NS or NB or NFLD

We are planning on taking a bus tour to the east coast from Ontario. With so many options, I am not sure which provinces and or areas would be the best to visit. I would be very thnakful for any suggestions. I would love to see whales!

Just keep in mind that Newfoundland is an 8 hour ferry ride from Nova Scotia and it is very expensive if you are taking a car on the ferry. I spent 9 days in Nova Scotia last year and loved every minute of it. I didn't feel that I had missed anything by not going to other provinces.

I have heard NFLD is awsome. I have never been. I have seen some bus tours that do both NS and NB. If you could do that then that would be cool. Both of those provinces have a lot to do. I actually find us a lot alike. That is why they group PEI, NB, and NS as the Maritimes. We have all go ocean, seafood, beaches and whale watching. NS has a major city, with casino's, Cape Breton is amazing, and Fort Louisburg is great. NB has wonderful scenery, Hopewell Rocks which is where you can walk on the ocean floor, I am sure a tour would include St. Andrews which is a historic resort town.

I think no matter which one you pick, you won't be sorry. I don't know as much about NFLD, but any one I have ever met from there have been so friendly, and funny. Just watch out when they Screech you in...

Just to clear up what Carrie said, its not an 8 hour ferry ride to NF.

From North Sydney, NS to Argentia, NF (a two hour drive from St. John's) the ferry ride is 14 hours and costs $270 for two people a nd a car one way.

From North Sydeny to Port-aux-basques, NF it is a 5-6 hour ferry with a 10 hour drive to St. John's, and it costs about $120 one way for a car and two people.

It is well worth that to visit!

Very partial to my home province of New Brunswick because of the beaches and the Lobster...If you can stop in Shediac you won't regret it.

I am always curious when these old posts re-surface! How does that happen??? The original post is almost 3 years old!
