Seniors Venture to Northeast Canadian Coast

Senior visitors who have been there say that they “love Atlantic Canada and everything it has to offer – especially the one-of-a-kind coastline that wraps around cozy bays and inlets that take you by cinnamon-sand beaches and breathtaking mountain vistas.” 

The term “Atlantic Canada” was coined when Newfoundland joined the Dominion of Canada in 1949, which until then was comprised of New Brunswich, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island and was known as the “Maritime Provinces”.

A ribbon of highways curl with the fascinating  coastline to bring senior visitors up close to lighthouses, hidden fishing villages and harbors seemingly always cloaked in a velvety fog.

The beautiful landscape is full of history and the breathtaking Atlantic coastline adds to a great vacation in eastern Canada.

 Senior Whale Watchers, Historians, Explorers

History comes alive in Atlantic Canada, with an enchanting cluster of provinces that are known for their rugged coastline and distinct maritime culture. Check out Newfoundland & Labrador, Canada’s easternmost province, where senior visitors can go whale watching, cruise through the “Seabird Capital of North America,” and explore North America’s only known Viking settlement.

Consider spending time in Nova Scotia exploring the iconic lighthouse at Peggy’s Cove, the scenic Cabot Trail, and the national historic sites.

High tide, Low Tide, whale watching, lighthouses everywhere, plus exciting cities make Atlantic Canada unique in the entire world. In two words, the coast is “totally awesome.”

 Seniors Explore The Maritime Provinces

The four distinct provinces attract visitors from all over the world. Atlantic Canada is made up of the maritime provinces of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and the combined province of Newfoundland and Labrador. The population of the four Atlantic Provinces in 2011, was 2,327,638.

Each province offers its own set of unique diversions although the entire area is known for its striking seascapes, geological formations and wildlife.

Late summer to mid-winter are the best times to visit the area. If you love natural phenomena, whale watching, and the rugged New England coast, you’ll love the Bay of Fundy.

Wikitravel notes that the Atlantic Provinces of Canada are rugged and sparsely populated and that the provinces have traditionally made much of their income from the area’s large fisheries.

This is changing in the region, as oil production, information technology, biomedical research, post-secondary education and tourism become more important for local economies. The many parks in the region invite senior visitors to explore and discover.

The Atlantic Canada Guide provides visitors with all the right information to enjoy a vacation in Canada’s Atlantic Provinces. You will find each day to be a unique experience providing you with a host of great memories.  jeb
