Help us plan our road trip!

A friend and I are planning a road trip from Boston to Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia. We've got six days total (Friday, June 30th until Wednesday, July 4th). So far, we've booked Saturday and Sunday nights at a campground in Cape Breton, and we're planning to take the ferry from Digby to St. John on Wednesday morning (and finish the rest of the drive back that day). We'd love some advice about the trip in general and how best to spend our time!

* Any recommendations for where to stay Friday night? We think we'll make it about up to the border (Houlton or so) -- any great places to camp/hotel that we should consider in that area? We're open to reasons to stop earlier or drive farther for a good cause, but we won't have a lot of flexibility since we want to get to Cape Breton by Saturday night.
* Any advice about where to go while we're in Cape Breton? Great hikes, restaurants, etc? Neither of us have been, and we're looking forward to it!
* I think we're going to spend Tuesday in Halifax -- any recommendations for what to prioritize there?
* There's going to be a lot of driving on the trip already, but are there any other must-sees in Nova Scotia that seem within striking distance?
Thanks so much!
