I would like to drive to Halifax early September and stay in the area for 3 nights, then up to the Glace Bay area and then stay in Baddeck for at least 2 nights and do the Cabot trail. There is a small group of us so we are trying to stay within a budget. I haven't found many deals in Halifax so am looking for a place close to the city but I don't know where to look to find safe, clean, affordable but easy access to the area attractions. Any suggestions? I am also curious about a nice B & B near Glace Bay or the area. Thanks for any comments you may have.
