Travel question - eastern Canada

Thinking ahead to next June, I'll have 2 weeks between a convention in Montreal and joining an Adventure Caravan tour to Newfoundland from Nova Scotia, and would like to stay in Canada. Interested in places to go and see, and parks to stay in in Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Have been in the latter two provinces (plus PEI) on a motorcycle trip several years ago, but not a lot of sightseeing at the time.
Any thoughts and information appreciated.
Thanks.

We loved Peggy's Cove and Halifax in Nova Scotia. Also Cape Breton is great - and the Alexander Graham Bell museum in Baddeck is a great place to spend a rainy afternoon. And of course the Tidal Bore at Tuoro.

For Quebec City (QC), suggest you stay at Camping Transit in Levis: Accueil - Camping Transit
From there, drive to the harbor in Levis & take the ferry over to the old part of QC.

Eh!

You must see the tidal change at the Bay of Fundy in New Brunswick -- stay overnight and catch the high and the low tide -- largest tide change in the world and it's worth seeing.

We also like Prince Edward Island -- reminded us a little of the North Island in New Zealand. Their lobster suppers that they have at several special lobster supper houses you will see driving around the island were really great.

When you're in Nova Scotia, it's worth seeing a Celilah (pronounced Kay-lee, I think, and not sure of the spelling). A number of towns have them in the evening and they are a carryover from Scotland and Ireland.

We liked Quebec City but recommend you only drive your toad into it; stay on the outskirts such as recommended by geeksrus. Make sure you pay attention to the height restrictions in Quebec and can quickly translate a French interpretation of overpass height restriction. We were driving at night into Quebec City from Montreal with our son, who spoke fluent French, and there was an illuminated overpass warning sign in French (only)for construction with a 3 metre height restriction that we didn't realize and started to turn onto the road leading to it, at 90 KM/Hr, just short of the overpass. Fortunately our son caught the sign and got me to make quick turn and avoid going right into the overpass (it wasn't well illuminated).

BTW, did you get the burned countertop smell out of your coach OK after Port Townsend last May? Did it require any special work or replacing anything besides the countertop inserts over the stove? We were just curious and wondered about that.

OldForester - thanks for the info - your post is copied and in my file. As to the small fire, Servicemaster on Whidbey Island did a great job, and a local outfit in Burlington installed the new cooktop (no automatic "on" feature) along with a remote gas on/off relay switch. Shaun Davis made a new solid wood cooktop cover that looks just fine. All in all, job was well done, and all covered by insurance due to disappearing deductible. About $1800.
Thanks for thinking of us.
Geeksrus - thanks for the info on a park to stay at while visiting Quebec, just what I was looking for.
