"A travelogue extolling the virtues of New England as a vacation spot. The film shows people swimming at York Beach; visiting a lighthouse; going deep-sea fishing on the 'Pearl' with Captain Brewer and visiting Bald Head Cliff for clams, and Cape Neddick for a close-up look at marine life. The tourists appearing in the film may be the Crawley family. York Beach is located in Maine."

"Prince Edward Island, the 'Abegweit' of the Micmac Indians, holds holiday attractions for all ages. Approaching the Island's national park, the film pauses at Charlottetown to recall the Confederation Conference there in 1864. In the park, picnic parties gather in woodland glades, while beyond the golf course, Green Gables Farm reminds us of the childhood classic. Nearby the angler seeks the crafty trout, and below, shining sands beckon youth and age to an invigorating sea-dip."
