To celebrate, hopefully, the first and (last time) I ever study for the NY and MA bar, the SO and I are road tripping it up to Nova Scotia for some serious camping time in Aug. We are leaving from Boston, and then travelling through Nova Scotia before returning to NY. My SO does not normally plan vacations, and I am too busy trying to understand property to do any planning, so I am hoping you guys have some good ideas.
Where should we stop along the way? (Really anywhere between Nova Scotia and NY will do). Camp? Get the best sea food and BBQ? We are foodies, so enjoying some awesome local food is a must. Any ideas? So far our itinary is get to Nova Scotia. 🙂

I can’t help you with the drive, sorry, but once you DO get to Nova Scotia – you should absolutely drive the Cabot Trail – BREATHTAKING!! There is lots of great camping too!
Good place to start for information: http://www.novascotia.com/en/home/ourregions/scenic_travelways/cabot_trail/default.aspx

I second the Cabot Trail! It’s beautiful!
I also had the best, freshest, mussels of my life there. It’s been years so I have no idea what the restaurant was…
Have a great time!

Lunenburg is a delightful town, as is Mahone Bay.
Anywhere along St. Margaret’s Bay is beautiful. If you are a beach person, Bayswater Beach is fabulous!
Not sure of your route, but Acadia park in Maine is gorgeous!!

Commenting to follow. I’d love to see the east coast of Canada.
And congrats on writing the bar!

I imagine you’re going to be driving through NB, so in that case, my parents really enjoyed the small town of St. Andrew’s, and Fiance and I loved to go camping in Fundy National Park when we lived in NB. We live in NS now, but not sure what to suggest, other than heading to Cape Breton (and the cabot trail). The Annapolis Valley can be lovely and there are lots of wineries and things there, so that might be nice to check out, if you like wine.

Totally Lunenburg! Also Peggy’s Cove – both beautiful spots. 🙂 Obviously Citadel Hill too, if you are in Halifax. There are so many gorgeous places to see there, I can’t even begin to think of them, but those three popped into my head immediately.

I second Peggy’s Cove, it’s a must see in NS! Darling Husband is from Cape Breton and it’s gorgeous up there, too. Also, the Annapolis Valley is nice.
You will love it! Amazing people, food, and views!

@GeekChic: +1. We just moved to Nova Scotia and we love Peggy’s Cove. There are a lot of awesome hiking trails in NS too.
