Quebec City
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
In having a night stay over in Quebec City, we had a chance to see the city at night & a day to walk the upper city. Did not take a tour, but had a free shuttle from the Dawn to the a drop off point in the lower part of the city. Walked up to the upper city to see everything above. Then went to the tourist info center & found a city bus -$10 Canadian($16 US) round trip- to Montmorency Falls 40 minute bus ride which was a highlight of the day.

Did a walking tour of Halifax Going all the way to the Fort & Botanical Gardens.

Enjoyed seeing Halifax. This port was not planned but a change due to Hurricane "Sandy". We did not get to see Portland, Maine or New York.

Our first time to the Northeast so enjoyed Boston. We took the city bus rather than the shuttle buses which cost quite a bit more to ride, which was just around the corner from the pier. That bus turned into an electric trolley as we entered the tunnel which then took us to South Station to pick up the subway to the center of the city. We got confused & got off with others at South Station. We went outside the gates & found out we would have to pay the $2.50 to get back in to the subway. Talked to a transit person & found out we were only a few blocks from the freedom trail. We walked all the way to North Church & then rode our 1st subway ride ever back to south station where we transferred to the SL2 line back to the Dawn.

We walked the city on a quiet Sunday morning. Saw Douglas Arthur Memorial & Statue, St. Paul's Church & stuck cannonball, by the Naval Base & Battleship Wisconsin, & Nauticus Submarine, Mose Meyer House & historic Old Freemason District. Then back to the Dawn.

Baltimore

We decided to ask a security guard how to get to Fort McHenry & he sent us it seems the long way. We figured about 2+ miles where we visited the Fort. Got a all year pass for $10 for both of us to visit any national park anywhere we want rather then the $7 each ticket to get into the fort. Was worth the walk. We then picked up the free "Circulator"(4 different routes) bus to the inner harbor where we saw the Constitution Sailing Ship & vicinity. Picked up the Circulator bus & went to Federal Hill, John Hopkins Hospital, & all around Baltimore. Nice day for us at no expense.
