Been there----------------

Been there done that! Been to P.E.I twice. Loved it both times. One of the
places visited was Lunenburg & Peggys Cove just south of Halifax on
Nova Scotia. These two stops ( At Rugged Browns suggestion) was a plus.
It is amazing at Peggys cove to stand on the out cropping of the granite
rock, view where the "GREAT GLACIER" that covered the area left giant
marks in the stone you are standing on. All the houses are built on solid
granite.

If any one is going to visit, it is a must visit Lunenburg, It is stepping back in the "GREAT TIME MACHINE" as if nothing has changed since the 1800's.
What a great seaport Lunenburg, NS

It is a must trip for a third visit!

Pictures posted are very nice.

teh old fort is amazing. and all the art work and pieces furnishing are originals sent back to France before the English burned it to the ground on the last conquest.
Alexander Graham Bell museum, and the view from the trail.

We try and avoid Peggys Cove at all cost. It is a beautiful spot for anyone else to visit but I was an MP doing recovery from the Swiss Air crash there - so certain things trip me up.

Now if you really want to see fantastic scenery then push on to Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia and do the Cabot Trail. Here's a website to check it outCape Breton Island, Nova Scotia ‚Äď Official Travel Guide - Home

We had a great time up there and whale watching is something not to miss.
Why??????????????????

if you think the bridge to PEI is expensive to leave the island you should try round trip from Saint John to Digby NS with a 34 foot trailer and 3 kids plus DW.

Glad you liked Lunenburg...The "Bounty" for the movie was also build there..now on the bottom of the ocean..& the "Bluenose 11" on our dime Anyone else coming to the area should also visit Mahone Bay just a few Kms away!...J

From the pictures it looks really nice up there. My wife really wants to go to Nova Scotia and surrounding areas. Looks like about a 19 hr drive from where we are in Ohio. 22 to Cape Breton
