Trip Report Mini TR - Quebec to Boston

Jump to last reply

Hi, haven't had a minute to do a trip report, but wanted to fill all in on the NB Alma portion of our trip. We had driven from Quebec - Alma with a stop in Grand Falls (stayed at a lovely lakeside lodge). We really liked Alma a lot, it's a very cute town.

We had a magnificent day we were there, clear blue sky, weather in the high 70's, low 80's. We hiked in the Fundy National Park in the AM (brought a picnic lunch), then headed to Hopewell Rocks in the pm as low tide was late that day. We passed the sign for the B&B you're staying in, it's kind of in the middle of nowhere, there weren't a lot of restaurants between Alma/Hopewell Rocks. We liked staying in Alma as it gave us a few choices for dinner that we could walk to. We weren't heading any further North from there though.

Hopewell Rocks was cool, had a fun walk on the "bottom of the ocean" there.

From Alma, we drove to St. George and took the ferry to Deer Isle (sorry it won't be running when you go), it saved us a lot of driving time, then went from Deer Isle - Campobello and saw the Roosevelt home, light house, etc. Couldn't get a room there, so we crossed the bridge into Maine and stayed in Lubec, again a very cute town. Home Port was full, so we stayed at another B&B two blocks away, but had a very nice dinner at the HP and met the owners.

From there, we did head to Boston, but stayed a night in Rockland, Maine as we didn't want to drive 6 hours in one day. It's very doable, but we had the time and choose to "take it slow".

Hope this helps your trip. Let me know if you have any questions.
