Getting a taste of the maritime provinces

Jump to last reply

I have never been out on the east coast of Canada, so I thought I would go there for one long weekend, probably mid-October. After some reading, I think I want to fly into Halifax to start my 3-day adventure. I picked Halifax as a base because of the proximity of the sights that I have interest in. Hopefully, my itinerary gives me a taste of the maritimes.

I intend to hire a car and follow this itinerary:
Day 1 - arrive in Halifax in the morning. Drive to Peggy's Cove and hang out there for a couple of hours. After lunch, drive to Lunenburg and walk around the town. Either overnight in Lunenburg or head up to Wolfville.
Day 2 - see Cape Blomidon at noon (high tide) and again at around 6:30pm (low tide and sunset). I can spend some time early morning in Wolfville and afternoon in Grand-Pre.
Day 3 - this is still wide open

First, is this itinerary feasible? Second, what can I do with day 3? I'll probably need to be at the airport by 6pm. Suggestions are greatly appreciated!
