There were no Fall colors this year but the weather was beautiful. Acadia National Park was a big surprise in Bar Harbor. There is a free shuttle bus from the Village Green to the park. We spent 4 hours in the park taking shuttle buses from location to location and still only saw less than a tenth of the park. What we saw was beautiful.
The Freedom Walk in Boston was interesting. It ends at the USS Constitution (Old Ironsides) which is mostly closed for restoration. However, that is a good thing because you can write your name in the new copper cladding and become a permanent part of the ship.
The Citadel and the Gardens in Halifax, Nova Scotia are a must see. The Gardens are beautiful. The Citadel has a very interesting war museum inside the fortress. The tour of the Citadel is included in the entrance fee and should be enjoyed. It covers the history of the fortress and its importance to the city. It also gave us a chance to see how the old soldiers lived and fired muskets.

Plan ahead for getting to the ship. It is not easily accessible. It cost $65, before tip, for two people to take a shuttle from the airport to the cruise ship.
