To the maritimes

I'm looking for some recommendations on places to stay, things to be sure not to miss. We will be leaving from Conway NH and we have been looking through all the flyers and folders from all the chamber of commerce stuff. We're not sure how much time to dedicate to each area. We plan on New Brunswick, PEI, Nova Scotia including the Cabot trail, and cape Breton. Any tips would be appreciated

Find out when "the Tattoo" is being held in Halifax ... time your visit so you are there for that ... it is a special show that you do not want to miss ...

We went there with the WIT tour ... it was the highlight of our time in the maritime ...

Be sure to check the provincial tourism sites for each province. There is a lot.

Some things I remember from my trips.
Nova Scotia:
Peggy's Cove
Nova Scotia, Canada - Lonely Planet

NB - Bay of Fundy Tides - Hopewell Rocks
Batouche Boardwalks
tons of historic sites
Tourism New Brunswick : Destinations, Accommodations & Activities

Confederation Bridge
Cavendish Park - Red Sand Beaches
Charlotte Town
Tourism Prince Edward Island (PEI) - Canada - Official Guide

If you are into National Parks, there are a few between these three provinces. A pass might be worth investigating. The local provincial parks can be very nice too. An Example

Kiji Provincial Park

There are scads of historic sites, lighthouses, covered bridges and such. It really depends on what you are into.

NS has a bit of a wine industry going now so you might find some different things that you can't find elsewhere.

There should be opportunities for music, lobster fests and so on as well. The local calendars can be quite entertaining as well.

If you are looking for time management tips. My personal preference would be to spend the most time in NS. I found NB to be less entertaining and PEI is really not that big. Maybe 2-3 days in PEI (more if you like to hand around on beach). maybe 4-5 days in NB. Tides are interesting but not that interesting and the rest in NS. There is something to see in most regions of that province. PEI is more agricultural than anything unless you are into the carnival atmosphere that surrounds the Green Gables stuff (Kind of a mini Niagra Falls feel) and I found NB to be a bit misleading. The Bay of Fundy Scenic Hwy is about 70% inland for example. Magnetic hill was a bit of tourist trap kind of thing. You also pay good money to walk the boardwalks at Kouchibouguac National Park only to find the ones at Batouche free and much more extensive.

We went back in 2009 and had a wonderful time. We entered in lower part of NB and spent about 4 days there then on to NS and spent about 4 day seeing some of the interesting things in route to Sydney to catch the ferry to Newfoundland. We spent 24 days there and still didn't get to St. John. Everything there was very laid back and comfortable. We went all the way to the north west tip to the Meadows Regional Park where the Vikings landed. We then we t back to NS and saw Cabot trail Lordsburg fort and a bunch of other spots including Peggy's Cove. We went to the sight where the Acadians were deported from. Very interesting and the on to PEI where we spent 3 days then headed home. If I had to do it again I would go straight to Sydney catch the ferry and spend all our time in Newfoundland. It was beautiful.
