Travelling from Toronto to East Coast with 2 young kiids

Hi, we are currently looking at doing a 2 week trip from Toronto to the East Coast with our 2 kids, age 2 and 3. Our initial thoughts are spend a few days getting across, a week there and a few days coming back through the US. We are only living in Toronto temporarily so this will be our only chance to do the trip and we want to make the most of it but also want to make it enjoyable for the kids - not too many long drives and a good base when we get over there. Any ideas on stops on the way and where to stay when we get over there would be appreciated. Thanks

I suggest you ask somewhere other than the Canada forum. I know your question deals with multiple provinces and the national forum seems to make sense, but the Canada forum is an agglomeration of all the destination forums within Canada, so topics posted to it tend to get pushed off the first page fairly quickly by the sheer volume of threads from all the different local forums. For example, at the time I'm writing this, your question -- barely 2 hours old -- is at the bottom of the first page of the Canada forum, about to drop into invisibility. So, ask perhaps on the forum for whichever east coast province you have in mind as an ultimate destination; you could also ask something similar on the Quebec forum, since you'll be passing through Quebec for a large part of the trip.

However, be sure to include the intended timing of your trip. Season will make a big difference as to what there is to do along the way. Also say something about your interests -- whether history, architecture, big cities, small towns, nature/wilderness, marine wildlife, beaches -- it's all potentially available along this route.

If you go to the Nova Scotia forum you will see a number of threads currently running on this exact topic... take a look at some of the suggestions being offered. Additionally, noted above, think about which provinces you want to spend the most time in, what you want to do when there, etc. A look at the individual region forums would assist there.
