Took a trip to Nova Scotia with our TT from Pittsburgh Labor Day week 2012. All around had a very good time but too much driving for just 7 days (about 4500 miles round trip). Stayed on Cape Breton Island for the most part. The place gets deserted after Labor Day so not too many people about but the weather was outstanding (upper 70s most of the time). Stayed at CG called MacLeod's Beach Campsite (pronounced McCloud) and loved it!
We enjoyed the Cabot Trail. You'll want to use the toad if you have one (too many ups and downs). You will also want to take a whale watching cruise (don't believe the talk that you can see them from the shore). Don't expect to see any wildlife but we did manage to see a bald eagle on the cliffs.
You will also enjoy the Bay of Fundy especially at low tide right when the tides start to move in. Do not bother with the Tidal Bore.
We spent a day in Halifax. Nice place when something's going on but stay away from the William O'Keefe's Brewery tour unless you like to spend $15/person to see bad actors in period costumes trying to entertain you in the bowels of what was once a brewery but converted into a shopping mall. Stick to the pub next door instead!
Warning: The roads in NS are not good. Keep to the main roads. Secondary roads are narrow and not well kept (lots of potholes). Tertiary roads can be classified as jeep trails.
