Here are a few of our favorite North America journeys for solo travelers:

Great Lakes & Waterfronts: Chicago to Toronto

Set off on a scenic 14-day voyage through all five of America's Great Lakes, uncovering innovative cities while enjoying plenty of time to admire the natural beauty of the gorgeous islands and bodies of water straddling the U.S. and Canada. Take a horse-drawn carriage ride on historic Mackinac Island, sail into the mists of Niagara Falls on the legendary Hornblower, and discover Ojibwe traditions on Manitoulin Island when you attend a smudging ceremony and powwow.

Discover North American Waterways: St. Lawrence and the Great Lakes

See North America's rich natural beauty and buzzing metro hubs on this adventure through the Great Lakes and beyond! Begin your journey in sophisticated Montréal, one of Canada's great cultural jewels, then discover more about Canada's past and aboriginal traditions before moving onto scenic Lake Ontario and the city of Kingston. Visit Cleveland’s iconic Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and enjoy a colorful tour through music history. And, in Chicago, take in the Windy City from a unique perspective as you float past more than 50 architectural wonders during an architectural boat tour.

Autumn in New England & Canada: Montréal to Boston

Autumn is a spectacular time to visit eastern Canada and New England, as the air gets crisp and the leaves begin to change colors. Explore the remarkable architecture and rich culture of Montréal, the largest French-speaking city in the world after Paris, then take in the timeless charms and historic treasures of Québec City’s Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You’ll also visit Prince Edward Island National Park, home of tranquil Cavendish and the idyllic farmstead that inspired L. M. Montgomery’s childhood literary classic, Anne of Green Gables.

Eastern Seaboard Explorer: Colonial America and Cultural Capitals

Dive into the multifaceted roots of America as you journey along the Eastern Seaboard, from the crystalline waters of The Bahamas, where Columbus first set foot in the New World, through Florida’s island fortifications, up to Virginia’s earliest colonies, and all the way to Boston's Revolutionary sites. Visit Martha’s Vineyard off the coast of Cape Cod, a vacation spot both quaint and glamorous, and see famous gingerbread houses in Oak Bluffs, the elegant enclave of Edgartown, and more. In Newport you’ll explore the most opulent of its famous Gilded Age mansions, an Italianate-style residence set along famous Bellevue Avenue.

Coastal Explorations: Canada & New England

This sensational journey into Canada kicks off in Boston, where the superlative backdrop to the city’s colonial charm, sets the stage for your introduction to famous New England enclaves like Cambridge, historic Lexington and Concord, and Maine’s Acadia National Park. Discover the fascinating UNESCO World Heritage Site of Lunenburg, with its Old Town still preserved just as British colonists laid it out.
