Florida to Maine to Nova Scotia...

Currently in our planning stages of our trip to Maine and Nova Scotia. I've read a lot of past threads on Nova Scotia and my "must see" list is getting longer and longer. Time is on our side, so we don't have to hurry…that being said, in your opinion, what are to "don't miss" places we should put on the top of our list??? And, what currency do they use? Visa and MasterCard ok to use? I guess exchange rates will vary… Suggestions on the best months to be up there?
This will be our second trip to Maine…going places we missed on the first trip.
Passports we have, anything special for the dogs? Dog friendly up there? I've had the opportunity to speak with a couple people regarding taking their dogs into Nova Scotia and both people have said different things…hmmm.
I've googled myself silly and always like to hear from the pros…so suggest away..please
Andi

You should have the necessary dog health certificates from your vet. Tell him/her where you are going, and they should know what to do.

And, many neat things to see in the Canadian maritimes. Just off the top of my head; the Alexander Graham Bell museum in Baddeck, Nova Scotia, the Cabot Trail drive around the north end of Cape Breton. Also, there is a bridge to Prince Edward Island.

We visited in 2003, and returning to the area is near the top of our bucket list.

We have been in the Maritimes so many times, and occassionally spending the entire summer there, for us it's almost like a second home. Nova Scotia parks used to be pretty much confined to July and August, but some of them they are now opening as early as mid May, through to Canadian Thanksgiving in mid-October. You have to be very careful about the lack of facilities in private parks, some which don't even have a dump station.

While Prince Edward Island is good for an overnight trip, and Cape Breton Island a whole weekend; you really haven't started your trip to the Maritimes until you arrive in Newfoundland, Gross Morne National Park, etal!! It's like entering Jurassic Park from another era. After a mere month on Newfoundland, you will already be making notes about where to go the next time you are there.

If you go to Newfoundland, you will probably need a ferry reservation; and the best time to book is for the first sailing in the morning. That way, you can pull into the ferry terminal after 10pm, get in line and spend the night there with a multitude of other RVers awaiting the morning departure.

No problems with using credit cards in Canada, although I prefer to carry a wad of cash with us, as well.
