10 days, 2 kids, a tent, and the Maritimes!

Jump to last reply

Our family (2 parents and kids ages 9 & 6) will drive from Boston via Acadia NP in Maine to spend 8-10 days in NS, NB, & PEI. I last went with my family as a young teen and can't wait to share it with my kids! We hope to save cash by camping as much as possible and prefer car ferries to land routes whenever feasible. Must sees are PEI (just read "Anne"), Cabot Trail, Halifax (little history buffs want to see the scene of the explosion), and Fundy tides. We all love history, hiking, sailing, and ocean swims. My challenge is ROUTES, since the Maine to NS ferry of my childhood was discontinued and i know nothing of NB. Suggestions welcome on driving routes, smaller ferries, better campgrounds, and kid-friendly stops along the way. Thanks!!

BTW, our entire trip can run up to 12 days, with the first 2 nights in Acadia in Maine, so 10 days max to go from Maine to Maritimes and back to Boston. I miss that ferry....
