I am planning a trip to Nova Scotia either during last week of Sep or 1st week of Oct. I surely would love to see the Fall colors and explore scenic Nova Scotia. I will be having around 7 - 8 days (maybe 10, if I can stretch a bit); so, I am thinking of visiting Cape Breton (incl. Cabot trail) for 3 days, spend around ~2 days in and around Halifax (incl. Peggy's Cove). Other than the above, I will have another 2 -3 days and I am debating between the two possibilities: i) spend the time near Anapolis Royal, Digby, Yarmouth and Bay of Fundy area (I think, I will be taking the ferry from St John to Digby) or ii) spend 2 - 3 days in PE island. Any suggestions on choosing between Bay of Fundy and PE island? Also, any specific attraction/event I should try out in Nova Scotia during late Sep/early Oct? Any input on probable itinerary and places to see should help me plan my trip.
Thanks very much!
