Things to Do on the East Coast
Throughout your East Coast cruise, you’ll visit some of the United States’ most important historical sites, its most beautiful landmarks, and its most vibrant cities. Since most East Coast cruises take place in the fall, you’ll see the eastern forests burst into the most spectacular red, orange, and yellow hues. Taking a foliage tour from a Silversea luxury cruise offers the best combination of amazing sights and incredible comfort.
You’ll witness firsthand the picturesque lighthouses which guard the Eastern shores as you travel along idyllic coastal locations throughout Eastern Canada and Maine. You certainly won’t regret stopping for a bowl of clam chowder or a lobster roll while you’re there, either. It’s important to plan ahead and make the most of your stop in New York City, where you’ll find more opportunities for entertainment and fine dining than you’ll have time to enjoy. History lovers will enjoy Boston which is home to many museums, memorials, and landmarks relating to the founding of the country. Your ship may also stop at various ports along the southeastern United States, each with their own unique cuisines and historic landmarks.
East Coast Cruise Tips
If you’re accustomed to sea sailing, you might notice that ocean sailings are more susceptible to rough waters. You can plan ahead for this by consulting with a doctor in the weeks leading up to your cruise about the need for prescription strength motion sickness medicine. Additionally, since East Coast cruises often take place in the fall, you should pack layers of clothing. Although afternoons tend to warm up, the days begin and end with very cool temperatures.
Many people don’t realize that New England and eastern Canada are prime wine-producing regions. If you love trying different wines, make a day-trip out of visiting a local winery or consider tacking on some time before or after your trip for a DIY wine tour. If you prefer beer, there are more bars and pubs per capita in Halifax than in any other city in North America- it’ll be easy to find more than a few pubs that are to your liking.
