Lighthouse trip

Hi, my name is Judi. My husband and I are planning on taking a trip up the east coast (starting in Ga.) to Nova Scotia. I am a Lighthouse collector and want to see all that I can during this trip. We also plan on going in Sept. so that we can see the change of the leaves.

Has anyone ever taken a trip like that and can share there thoughts and route they may have taken. We will going by Rochester and Syracuse, New York as we have family to visit in both places. That will be on way back to our summer home in Ga.

I would appreciate any info anyone may have. Thanks much Judi

No opinion on the USA part of your trip but the Lighthouse Route in NS is highly recommended! I did it about 20 years ago and loved it. I also can recommend at the end of it you see the Maritime Museum in Halifax. If you're into that sort of thing, it's the best maritime exhibit I've ever seen and I would allow a full day to see it all. Halifax itself is a cool town to explore.

My wife is a lighthouse fanatic, so we do a lot of light looking. It can be a bit daunting along the east coast but there is a lot of info out there. As an example, take a look at this link to just what Maine has to offer. Maine Lighthouses on New England Lighthouses: A Virtual Guide

When you really have the time, Michigan has the most light houses of all states,"116" in all. And it has some gorgwous roads to travel and likewise the fall colors are spectacular.

I suggest that you travel through Long Island, NY. Montauk Point has a very old Lighthouse built over 200 years ago. You could camp at Hither Hills State Park which is on the ocean (no hookups but very clean bathrooms). You will see some very nice homes and vehicles while going through The Hamptons on the way to Montauk. There are other lighthouses on Long Island as well. To get to Nova Scotia from LI, you could take the Orient Point Ferry. Along the way you will pass many farms and wineries. The ferry takes you to New London, CT. If time is not a factor, you could drive to RI and coastal MA, NH, and ME. Last August we went from Long Island to NS. We took the Orient Point ferry and eventually the ferry from St. John's, NB to Digby, NS. I hope you enjoy the trip.
