Looks like I need to look into the rental car now and plan to get to Peggy's Cove 1st. That should allow all the rest of the time to take the FRED in and around Halifax for the...

Another Manhattan port area ?

Do you know of a liquor store that's close to the pier area? I need to get my bottle of wine :) and I'll be coming from the Midtown East/Central Park area.

There's going to be 6 of us total. I wanted to use Southwest Airlines, if possible because I have free flights. Just trying to consider all the options.

We did both of these on our last Alaska. Both excellent and very different scenery. We're going again next year and will likely return to the WP RR tour with the resto of our group.
