Vacation Ideas for Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island

This summer I will be vacationing in Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. I am looking for places that people have been to that are "must see" as well as any tips you may have.

Thanks,

Hi

We went to Nova Scotia and PEI last summer and I really liked PEI the best. They have a Ann of Green Gables show and we stayed the whole day there. They do parts of in the books and it was fabulous. The wax museum was a rip off, the people didnt look good.

I was raised in the Maritimes and head east any chance I get. In PEI- don't miss Green Gables if you have ever read the books. Charlottetown is full of Canadian history sites, there is a cool "touristy " mall right at the end of the bridge when you first hit the island that also had live entertainment when we were there a couple of years ago. Take time to walk along the wonderful ocean beaches, and try to find a lobster supper- usually put on by churches and oh so good! The scenery in both provinces is outstanding.

You can drive all over PEI in a day- NS is a bit bigger, so where to go depends on how long you've got. If you have time to travel the Cabot Trail- take lots of film. The views are incredible. The Alexander Graham Bell museum in Baddeck in cool to go to , at the NS/ NB border there were bagpipers at the tourist information center when we were there. Halifax is full of stuff to do, including the Bluenose, the Maritime Museum, great shopping, wonderful food and Citadel Hill. Peggys' Cove is world renowned and gets millions of visitors. Check out both provinces websites for good ideas and have a wonderful trip

Go on the internet for Nova Scotia and order their vacation magazine. It is the finest and most complete of any area we have visited. DON'T MISS LOUISBOURG (spelling might be wrong). Plan on a day there.
