Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and PEI in 7 Days

Jump to last reply

It'll be two people as a couple travelling to these three Maritime provinces in late August. We fly into Halifax on Sat morning (landing around noon) and flying back out from Charlottetown the following Saturday at around 6pm. We'll be renting a car for the drives.

We're both Maritime newbies who would like to see arts and culture and experience what locals like to do. We would also like to take in some of the major scenery offered in these provinces (Peggy's Cove Bay of Fundy, Cape Breton, etc).

Here's a rough outline on what we have so far. Any suggestions, recommendations, or things to be aware of would be greatly appreciated. The biggest question is, should we take the ferry from NS to PEI or drive through NB. Is it too much to try and cram NB into this trip?

Day 1 (Saturday): Halifax, experience the city life. Will likely stay near downtown. Should we rent a car or is it a walkable experience? Lunch and dinner here, tour of the Alexander Keith's brewery.
Day 2 (Sunday): Peggy's Cove and back to Halifax at night.
Day 3 (Monday): Bay of Fundy (should I do this on the NS or NB side?)
Day 4 (Tueday):Drive out to Cape Breton (Cape Breton Island? - what's the difference). Not planning on camping so where should we eat/stay?
Day 5 (Wednesday) - Day 6 (Thursday): Reserving these days for suggestions and in case Cape Breton is foggy on Tuesday. It'll also depend if people recommend us going through NB to reach PEI or take the ferry.
Day 7 (Friday): Arrive in PEI, Lobster Dinner. Are there car drop offs at the NS point of the ferry and another car pickup on the PEI side? Overnight in Charlottetown.
Day 8 (Saturday): Explore Charlottetown. Lunch. Fly out.
