Nova Scotia in 10 days - Roundtrip from Bangor, ME

Jump to last reply

I will start out by saying that I know that we can't fit it all in.

Arriving Bangor, Maine airport late afternoon June 18th, departing mid-day June 28th.
Priorities: scenic seascape drives, lighthouses, seafood, tidal bore observations, perhaps some hiking, some history...

My first draft at a driving route, based on "must-sees" found here and elsewhere, focused on Nova Scotia: Bangor-Saint John-Truro-Port Hawkesbury-Cheticamp-Ingonish-Baddeck-Halifax-Lunenburg-Digby-Saint John (by ferry)-Bangor resulted in 1,284 miles. Probably a bit ambitious.

I'm looking for suggestions for making this a pleasurable trip that hits on our objectives without finding ourselves simply driving long distances from place to place.
