How's my itinerary for NS, NB & PEI trip?

Jump to last reply

We are planning a driving trip through NS, NB and PEI in June. I have been reading this and other forums to come up with an itinerary. I would appreciate any input as to whether this is too ambitious (we are expert roadtrippers) or if we are spending too long in any one spot. BTW, we have purposely eliminated Cape Breton, so please do not suggest we visit. Also, if you have any recommendations for good, clean and reasonably priced hotels please advise. THANK YOU.
Day 1 -- arrive late in Halifax (overnight in Halifax)
Day 2 -- tour Halifax (overnight in Halifax)
Day 3 -- drive to PEI via ferry (overnight in Charlottetown ???)
Day 4 -- tour PEI (overnight in Charlottetown ???)
Day 5 -- drive to NB (Fundy coast) via Confederation Bridge with a stop in Shediac for lunch (overnight around Riverside Albert or Alma)
Day 6 -- tour Hopewell Rocks and Cape Enrage (overnight around Riverside Albert or Alma)
Day 7 -- tour Fundy National Park, sea caves and Fundy Trail (overnight St. Martins)
Day 8 -- tour Saint John (overnight Saint John)
Day 9 -- ferry to Digby (overnight Digby)
Day 10 -- drive NS Lighthouse Route (overnight Shelburne)
Day 11 -- drive to Halifax with stops in Lunenberg and Peggy's Cove (overnight at Halifax airport hotel)
Day 12 -- early flight home

*** We had tossed around the idea of skipping the pricey Saint John-Digby ferry. On that trip we would reverse the trip somewhat and go from Halifax around the western coast of NS to the PEI ferry, then the rest of the itinerary would remain the same, except we would drive straight back from Saint John to Halifax. Is this crazy to spend all that time in the car just to save the $200 cost of the ferry?
