I have been reading your forums for a while and already have several ideas, I would now like your input. My husband and I are flying into Portland, ME on July 21. We will be renting car and staying a couple nights with relatives. (already verified with rental car ok to travel to Canada). Here is where I need help.
July 23 - leaving early and driving to Saint John's NB catching ferry at 4 pm for Digby. Stay in Digby overnight.
July 24 - whale watching is priority. Also interested in Fort Royal and Fort Ann National sites. If time small hike to balancing rock. Leave for Halifax.
July 25 - Halifax
July 26 - leave Halifax afternoon for drive to CB
July 27 - CB
July 28 - CB
July 29 - finish wish list of CB then drive to Bay of Fundy
July 30 - Bay of Fundy
July 31 - finish up Bay of Fundy and start drive back to Maine staying night in ? Bar Harbor or Boothbay Harbor.
August 1 - leave in evening to return to NC and work ugh
We are in our 40's like history, unique shops and B&B's. Interested in some hiking, possible kayaking and the beach is not important to us. We know this is not enough time to see and do everything, but we would like a taste of each area.
Is it better to stay in Halifax or Dartmouth. If Dartmouth can you get to best areas of Halifax without car.
How should I divide time in CB all in one place and take day trips or split up. Things that we would like to do are Skyline Trail, Alexander Bell Museum and Fortress of Louisbourg.
Any comments and info are appreciated. Is this even doable? Thanks in advance
