Prince Edward Island or Nova Scotia in Week, Which One?

I am travelling from CT to the northern coast of Maine for business in the first week of September. I then have another week of vacation available to take my MH further north into Canada. Realizing that I do not have enough time to see both places, which would best be seen in a week? Don't know if I will ever get that way again so which shouldn't we miss? Have already seen most of the Northeast US so time to branch further out. Thanks, Tim

Agree with jimbo2013, we did the Nova Scotia and PEI trip in fall of 02 and it was great. I would highly recommend it.

If you drive to Pictou (near Trenton) you can put the MH on a ferry to PEI......I think it's still free(!). Then take the Confederation Bridge back to NB. I think the bridge toll is around $45.

I guess because I'm from NS I am partial to it.Having lived in NS for the first 38 years of my life and having visited PEI now twice for a few days at a time if I had to make a choice it would be NS. While visiting PEI I have found that it is mostly flat farmland. I really enjoyed the time we spent on the island and I think farmland is very scenic but I think NS has a wider variety of scenery to offer. I think that you could pretty much see most of PEI in a week I think you should spend more time than that seeing NS as it is much larger. I might offer that a week would be about the right amount of time to visit the Cabot Trail in Cape Briton. The scenery would be great that time of year. I'm sure which ever province you choose to visit you will love and enjoy it. ....Alan

Actually I think that the Pictou ferry cost more than taking the Confederation Bridge. We were just on the island in June and I looked at coming back on the ferry and it was more expensive than the bridge.

All Good Feedback

Thanks for your comments. I seem to agree that my time constraint is going to severly limit my ability to see all of Nova Scotia. Here is my new thought: Go to NS by land, travel down one side of the island and see that completely (which side is best?) and then take the ferry back to Maine. I know the ferry is costly but at this stage of my life, work commitments keep vacation times to a minimum. My wife seems to be hing up on PEI because of Anne of Green GAbles but I think we can get past that.

Maybe things have changed sine a couple of years ago. But two years ago going TO the island was free........either ferry or the bridge. Getting off the island was either a bridge toll or ferry charge. So.......the least expensive way was ferry to the island (free) and bridge back to NB for bridge toll of about $45.

My choice would be take the Lighthouse route down the south shore .Lots to see Peggy's Cove, Mahone Bay, Lunenburg ,Bridgewater, LaHave,Liverpool, Shelburne then on to the ferry in Yarmouth and you get to beautiful drive along the beautiful NS Atlantic ocean shore along the way.....Alan

From what I found out this summer both ways onto PEI are free but you have to pay which ever way you return to the mainland .The cost for our Rv towing a car was $45.00 plus $7.50 for each extra axle on the toad making a total of $60.00. When I checked the ferry rate it would have cost us $100 plus to come back on the ferry.....Alan
