Nova Scotia Trip Ideas

Jump to last reply

Hi,

So I am planning a trip out east with my boyfriend this summer, and really want it to be a good experience.

We are from Toronto Area, and planning to drive.

Our Itinerary will look SOMETHING like this:

Day 1: Drive drive drive... stop about an hour past Quebec City

Day 2: More drive drive drive... stop in Sydney, NS (I get that this is lots of driving for two days, about 10-12 hours each day, but I'd rather take a slower drive on the way back when we are tired.

Day 3: Head do Fortress of Louisbourg for morning, and Miners Museum on the way back to Sydney.

Day 4/5: Spend on the Cabot trail.

Day 6-12: Spend in Halifax, and doing day trips (ie Peggy's cove, Lunenburg, Drive the Eastern Shore)

Day 13-15: Bay of Fundy area (both the NS side and NB side).

Then day 16-17: Driving back (stop in Montreal to visit my brother)


My biggest question is while in Halifax, what good day trips are there to take? Where are good hiking/scenary areas, and where are good places for food? Also if that itinerary sounds OK?

Thanks so much!
