We did a trip to the Canadian Maritimes in 2013. I highly recommend the Cabot Trail, Fortress Louisburg, Peggy's Cove and Lunenburg. If you're going through New Brunswick to get there, be sure to see the Hopewell Rocks at Bay of Fundy National Park.

Marconi museum. The tidal bore in the bay of fundy. A fresh lobster roll in a local restaurant. All of the trails. Suggest you go clockwise. Sail lake Bras d'Or, Fortress of Lewisbourg. Peggy Cove lighthouse (plan lunch). Cape Breton Highland Natl Park, Glenora Inn & Distillery in Glenville, Alexander Graham Bell museum in Baddeck.
That should keep you busy...

Edit:
On your way back consider taking the ferry from NS to PEI and spend a week there too. Take the bridge back to NB and you only pay for the bridge crossing...

If you are driving up the coast, stopping at Fundy Bay NP is on the way and well worth a few days. We stopped at the entrance to Fundy Bay and the black flies were thick, the campground was fine, had a campfire every night (July 9, 2013).

Also stop in Alma at Kelly's bake shop Kelly's Bake Shop, Home of the "Sticky Bun" - Great little place in Alma, NB - a must stop by cdrdwd, on Flickr

Cabot Trail is amazing. We did it on the wife's CanAm Spyder. It was just spectacular. On the Bay of Fundy we stayed right on the coast at The Cove Oceanfront Campground. Just unreal area. Have fun!

If you are going to Hope Well Rock there is a nice CG just outside the park. It is Ponderosa Pines. Have stated there several time and have seen a moose on the tidal flats as well as a black bear. When on Cape Breton Island Adventure East CG is a nice place to stay, also the KOA North Sydney have a great view of the inlet to the Bra d'or lake. Both CG can be used as a base while touring CB Island. As stated the Cabot Trail is a must see as well as Fortress Louisburg. While on CB Island you should go to Glace Bay and visit the miners museum. During the summer months the Men of the Deeps practice at the museum. In Mabou CB you could have lunch at the Red Shoe Pub (owned and operated by the Rankin family). If you do go around the Cabot Trail there is a small diner in Neil's Harbour that offer great food, we always enjoyed their crab rolls.

That's the other campground we stayed at. Thanks for reminding me caper. KOA North Sydney. Had the place to ourselves early season. Parked our RV sideways across a few sites for no additional cost... well... a 30 pack of Coors Light did help! The owners were so nice.

We are from there and return every summer for vacation. Yes...by all means Cabot Trail although I always recommend this in the fall when the leaves are awesome. Camp in Beddeck and do the trail with your toad. No fun hauling a motorhome along that route although many do just fine. Don't leave out the south Shore. We stay near Halifax (Woodhaven RV Park ) always include All the scenic beach areas along the south coast....visit Peggy s cove and beaches from Woodhaven as the fog sometimes lingers hen camping g right on lighthouse route ...cool at night. Hope this helps and enjoy!

I agree with Itat... We did a cross Canada trip in 2011. Here is a link to our blog posts from NS (ten of them). Also Kejimkujik National Park and Kejimkujik Seaside National Park, Mahone Bay, Annapolis Royal is a quaint little town,

You will have lots of fun, people are very friendly and the food is fantastic. I think the Bay of Fundy is the most impressive with 50ft tides.

Cheers,

If you are a fisherman take a light pole and get your fishing license. There were some really beautiful ponds close to the road in cape Breton that you will want to stop at. I don't know where you are driving from but 1 week will not be long enough. Coming from Rochester NY we planned a 2 week trip and ran out of time. Did a second 2 week trip a few years later and still haven't seen everything. We are going a third time now that we are retired and no time limit. It is beautiful.
