I have read many of the posts in the forum asking for suggestions for itineraries. Some parts of the responses fit and some don't, so figured I would impose for a "customized" itinerary suggestion. I have the official travel guide and the problem is that everything sounds exciting. This will be our first visit to NS, although we spent a week in the Bar Harbor ME area at the same time last year and just loved it.
We are flying into Halifax on Saturday, Sept. 6th arriving mid-afternoon. We depart early on Saturday, Sept. 13th. Our plan was to drive out of Halifax after arrival but which way to go. We wanted to return to Halifax on Thursday night in order to give us a full day on Friday and be convenient for our early morning departure on Saturday.
But where to go?? We are in late 50s, not athletes, but reasonable walks and mild-moderate activities are within our capabilities. We enjoy scenic drives, kayak tours, historical points of interest, stopping and relaxing.
If you had this time, how would you spend it? Thanks in advance for your input.
