Nova Scotia, Cape Breton & St. John's itinerary help

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are in the beginning stages of planning a trip to Nova Scotia and St. John's in 2011, to include Cape Breton (I think we can skip PEI). We are in our mid-30's, like beer & pub grub, traditional Celtic music sessions (but we prefer to be in a pub and have a pint and listen rather than at a contra or square dance). We also like picturesque cities and villages on water (rivers, bay, coast or beaches), some hiking/outdoors, scenic drives, and nice but inexpensive lodging. I don't plan on renting a car for the days spent in Halifax or St. John's but would rent a car to explore the rest of Nova Scotia and Cape Breton.

Should I try and include PEI or is it OK to skip? I assume we'll get plenty of music, culture & pubs in Halifax and St. John's, and the scenery in Nova Scotia & Cape Breton easily equals or exceeds PEI, right?

A tentative itinerary is below. Does it look OK? Could any days be cut out? I'm wondering if I really need to overnight in either Wolfville or Lunenburg?

-Fly from home (Virginia, USA) to Halifax
-3 nights Halifax (music, pubs, culture, etc.)
-rent car
-1 night Mabou, Cape Breton (music, Red Shoe pub, distillery nearby)
-1 night Ingonish area, Cape Breton (beaches, along Cabot Trail)
-1 night Iona area, Cape Breton (river nearby & Cabot Trail)
-1 night Wolfville, Nova Scotia (wineries, college town, Bay of Fundy)
-1 night Lunenburg, Nova Scotia (picturesque small village)
-Return car
-Fly to St. John's Newfoundland - 3 or 4 nights in St. John's (music, pubs, culture, etc.)
-Fly from St. John's to home

thanks!
