We went to the Maritimes in 2013 but unfortunately didn't have time to go to Newfoundland. These were the places on our "must see" list (in the order we visited them):

Hopewell Rocks, NB
Confederation Bridge from NB to PEI
Cavendish, PEI (Anne of Green Gables Village)
Charlottetown, PEI
Cabot Trail, Cape Breton, NS
Fortress Louisbourg, Cape Breton, NS
Halifax, NS
Peggy's Cove, NS
Lunenburg, NS

We also spent a couple days in Quebec City on the way there.

To avoid Montreal traffic, 401 will become Hwy 20 in Quebec. Before you get to Montreal follow Hwy 30 south (small toll road) but gets you on the south shore and meets up with the 20 around Boucherville

I used to go camping here when I was a kid, lots of great memories, it would be the first place I would go when I go back.
It was a long time ago hopefully it's still a nice place to camp.

Toured the beaches and the city, took the Confederation Bridge back to N.B. ($46.00 return trip). Saw the Tidal Bore near Moncton and stayed at Ponderosa Pines CG near Hopewell Rocks on the Bay of Fundy. Back through Moncton to Nova Scotia , eventually to North Sydney for the short ferry to Port aux Basques NL. Had reserved at Cheesman PP to avoid driving in moose country at night.
Scenery on way to Gros Morne is fabulous! Stayed at a small B&B/CG in Cow Head (north edge of Gros Morne Park.
Headed east to a great CG (Sanger Memorial) in Grand Falls - Windsor. Nice birch trees, roomy sites. On to Twillingate and Bonavista Bay looking for ice burgs (in July). A night in Terra Nova National Park and then to Pippy Park CG in Saint Johns. Visited the city and Signal Hill, and the "jelly bean" houses all painted different colours. On to Argentia and aboard the long ferry (overnight trip) back to North Sydney. Excellent ferry trips both ways. The long one is bigger with more features. We had a double berth both ways which was very restful.
North Sydney to Halifax West KOA for a few days. Visited Halifax, Pier 21, downtown, etc. Stopped at Peggy's Cove and Lunenburg, Port Royal and Fort Royal (built by the French).
From Halifax back to N.B. And stop a Mactaquac PP, west of Fredericton (a beautiful old Loyalist city). Back to R du Loup and then home in Montreal.
We reserved all stops long before the trip. NL can be very cold even in July, bring all weather gear.
We were out for three weeks, could easily be twice that to see more. We know N.B. but wanted to see PEI and NL this time.
Great trip, Sunseeker worked well all the way. Never realized how hilly that part of the country is!

That's insane!

We spent three weeks on PEI alone (and not a single day just "on the beach"), and we've been in NL for a week and have only made it up to Corner Brook from the short ferry at Port aux Basque. I don't know how everyone does the Maritimes so quickly... I guess we're just slow.

Following this thread because it is something we may consider for next year - although it's a long way from AB so way may cut it short and head to NY and the US NE coastal states.

Maritimes Frog registration is now open. I know of 3 knuckle heads that are planning on going.

What could go wrong?

Well come on down as there is a lot to see. I retired to Nova Scotia and last year we did a NS, NB and PEI tour and had a great old time. Expanded it to Ottawa, Montreal and then Quebec City for good measure! From what we were told last year we are researching the Gaspe Bay Area this summer.

Tell me more please. Where and when is the rally in the Maritimes?

Canadian Maritimes

We did the Maritimes last summer. Really enjoyed every moment. Take the time to visit Newfoundland & Labrador. It was the highlight of the trip. Even got to kayak around an iceberg.

Here is a thread on our trip. Nova Scotia, Newfoundland & Labrador Trip
