If all else fails and time runs out - see Cape Breton. The most beautiful place with the most wonderful people.

We've been thinking about do that, maybe even this year, but think anything less than three weeks north of the border would be rushing it.

Nova Scotia held our interest the most with Halifax, Peggies Cove, Digby, Hall's Harbor, Hopewell Rocks, the Ganong Chocolate Factory, Keith's Brewery, Cabot trail and lots lots more. If you are planning to visit Nova Scotia you will need more time than you think.

We spent 6 weeks thru Ontario, NB, PEI, Nova Scotia and it was not enough.

Peggy's Cove has a lovely monument erected in memory of the victims of the Swiss Air Flight 111 Crash Sept. 2, 1998.

I, for personal reasons, have not been back to that area since we as MP's were dispatched to assist with the recovery for that tragic event but that coast line is amazing in almost any weather.

I have heard that monument is very well done.

Leave with a full tank of gas and enjoy the views. Also try to take a few of the side trips along the way.
I found a pic of that ferry taken on our trip.

if you take the trail counter clockwise it puts you on the coastal side and not the mountain side of the viewing. if there is a lot of traffic its better to be on the outside of the road than the inside.
food for thought

Born and Raised Just out side Halifax and still live in the area if you have any questions. A few campgrounds very close to the city that we like to go to for short trips and to dust off the cobwebs.

www.shubiecampground.com
koa.com/campgrounds/halifax/
Nova Scotia Provincial Parks


All with in 45 mins of the city great for day trips to Peggy's cove, Citadel Hill pier 21.

If your heading to Cape Breton:

Cabot trail is a must as well as Fortress Louisburg and if your into technology history the Alexander Graham Bell Museum
Parks Canada - Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site - Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site

Lots of good suggestions in the thread
