Help me plan my family vacation in ... Nova Scotia or PEI (Which?)

I'm solo parenting for the first time for this year's summer trip with my kids (10 and 14). Spouse will be working. Trying to decide between Nova Scotia's north coast or Prince Edward Island. And then figure out a good strategic base to plant ourselves so we can do a few reasonably short daytrips. Current mood: feeling overwhelmed by the travel guides. [more inside]

Suggest interesting things to do in Nova Scotia in September?

We'll be wandering around Nova Scotia for a couple weeks in September. We've got accommodations and some activities figured out. But can you recommend some things we might not have thought of for activities, as well as great places to eat (as in interesting and not touristy)? Our time will concentrate on spending several days in each of these areas: Digby to Wolfville; Halifax to Lunenburg; Cape Breton (Ceilidh trail, Cabot Trail, Louisbourg); Eastern Shore drive; day or two in Maitland area for tidal bore rafting and recovery. Thanks in advance!

Destination: Bay of Fundy... Looking for B&B recommendations please!

We're headed to Nova Scotia in August, and are looking forward to long beach walks & maybe discovering the odd amethyst or two. Can anyone recommend B&Bs or hotels on the Nova Scotia side of the Bay of Fundy? Ideally within 20 minutes' walk of the beach, around $100 per night or so. Thank you!

Northern Nova Scotia/ Cape Breton vacation tips?

At the end of the month, my girlfriend and I are heading to Nova Scotia. We'll be staying with a friend in Pictou for a few days, then renting a car out of New Glasgow and heading off on our own. We have four days (three nights) before we fly out of Halifax...and no plans at all. Where should we go? Recommendations for nature/odd attractions/good food wanted. Particularly lovely towns? Good routes? Places to stay?

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! [more inside]
