I'm planning a trip to Cape Breton for our honeymoon at the end of September. I've found some wonderful little cottages in Margarees by Chimney Corner beach where I'm so excited to stay. I was wondering, though, what anyone would recommend flight-wise. We're flying in from KY and I wasn't quite sure if it would be better to fly into Halifax and rent a car to drive the rest of the way or fly into Sydney and then rent a car? Either way, we'd have to drive a while and I like the idea of saving some money by flying into Halifax. Just wondering what others thought?
Also any recommendations on things to do in the area while we're there? We plan on doing plenty of hiking and walks, eating at The Dancing Goat I've heard is so great, beach. I love homemade things- blankets, pottery, any kind of craft- are there shops like that in the area? Any ideas would be kindly appreciated. Thank you!!
