Ottawa to East Coast Maritimes

Jump to last reply

My family is thinking of driving from Ottawa to east coast next June/July. Our dates are June 26 - July 10th. So we have about 14 days overall to do the trip.
I have read up a bit on different routes but am a total newbie when it comes to what to do, where to stop and everything like that. This will be our families first trip and longer road trip together. My kids will be 4, 6 and 8 by that time so they may not like driving for 12 hours a day. We have done 7 hours in a day before this past summer driving back from Hampton Beach and they were okay with that but we made many stops for food, washroom and shopping as well so it took about 10 hours for what should have been 7 hours. They can do about 4 hours straight before the need for washroom and food break. With that being said, help me figure out an itinerary. We have been told to change it up and drive through Canada on the way there and through the US on the way back. That suits us fine as we can do some tax free shopping in New Hampshire hopefully.
I also don't have an exact destination in mind for the east coast as I don't know anything about it. All I know is we have been told not to miss out on PEI. Are there nice beaches to spend a day where we can even body board in waves? My son just discovered that this summer while in Hampton beach and loves it. Our family will be flying out from Vancouver to meet us on the coast somewhere once we decide what we are doing.

I figure we will take the first two days to get there and last two days to get back.
I'm trying to see if it would make sense to head off after work on Thursday June 25, 2015 so we can get about 5 hours of driving out of the way.

Suggestions.?
Thanks
