NB, Nova Scotia, and PEI this summer or fall

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are planning on taking our first trip to NB, Nova Scotia, and PEI this summer or fall. We'll be flying from Alberta and rent a car to drive around there, plan to have two weeks in total time (hopefully will have 11 to 12 days to spend in these three provinces). Major interests are scenery drives, mild day hikes, local histories.
Hope someone can help with the following questions.
1. Which city should we fly to, considering the frequency of flights from Toronto (our transfer place), the local car rental prices, and less overlapped drive once there?
2. Which month is the best time to go? - Do they have the full fall color as in Quebec and Ontario, and if yes, will it be late September or early October? Will that time also be good for visiting Cape Breton and other places? Is July or August too crowded with travelers? (Some say May or June is too cold there, is that true?)
3. Should we also consider visiting Acadia NP in Maine? Is Acadia NP similar to Cape Breton or are they totally different?
Thanks!
