July 15 to 27, 2018

Cruise from Toronto to Chicago, plying the waters of Lakes Huron, Ontario, Michigan and Erie. Faculty leader Gavin Wright, whose research focuses on the relationship between natural resources and economic development, leads our group.

Freshwater “Pearl. The “Thirty Thousand Islands” in picturesque Georgian Bay are even more impressive from a private balcony, a feature of every cabin aboard the deluxe Pearl Mist. Ponchos provided. Get up close and personal with thundering Niagara Falls aboard the Maid of the Mist, which takes us right up to the face and into the thundering mists of this natural wonder. No cars allowed. Relive a bygone era of horse-drawn carriages and opulent Victorian homes at Mackinac Island. Bask in the sun a while on the world’s largest “front porch” at the island’s historic Grand Hotel.
