Which way round

We are going to Las Vegas in late September to visit our daughter.

Rather than just go straight there and come straight back to the UK we thought we would include a trip to Nova Scotia for about 10 days and also a visit to the mainland cities of Eastern Canada, i.e Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa and Quebec, for about 8 days.

Our original intentions are to go to Nova Scotia first then either fly or take the train to Montreal, see the cities, fly from Toronto to Las Vegas and then return to the UK. However a friend said it could be too hot in early September in Eastern Canada

and we would be better off going to Las Vegas first then stopping off in Canada on the way home. On the other hand somebody else told me that come October a lot of things in Nova Scotia may well be closed.

I should add that in both cases we are looking at

escorted coach tours.

Confused or what? Please advise!!

Walt~ I think your original idea to see Halifax, fly to another destination in the East to tour and then go to Las Vegas would work well. It may be warm in Toronto in early September but it will be downright hot in Las Vegas. :)

As well from a purely practical standpoint, you'll have gone through the major jet lag already (although a 3 hr change might still hit you from Toronto->LV) and that will make your visit with your daughter more enjoyable.

Regarding Ontario & Quebec weather, unless you have some unusual sensitivity to moderate temperatures, I don't think you'll find it too hot in September. There can be some unpleasantly hot, humid days in July and August, but that would be rare in September. You might choose October for the fall colours, but I would choose September for the weather.

Hopefully, you will get an answer to your question about Nova Scotia being closed in October on the Nova Scotia forum. But you say you will be doing an escorted tour; it strikes me that if the tours are operating in October, the attractions will be open.
