We are still in the planning stage of our August trip and would like some advise as to our itinerary. There are lots of things we are interested in doing so I want to have an idea of what to actually do.
We are driving from Baddeck and will be sta;ying in the Brackley Beach area for 2 nights. What is the best road to take after leaving the ferry and how long of a trip is it? Also, should we book the ferry ahead of time. That evening, we would like to go to the National Park for a drive.
The next day we are going around the East coast with a stop at Rick's Fish and Chips. Would a bike rental be a good idea in this area (say for an hour or so) and if so, what company? What about the Potato Vodka place in Hermanville - is it worth a stop. We do want to go to Basin Head (singing sands). After that, what else is of importance to see and do along the east coastal drive? Also, where are some good eating places that aren't expensive. We do have tickets to see "Anne" in Charlottetown that evening.
The next day, we are heading to Tignish (deep sea fishing in the a.m.) We are early risers. Anything, we should stop and see on our way back towards Charlottetown. Our fishing will be done around 1:30 P.M. That evening we are seeing Come-All-Ye in Charlottetown and are staying for the next 2 nights in Kinkora.
The following day, (our last full day on the island), we thought we would take the drive around Victoria and spend more time in Charlottetown (maybe do a walking tour) and make a loop around the Cavindish/Darnley area.
What should not be missed. We have our 14 year old grandson with us.
Thanks so much for your input.
