You are deffinatly going to be busy. I think you can do it, but you won't be relaxed at all when you get home. I personally would spend a little more time in Halifax, but hey, it is just another city if you are used to big cities.

We're also going to the Maritimes from Toronto, but our trip is much less busy. I had to laugh when I saw your itinerary. It'll be our first trip, and I was really tempted to do a lot more, but my husband already thinks I'm pushing it!

I guess it all depends on what you want. If you find it too busy, you can always eliminate something.

We're looking at it this way - this doesn't have to be our only trip to the Maritimes - if we like it, we'll be back.

If you go to Cavendish, PEI, take some time to take a walk on the magnificent beach there! It's one of the nicest beach in the world with it's soft sand and red rocks. Try to stay for the sunset.

I think your New Glasgow to Sydney to Louisburg to Halifax leg is very ambitious. Other than the stops for the night I think you'll spend 80% of your time in the car. That is a LOT of driving, bearing in mind that you are on twisty, 2 lane roads through Cape Breton. Your average speed will be low. And when the the sign says 'Slow to 40 kph' SLOW TO 40 KPH!

Beautiful country there (I'm from NS originally), slow down & enjoy it.
