Nova Scotia & New Brunswick - One Week

Jump to last reply

Andrea and I (Dave) are looking to head to NS & NB for a week in mid-September for a little getaway (after having done the city oriented Paris / London thing in May we're looking for a little more relaxed and natural beauty oriented vaca). We're both pretty healthy so sand, rocks, hikes, and even a little bouldering is not problem.

We're not yet committed to any itinerary but as a draft we're thinking of flying into Sydney, spending time in Cape Breton (Cabot Trail) for 2-3 days and then heading over to New Brunswick and Fundy National Park, Hopewell Rocks, etc.) and then flying out of St. John's or Moncton. Any thoughts anyone may have on the area or approaches or B&B's would be greatly appreciated. Some initial questions include:

Cabot Trail - clockwise or counterclockwise?
Should we also do the Ceilidh Trail or is this largely redundant?
Highlights / things to do in St. John's vs. Moncton as we want to select a base to stay.
We've done a bit of research from the usual travel internet sites (Fodor's etc.) but if you know of any local or less popular internet links you think may be useful that too would be appreciated.

Any other observations you may have...thanks a ton! Looking forward to the visit!!

Andrea & Dave
