7 day Nova scotia in July with young kids

I am planning a family trip in the middle of July with my kids aged 4 and 9. We will be staying with some family who moved to Halifax last year. I am looking for some sights to see and things to do with the kids and for suggestions on some great day trips from Halifax. I don't want to spend the whole day driving but a couple hours and then get out and do something and then make it back to halifax to sleep most nights.

You will find lots of thinks of interest to kids. The first thing you can do here is use the search box below putting in things such as "children kids activities" or similar. You will find many previous posts.

Kids will love the Halifax waterfront. Take a ride on the ferry to Dartmouth or to Woodside and back. Your four year old may like to take a ride on Theodore Too (tugboat which was the star in a kid's TV show.) http://www.mtcw.ca/theodoretugboat/

They and you would also enjoy the Harbour Hopper. http://www.mtcw.ca/harbourhopper/

Walk in the Public Gardens, visit the Discovery Centre and the Maritime Museum.




Day trips:

Lunenburg (fabulous Fisheries Museum including old fishing boats to explore, fish to touch, etc.)


Peggy's Cove (They will love climbing around on the rocks, just don't go anywhere wet!)


Ross Farm Museum (an old fashioned working farm).


There are lots of lovely beaches close to Halifax and along the Eastern and South Shores.

I'll stop there but others will add to the list. You can search for more information about all these places using the search bar below, Google, or on www.novascotia.com

Please come back with more questions.
