Travel from the Great Lakes to the East Coast this Fall
Canada was built through an exploration of the waterways, lakes, and rivers. What better way to explore this history of Canada then through a historic voyage through time?
Travel Dynamics International is offering two trips this fall, the first covering the history of the War of 1812 from Detroit to Quebec City and the second travelling with Charlotte Gray from Quebec City to New England.
From the Great Lakes to the St. Lawrence River
This journey will take you from Detroit all the way to Quebec City, covering some of the most important battle fields of the War of 1812. Guest lecturers will include John Grant, an Emmy-award winning producer from PBS, Sidney Horenstein, a geologist and environmental educator with the American Museum of Natural History, and Ray Jones, the author of several companion books including The War of 1812, Niagara Falls, and Legendary Lighthouses.
Trips leaving from Detroit start on August 25th, September 1st, and September 8th, while the return trips from Quebec City depart on September 1st, September 8th, and September 15th.
From the St. Lawrence River to Coastal Maine:
A Fall Voyage to Historic Towns and Scenic Waterways
Canadian historian Charlotte Gray will be a leader on this tour helping to introduce guests to the regional history through a series of lectures and informal conversations. The trip will visit historic sites and areas like the Gaspe Peninsula, Prince Edward Island the home of Anne of Green Gables, Cape Breton and Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site, the UNESCO World Heritage site at Lunenburg in Nova Scotia, culminating in Acadia National Park in Maine. Many of the locations from Halifax to Portland Maine were also important ports of call for privateers and merchant shipping during the War of 1812.
