Nova Scotia/PEI trip

Jump to last reply

Hello all. We'd appreciate any feedback on the tentative schedule for our Nova Scotia/PEI trip.
We're landing at Halifax 11:30PM on July 2 and leaving 5PM Sunday, July 8.
Our tentative plan is to stay in Halifax the first nite, pick up a rental car in the morning and drive to Baddeck. Stay there 3 nites and see as much of the Cabot Trail and other sights as possible.
Early Friday drive to Pictou, catch the ferry to PEI and stay there Fri and Sat nites.
Our biggest question is getting from PEI to Halifax on Sunday to catch our 5PM flight. Is this doable or do you see a problem? How about the allocation of days at each place?
We're 60ish and like to avoid long drives as much as possible. We're more into seeing the sights, relaxing on the beach, enjoying music, and soaking up as much of the local ambience as we can.
We'd appreciate your ideas and would love to hear some of the things you think we must see or do while we're there. It's not fair that a 5 day work week lasts so much longer than a 7 day vacation!
Thanks very much for your input. We can't wait to get there.
