In the recent weeks, I’ve had a string of articles come out on Travel and Escape Canada that feature east coast destinations, most of which are best to visit during the summer and fall. I’ve aggregated them here, and you can find links to the stories within the text below each picture. Feel free to write me if you have any questions or want recommendations:
East Coast Beach Towns: This round up features Charleston, Cape May, and St. Simon’s and dishes on what to do, where to stay, and what to eat and drink in each city.
Thousand Islands Seaway, New York: The Saint Lawrence River begins at the northeast corner of Lake Ontario, snaking its way toward Quebec City through Montreal, and serves as part of the border between Ontario and New York. The Thousand Islands, a 1,864-island archipelago, straddles the Canada-U.S. border, zigzagging for 80 kilometres through the middle of the Saint Lawrence Seaway. Last summer I had the pleasure of visiting the area and taking a boat cruise down the river. From public campgrounds to private mansions, the region is loaded with eye candy and salty-dog communities.
Syracuse, New York: In this feature, I explain what makes Syracuse a great place for a romantic getaway: The opportunity for a well-rounded and compromised-filled weekend. Romance in Syracuse that includes barbecue? You betcha.
Beaufort, North Carolina: With a population of only 4,000, Beaufort doesn’t exactly jump off the map, especially given its location down south amongst the much-talked-about beach towns of Virginia Beach, Myrtle Beach and Hilton Head. Yet, as it often goes, this is exactly what makes Beaufort such a tremendous place to visit, and what ultimately has earned its recognition as one of America’s Coolest Small Towns (Budget Travel, 2012).
