East Coast Road Trip Suggestions

Jump to last reply

I will be heading to Nova Scotia/New Brunswick and PEI in June. I have a two day conference to attend in Halifax so won't have too much time those days to see anything but plan on staying a couple extra days but will be a busy schedule! I've never been out East before so trying to plan the best I can!

Sunday afternoon
- tour Halifax
- stay in Halifax, hotel already booked

Monday
- rent a car from Halifax airport estimate around 9am and drive to Moncton
- visit Magnetic Hill and Hopewell Rocks
- either stay in Moncton or take Ferry to PEI later that day?
(this is what I'm undecided about with time, I think would be better to drive to PEI that evening to be there first thing on Tuesday morning to start my day... )
If I stay in Moncton I'm looking at the Magnetic Hill Winery/B&B

Tuesday
- tour PEI
- stay in PEI (looking at the Kindred Spirits B&B in Cavendish) - was thinking of doing a tour more in the Charlottetown/east side of the island then doing Cavendish area in the afternoon and staying there

Wednesday
- drive back from PEI via the bridge to Halifax, flight out at 4:45pm

Does this seem like a reasonable agenda for a cram packed few days?! I'm young and traveling on my own so I don't mind the driving/busy schedule just trying to decide mainly if I should stay in Moncton or PEI on the Monday evening.
