History lies around every corner of this Massachusetts city, which was founded in 1630. Boston is best explored on foot; follow the 2.5-mile Freedom Trail for a sampling of its most notable landmarks. The marked path leads to 16 historic sites such as the Paul Revere House, Faneuil Hall, and the Old North Church. At the trail's end, you can visit the oldest commissioned warship in the U.S. Navy, the 1797 USS Constitution, also known as "Old Ironsides" – a nickname earned during the War of 1812. Other options include visits to some of Boston's extraordinary museums, tours of Cambridge, home to Harvard University (just across the Charles River), and burgers and beers at a pub inspired by the TV show "Cheers."

Saint John is located in the southern portion of this Canadian coastal province, where the Saint John River meets the Bay of Fundy. Historically, the city has been a hub of commercial port activity, and attractions like Old City Market, Market Square and an abundance of museums pay tribute to that tradition. The outstanding New Brunswick Museum is the oldest continuously operating museum in Canada. Rockwood Park, in the heart of the city, houses a zoo, a golf course, freshwater lakes and hiking trails. Look for the famous Reversing Falls, a phenomenon caused by the enormous rise and fall of the tides in the Bay of Fundy.
