Atlantic Canada- the forgotten part of Canada

Atlantic Canada is the most historic part of North America. Being on the eastern seaboard is was the easiest part to access from Europe and at the same time as the Vikings came to the UK they also landed in Newfoundland. Atlantic Canada comprises of 4 provinces ( calling them states will really upset folks from Canada!), Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. The area was settled by the British and Irish along with the French and we battled for many years with them as to who would control this area and ultimately all of Canada. Until commercial flights to North America Halifax was where all new arrivals landed. The exhibit is well worth a look. Canada as we know it was founded 150 years ago in Prince Edward Island thus adding to its claim to be the historic part of North America. However it is not all about history the Bay of Fundy with the highest tidal range in the world, Gros Morne National Park and the Cabot Trail the iconic drive in the area are all must see things to do. However the warm welcome you get from every person who are pleased just to show you what the area has to offer.
