PEI and Nova Scotia - Advice for 1 week trip

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are planning an approximate week long trip in the beginning of August this year to PEI and Nova Scotia (1st, but hopefully not last) time. She very much wants to visit PEI, we will be flying from Washington DC to Halifax, and we believe we have to pick either Cape Breton or the south but not both for the other part of the visit, we decided on Cape Breton.

Our initial thoughts which we want to pin down soon.

Day 1: arrive around noon (only non-stop), drive to Sydney

Day 2: Sydney day trips (Louisbourg, ...)

Day 3: Sydney, drive to Ingomish

Day 4: Ingomish area, drive to Inverness

Day 5: Inverness area, ferry to PEI, end up at Charlottetown

Day 6, 7: PEI

Day 8: PEI, drive to Halifax (if we get there earlier enough, wander around)

Day 9: early flight (only non-stop), back to DC


Interested in any thoughts, comments, suggested 'must-see's. Also if we added one more day where would you spend it?

Thanks in advance.

- Dan
