Which area is recommended.

We were originally going to catch the ferry from Saint John to Digby - spend a night there and in the general area before driving to Halifax the following afternoon. As the ferry does not leave till noon we feel we would lose a day so have decided to drive. We would leave Saint John a day earlier than planned spend a night in Moncton then drive to Nova Scotia. We really wanted to see Digby and Annapolis Royal but somehow think we will be rushing things as we would only have the two days one night between Moncton to Halifax.. Our thoughts are either - Moncton to Annapolis Royal for the night then next day to Halifax or Moncton to Advocate Harbour area for the night then next day to Halifax. Recommendations please. Both areas sound beautiful.

1. Re: Which area is recommended.

Both areas are lovely. It depends on what you are looking for. History, charming village to putter around, historic gardens - choose Annapolis Royal.

Stunning beauty, the Bay of Fundy, a top rated restaurant like Wild Caraway, choose Advocate Harbour.

Advocate Harbour is closer. You can make a loop through there going from Moncton to Amherst, Joggins (fossil cliffs and museum), Advocate Harbour (beaches, tides, Chignecto Park hikes, kayaking, Wild Caraway), Cape D'Or (dramatic scenery), beautiful drive to Parrsboro (fossils and geological museum). Then you continue on along the Fundy shore through some lovely areas to Truro and on to Halifax.

Here is a map:
