Route USA Ostküste 2008

Travel Map

13 days on the east coast – A summary
Finally I found some time to summarize our holiday trip along the East Cost of the United States and Canada.
Within 13 days, we traveled about 4300 kilometers.

On this journey we passed about 10 US states:

– Connecticut (New Haven)
– Delaware (on the trip from Washington D.C. to New York City)
– Maine ( Bar Harbor, Bangor, Ellsworth, Portland, Rockland, Skowhegan)
– Massachussets (Boston, Hyannis, Peabody, Plymouth, Salem)
– Maryland (on the trip from Washington D.C. to New York City)
– New York (New York City, Niagara Falls)
– Pennsylvania (Gettysburg, Harrisburg)
– Rhode Island (Newport)
– Virginia (Charlottesville, Fredericksburg, Jamestown, Richmond, Shenandoah National Park, Williamsburg)
– West Virginia (Harpers Ferry)

Toronto – Niagara Falls

We spent our time with a long walk along the waterfront with great views of the falls. In the local IMAX theater we watched the IMAX film „Niagara“, which gives a good views from different angles on the falls.

Ottawa – Toronto

Prescott (historical site), St. Lawrence River
1000 Islands Parkway
Toronto: Chinatown, Downtown

Montréal – Ottawa

Had a very relaxing sunday in downtown Ottawa around the Parliament hill. Ottaway is great because of the near river with some waterfalls. This makes it nice to walk along the waterside and enjoy a day or two.

Québec – Montréal

Leaving Québec after breakfast
Driving on a smaller street next to the highway along St. Lawrence River
Visiting Trois-Rivières, a small town where St. Lawrence and other rivers come together
Visiting Montréal

Acadia National Park – Québec

Today we made our way to Canada, passing the US border south of Québec. Apparently we were not really prepared for the situation that this is the french speaking part of the country where you can hardly order an Ice Cream in Mc Donalds when only talking english.
