reflects contemporary Montreal's culturally diverse population.

Think that you’re done? Not even close. Continue to Quebec City, a UNESCO world heritage site. You'll love Château Frontenac (the world's most photographed hotel), the centuries-old architecture, and the historic sites. Then take the overnight train onto the Marvelous Maritimes. Whale watching, rocky coastlines and beautiful scenery make Eastern Canada a truly unforgettable destination.
