What's a better fall vacation spot: New England or Nova Scotia?

My wife and I would like to take a vacation in September or October to either northern New England (Boston up into Maine, mostly along the coast) or Nova Scotia. Neither of us has ever been to either of these places, and we're just not sure which to choose.
We'll have about a week and a half, possibly right at two weeks, and doing both on a driving tour just doesn't seem feasible. We like outdoorsy stuff, but we also like to be in cities and towns and eat at nice places, go to museums and galleries, etc. My wife is also a Celtic musician, and Nova Scotia has a rich tradition, so that's one point in the NS column. Both seem equally appealing at this point, so there is no front runner. So, mefi, what should we do?
