We plan a trip early Fall 2013 to sight see NH, VT and the Maritime Provinces. I'm thinking a rental car from Boston through NH and VT would be the easiest way to get to Montreal. From there, I am intrigued by the overnight train to Halifax. So here are a few questions:
1. Is it possible to rent a transnational OW trip, and if so, is the drop charge excessive? I know the Greyhound is a faithful option, but I wonder about security and being able to see foilage along the way.
2. How about a rental car for getting around NB, Nova Scotia and Pr. Edward Is? Also, how does one get to Newfoundland and Labradour? I had seen on an old Via Rail brochure that indicated ferries travel out there. If we’re lucky enough to score that cruise, what would we see in NF and Lab? Would rental cars be readily available?
3. Finally, I assume the optimal way to get back to San Francisco would be a flight from one of the Maritime Provinces through Mtl.
Many thanks in advance [and sorry if this redundant, as my first vanished.
