The Great Lakes: Discovering a North American Treasure
July 8-15, 2013
$3,995 per person, double occupancy
When the glaciers covering North America retreated more than 15,000 years ago, they left behind a unique legacy: the Great Lakes. Forming the border between the U.S. and Canada—and making up one-fifth of the planet's fresh surface water—these inland seas are perfect for a family adventure. You'll visit Sheboygan, settled by French explorers in the 17th century, and Victorian Mackinac Island. A transit through the Soo Locks—the world's busiest— is always exciting. You'll also stop at Manitoulin, the world's largest freshwater island, and visit the Wikwemikong Unceded Indian Reserve, a thriving Native American community. After a visit to Bayfield, Ontario, your cruise ends with a sail through Lake Erie to your final destination, Toronto.
