Planning 7 days in August - Just Nova Scotia?

We were planning on driving from Ontario through Bangor, Maine and wanted to stay 2 nights in Wolfville and 2 nights in Halifax. The primary purpose of our trip was to check out Acadia University for our son and then add some seafood and scenery to the trip. With two teenagers 14 and 16, we don't want to spend alot of time in the car but would love to see great sights, visit the beachs and see some whales.

As we realize the getting to the Maritimes and the getting back to Ontario will take about 4 days in total, we are now thinking of flying to Halifax and just doing Nova Scotia. Once I did that, then I didn't know what to fill the days with that will still interest the kids.

My initial thoughts are:

Fly to Halifax Friday night - stay at the Radisson Suites on the harbourfront

Saturday - harbourfront - Atlantic Museum - Peggy's Cove and then read Lunenberg was not as busy as Peggy's Cove

Sunday - whale watching - Brier Island or Lunenberg

Monday - 1 hr drive to Wolfville - check out town and Acadia University - Halls Harbour for tides

Tuesday - Wolfville

Wednesday - NB? Cape Breton? PEI? now I'm stuck

Thursday -

Friday -

Saturday - fly home from Halifax
