Nova Scotia Itinerary Help Needed

Jump to last reply

I could use some help in refining the itinerary for a 13-day trip to NS, with a side trip to NB. My husband and I are 63 and 54 and in good health. We don't care much for cities but like mild hiking, nature, coastlines, harbors, and shopping for local crafts. We'll have a rental car so we're pretty flexible in where we go.

Here is my initial itinerary. Any comments regarding timing, etc., would be appreciated. We won't have time to go everywhere so I'm trying to hit the parts I think we would enjoy the most.

June 28: Arrive Halifax late. Get rental car & check into hotel.
June 29: Sightsee Halifax. Spend night in Halifax.
June 30: Halifax to Liverpool, checking the sights in Peggy's Cove, Mahone Bay, and Lunenburg. Spend night in Liverpool.
July 1: Liverpool to Digby via Rt. 8, hoping to sightsee Liverpool, White Point, and Kemi Seaside. Spend night in Digby.
July 2: Digby to Windsor, trying to sightsee Digby, Annapolis Royal, Hall's Harbour, and Cape Blomidon. Spend night in Windsor area.
July 3: Windsor to Parrsboro. Sightsee Truro, Parrsboro, Cape d'Or, and Cape Chignecto. Spend night in Parrsboro.
July 4, 5, & 6: Parrsboro to New Brunswick and sightsee Hopewell Rocks and Fundy Nat'l Park. Spend nights in Moncton or somewhere closer to Hopewell.
July 7: Moncton to Antigonish, taking Sunrise Trail from New Glasgow to Antigonish. Spend night in Antigonish.
July 8 & 9: Explore Cabot Trail. Spend nights in Baddeck.
July 10: Head toward Halifax down Eastern Shore. Sightsee Sherbrooke Village and Musquodoboit Harbour. Spend night in Musquodoboit Harbour.
July 11: A little morning sightseeing then drop off rental car and leave.

Thanks for comments and advice.
