My mother, three daughters and I will be going on a whirlwind trip from the Washington DC area up to PEI, Cape Breton and Halifax and then back again.
Travel time: 2-3 weeks total.
Must see: Cavendish/Anne stuff and Cape Breton highlands... Halifax and other stops optional.
At this point everything is open to suggestion. We will be driving up mid July.
Other than PEI/Anne of Green Gables stuff, we would like to take the road less traveled and less expensive. Hoping to rent a cottage in PEI for about a week.
Any suggestions for a reasonable route?? Must see villages, stops, parks, etc. We like to walk and explore. I am open to taking some ferries to cut down on driving time.
My kids love collecting shells, playing on the beach, hiking, swimming.
I love local festivals, hiking, driving scenic drives, mountains, secluded coves, breathtaking vistas, quaint non-tourist villages.
Any ideas/suggestions for a logical and reasonable route for our trip?
