Nova Scotia in three days

We have three to four days to spend in Nova Scotia, flying in and out of Halifax. We plan to stay in Halifax the night we arrive as we are airline employees flying standby and may not get in until 11pm. We would love to hear what the best itinerary would be for that length of time. We don't mind driving as long as the scenery is worth it, and like to stop and eat and drink along the way and take photographs.

Any guidance is much appreciated as we are leaving this Friday.

First issue is car rental. Lately, there is a shortage of rental cars both at the airport and also in the downtown area. Check into that ASAP.

3-4 days in Nova Scotia - Use Halifax as your base and do great day trips such as:

the south shore area including Lunenburg, http://www.explorelunenburg.ca/ Peggy's Cove, Mahone Bay and Chester.

Annapolis Valley area including Wolfville, home of Acadia University and Grand Pre wineries http://www.grandprewines.ns.ca/ , Annapolis Royal, home of the Historic Gardens. http://www.historicgardens.com/ Have lunch at Between the Bushes. www.betweenthebushes.ca/en/home/default.aspx in Canning or The Port Pub http://www.theportpub.com/ in Port Williams when you visit the Lookoff at Blomidon http://parks.gov.ns.ca/parks/blomidon.asp for fantastic photo op

Visit Advocate Harbour for a closer look at the Bay of Fundy and have dinner at the top rate restaurant in Nova Scotia Wild Caraway http://www.wildcaraway.com/Home.html
