If you're going that far then don't miss Cabot Trail on Cape Breton Island. That drive was spectacular. Reminded me of the drive down the coast of Northern California. Takes your breath away.
Happy trails,

X 2 on the Cabot Trail. The Bay of Fundy is incredible. Fifty Three foot tidal variance in some spots. It's fun to go to a spot at low tide and then go back at high tide. A favorite spot in New Brunswick is Hopewell Rocks http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attractio...Brunswick.html . All the people we met were great. We were supposed to only go as far as Nova Scotia , someone convinced us to go to New Foundland and we spent almost four weeks there. That's for another thread. Enjoy.

I live in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia and my home was on the Bay of Fundy just across the water from Five Islands. Maybe it is just because I lived there so long but I think there are many more attractive areas here in the province than the Bay of Fundy area. As Cliff and Bill already have eluded to, don't leave Nova Scotia without visiting Cape Breton and the Cabot Trail. There is a beautiful KOA just minutes from the Cabot Trail and is very central to all points of interest in Cape Breton. There is another KOA just outside of Halifax which is central to points of interest on the main land.

lwe've been to Nova Scotia several times, have been to Sydney,Louisburg, Baddeck, Cabot Trail, Peggy's cove, Halifax, Lunenburg, Truro, Parrsboro and PEI, Hopewell rocks NB but all this driving a car. This time around, we are taking the TT and it's our first big trip with it wnd aiming for Parrsboro because we have cousins there and like the area (no offence to all other NS areas,mall beautiful).
Thinking about driving through NY, VT, nH, ME unsure of the road to take. Want to make it safe. Probably will take 3 days to get to Parrsboro.
Any idea for roads? At first we were going to go throu Quebec on 20 but gas is $$$$ and not much to see
