Here's a VERY broad question to field.... My husband and I are planning a trip to Maine and Nova Scotia in September. We are, as of now, planning to fly into Boston, rent a car and proceed northward. Our first stop will be in Portland, Maine for a day or two then drive to Nova Scotia. I can't decide if we should take a ferry to Yarmouth and then drive around to different cities OR should we take the more scenic route and drive into Halifax? I've read so many interesting tips and ideas from various sites that I keep wanting to add more and more to my stay. I'm not a big itinerary plan person, more like a fly by the seat of my pants. I love spending time in interesting areas and just taking it in. It's never about how many places I can see in a day. We haven't settled on where we are staying in Nova Scotia because we haven't decided on the approach.
After spending several days in Nova Scotia we will drive back to Boston were we plan on staying for a day or two before heading back home.
Would love to get a few suggestions or just your comments in general! Thanks so much!
