  • Lunenburg (Nova Scotia): Settled by German, Swiss, and French colonists, this tidy town is superbly situated on a hill flanked by two harbors, and it boasts some of the most unique and quietly extravagant architecture in the Maritimes. Bring your walking shoes for the hills.
  • Victoria (Prince Edward Island): This tiny village west of Charlottetown is surrounded by fields of grain and potatoes, and hasn't changed all that much in the past, oh, 100 years or so. Try to time your visit to take in an evening show at the town's wonderfully old-fashioned playhouse.
  • Trinity (Newfoundland): Three centuries ago, Trinity was among the most important ports in the New World, a place from which English merchants controlled the flow of goods into and out of the New World. This compact village has also been among the best in eastern Canada at preserving its past, and the architecture and perfect scale of the village is unmatched in the region.
  • Twillingate (Newfoundland): This end-of-the-world village is located on and around the convoluted harbors and inlets of Newfoundland's north-central shore. At the mouth of Notre Dame bay, high headlands mark the way for incoming ships; walk out there and scan the horizon for whales and icebergs.
