PEI and Nova Scotia

We have a week planned for a visit in June. Where should we go, what should we not miss? Thanks.

You could spend a week in PEI alone and not see it all. Seriously.
We stayed at Cavendish Beach Campground in Prince Edward Island National Park as our base camp to do day trips. If you visit North Point and East Point lighthouses……you get a diploma for travelling from one end to another and you get to see a lot of the countryside of PEI.

Here’s a couple of things of interest on PEI

https://www.worldbeachguide.com/cana...ging-sands.htm

https://www.tripadvisor.ca/Attractio...rd_Island.html

Don’t miss touring Charlottetown

And then there’s the towns with lighthouses to see……

For Nova Scotia…..a week alone for Cape Breton and especially the Cabot Trail.
Did I mention lobster????

Ya, I'm heading to New Foundland when the ol' lady retires. I plan on 2 weeks in Nova Scotia and 2 weeks on New Foundland. No way doing it in June though!

If you gave us some idea of they try of activities you enjoy I could have other sites, like do you enjoy hiking, fishing, boat tours or just driving around to see the sights?

Cabot Trail

Bay of Fundy (Highest Tides in the World)

Here's something to consider for entering or leaving PEI. It can save on a few hours of driving and it was a good experience : https://www.ferries.ca/

On PEI we made this our base. It wasn't exactly centrally located but the location had a number of nightly events around a communal campfire. https://www.pc.gc.ca/en/pn-np/pe/pei-ipe/activ/camping then scroll down to Stanhope Campground. It's not that far off from the regular tourist shops and "the Gables". "Gables" was a must see stop for one in our group.

Don't miss Historic Fortress Louisburgh, if you are a history buff. But worth the look even if you aren't. Also, Lunenburg and Halifax. Depending on your travel route, Fundy National Park.

All must see places in my opinion.

I just want to hang out with Canadians and sing songs in French, maybe get drunk and high at Sunnyvale Trailer Park.

A guy from “Joisey” singing in French. Seriously?

That could send relationships back a couple of hundred years……if anyone could even understand it.

When we went to PEI and Nova Scotia in 2013, our must-see places were:

PEI
Confederation Bridge
Green Gables Heritage Place (if you enjoyed Anne of Green Gables)
Province House in Charlottetown

Nova Scotia
Cabot Trail
Fortress Louisbourg National Historic Site
Halifax
Lunenberg
Peggy’s Cove

If you’re a hockey fan you may want to make the pilgrimage to Cole Harbour next door to Halifax where Sidney Crosby grew up.

If you’ll be going through New Brunswick, stop at Hopewell Rocks.

I wished we had twice as much time as we had allotted to tour New Brunswick, PEI and NS. We hope to go back again soon to see all the places we missed the first time.

If you want to sing in French you’d be best to go to Quebec or New Brunswick. In Nova Scotia, you’ll be able to find some fine folks to teach you Gaelic if you take in a céilidh.

No problem singing french in Cheticamp NS, just a short drive from the Gaelic College, all while you are touring the Cabot Trail and visiting Fortress Louisbourg. Now if you want to get drunk take the ferry from Nova Scotia and spend some time in Newfoundland.

This is EXACTLY what I plan do do once wife retires and we have more time to travel. Not a bad deal, take the ferry overnight with a room to sleep, wake up in Newfoundland! I can sing along with the Clancy Bros or Chieftans like nobody's business, but can't speak Gaelic. I strike up my bagpipes when I don't know the words!

You'd be surprised what us Jersey folk are capable of. Tell you what, you name the song, in whichever language you prefer, and I'll learn it. Next time we rally, we'll have a sing-off and let the other FROGS determine who did it better!

Thanks all for the info. We are basically interested in seeing the sights. Now we are worried about another COVID related border shutdown. Plan on making reservations in the spring.

Then "itat" hit some of the best spots above. I'm in hopes the COVID restrictions will removed before summer
