DH & I are planning a trip next year (we were going to go this year, but bought dining room furniture and a TV instead – so now when we have dinner at our new table, we pretend we’re on vacation! LOL!)

Anyhow, we’ve never been to the east coast, and what we’d like to do is fly into Montreal and rent a car. We want to explore some of Quebec, then we thought we’d drive/ferry over to the Maritimes, and fly home from there. We’re planning on 2 – 3 weeks.

I’ve always wanted to go to the Maritime provinces – they look so beautiful from the pictures of seen and I’m really looking forward to it!

Can any of you locals recommend any sites to visit? Great cities, etc.? Useful websites?

I know it’s a ways away yet, but I like to plan early!

Thanks! :)

Like SuzieG I didnt mean to overlook your question either, I know my way from my house to the grocery store to the antique store, so not much help. If you need a step by step guide to T.O I can be of much bigger help.
I guess there's a thing about lobsters here, but I wouldn't know, I only eat the real kind :D The Scandinavian kind.

Thanks for your tips! I'm so looking forward to going - even if it is a year or so away.

From what I've read so far, and pictures I've seen, the maritimes look like a place I would really love.

I've been to France, and many people have told me I should go to Quebec for a little taste of France - can't wait!

Thanks again :)

Well, Halifax is the Hub of the maritimes, and that's where I am. Stuck in the middle@!!! But there is so much to sea!! LOL

If you're going to go to Quebec, old Quebec is the best stop to make. Montreal is great for shopping and nightlife, but if you're a tourist, don't miss old Quebec. It's like taking a step back in time.

You won't need a ferry from there, though... just drive into New Brunswick, and head straight for Moncton :-) I don't know much about NB, though so I don't know where to tell you to visit. When it comes to Halifax (Nova Scotia), the South Shore (Lunenburg, Mahone Bay, CHester), and into Halifax, then to the other side, into Wolfville and Kentville. Once you're in Halifax, it's just a 5 hour drive to the Cabot Trail, which is a MUST SEE!!!

Keep me posted on your plans. I can certainly suggest many places to stay. Including here :-)
