Boston-NS-PEI (9 nights)

Jump to last reply

I've been scouring this forum for advise you've given and would like feedback on our itinerary, please. We have a total of 9 nights to do a Boston - Nova Scotia roundtrip. We are two adults & a 12 yo boy. We especially love being by the water. We have friends in Corea, Maine to see our 1st night (about 300 miles from home).

2nd night: Corea, Maine to Moncton or Alma - the goal is to see tides in Bay of Fundy

3rd night: drive to Charlottetown, PEI for an overnight - explore PEI

4th, 5th, 6th & 7th night: stay in Halifax - day trips to Wolfsboro, Truro, Peggy's Cove, Mahone Bay & Lunenburg

8th night: overnight in St John - maybe stop in Parrsboro, if possible

9th night: overnight in Belfast, Maine (where we love)

10th day: drive home to Boston

Originally, I hoped to go to Cape Breton but think it's just too too much driving. I had planned to stay in different places rather than day trips from Halifax but my spouse wants more of a home base.

I'd appreciate any thoughts. Any particular accommodation recommendations for Moncton or Alma? For St John? Looking at the Harbour House in Charlottetown. We'll stay by the harbor in Halifax.
Thank you!
