My husband and I are planning a 12 day trip from start to finish to NB, PEI and NS from mid to end of August. Is this itinerary workable?
Day 1 NYC to Bangor Maine, possibly Fredericton NB
2 Bangor to Moncton and Hopewell Cove - stay in Moncton
3 Moncton to Charlottetown PEI
5 Ferry to Pictou and on to Baddeck
8 Baddeck to Peggy's Cove - stay in Halifax
9 Halifax to Lunenburg -stay in Lunenburg
10 Lunenburg to Digby 4:00 ferry to St John
11 St John to Portland or beyond
12 Portland to Buffalo
Questions: Am I correct to assume that advance reservations are necessary, especially for PEI and Cape Breton at this time of year? We often like to travel without reservations so that we have more flexibility with our travels. Would this be too risky?
Also, how far in advance do you need to book the ferry between Digby and Saint John?
