Help needed: Attempting to explore the best of Halifax and area in 3 days

Jump to last reply

My husband, 2 1/2 year old son and I are planning a trip to Canada's East coast. We are coming from Ontario. I am researching the trip slowly and have started with Halifax. In this post I am looking for input on the first part of our trip. We are planning on coming in July and will likely fly into Halifax and rent a car. Through my research here is what I have tentatively planned thus far, looking for feedback and tips to improve our experience. We are looking for scenic drives and locations, beaches, easy walking trails (stroller accessible) and anything else that might be enjoyable for a family with a toddler.
- Day 1: Fly into Halifax rent a car. Spend time exploring the city's downtown including the waterfront and boardwalk. Stay downtown Halifax for one night.

- Day 2: Drive from Halifax to Peggy's Cove (will take suggestions on where to stop along this drive)
Continue drive to Lunenburg (possibly checking out Queensland beach and Mahone Bay on the way). Stay overnight in and explore Lunenburg.

- Day 3: This is where I am stuck.....at some point we are going to continue our trip from this point to Cape Breton and then onto PEI. On Day 3 I am not sure where we should go. I am debating between continuing to sight see in the areas of Lunenburg/Halifax OR travelling up to take in the Bay of Fundy (perhaps Burntcoat Head Park?) or perhaps we should leave the Bay of Fundy for another trip. I can't figure out what would make the most sense here before continuing on. The other thing we could do is leave Day 3 for beginning our travel to Cape Breton Island....suggestions please!!!
