I do realize that I asked this question on a previous post and I appreciated the replies but now I am wonderfing about the towns closer to St John or beyond, in the event we decided to drive a little further than the half way point of St Stephans/St Andrews. I would like to stay close to the shoreline.

ok, have been giving this a little more thought! Check St. Martins. It is on the Bay of Fundy shores with miles of beaches and two covered bridges. It is the entrance to the Bay of Fundy Trail. There are several B&Bs that look highly recommended. This would get you much closer to PEI than my first recommendations of St. Andrews. The Salmon River B&B looks great!
Drive time is approx 4 1/2 hours from Bangor Maine. - don't forget the time change!
You could also follow Route 114 from Sussex (exit 211 on Route 1). This will take you out towards the Bay of Fundy and the village of Alma where there are many fine B&B's in the area. You can then visit Fundy National Park, Cape Enrage and Hopewell Rocks on your way through to Moncton on Route 114.
Thanks for the suggestions. We decided to go for St Martins and booked at the Salmon River B&B. Looks great ...Alma was a great suggestion but it adds a bit more distance onto our trip and we have to be in PEI the next day. If we had more time I would go to Alma. What this really means is that I will just have to come back and spend time exploring !
