We're in the process of planning a 15 night trip to Nova Scotia (incl CB) and PEI next summer (late June/early July). We're flying to Halifax to maximize our time down east and will be renting a car of course. We don't hike but wouldn't be against doing a scenic walk or two. Our main interests are sightseeing (I love taking pictures), eating seafood (esp. lobster) and just generally enjoying the people and the culture. This is what we've come up with so far, any comments or suggestions on where to stop, what to see or where to eat are welcome!
Day 1 - land in Halifax mid morning, drive to Guysborough along the coast. We'll be staying at Seawind Landing
Day 2 - drive to Baddeck
Day 3 - Baddeck to Dingwall
Day 4 - to Pleasant Bay early for the morning whale watch. After the whale watch head to Glenora Distillery for the tour and to stay the night
Day 5 - drive to Pictou and take the ferry to PEI where we'll stay for 4 nights
Day 9 - PEI to the Pictou/NewGlasgow area where we'll hopefully meet up with some friends who live in the area
Day 10 - drive to Wolfville, do a winery tour
Day 11 - drive to Digby
Day 12 - drive to East Ferry for a whale watch, overnight in Digby again
Day 13 - drive to Lunenburg,either along the coast or through the interior, depending on how we feel about driving at that point?? Do the Ironworks distillery tour, hopefully see the Bluenose if she's up and running by then...
Day 14 & 15 - dowtown Halifax, take the ferry to Dartmouth and just generally relax. Maybe the Alexander Keith's tour??
Day 16 - fly home
We're covering a lot of territory, but we never really have too many long days of driving...
Thanks in advance!
