I live in New Brunswick and grew up in Nova Scotia, so I’m a bit biased…but I think the Maritimes would be a great honeymoon destination. I’ve been in all the Maritime provinces, but I haven’t travelled to Newfoundland yet (it’s not actually a part of the Maritimes, it’s part of the Atlantic Provinces). My best friend from high school lives there though, and loves it – it’s great if you’re the outdoorsy type.

What types of things are you interested in doing? That would help to give you some advice.

I’m from Nova Scotia, and although I’m a little biased I think it would be great for a honeymoon. I lived there for 16 years and would love to go back for my own honeymoon (since my Fiance has never been), but I really want to have “alone time” and not feel obligated to visit old friends/family.

I now live in Barbados in the Caribbean, and I think it would be lovely to come here for a honeymoon as well. Tourism is huge here and with the economy the way it is right now, you can get some AMAZING deals on hotels. Usually Barbados is one of the most expensive islands to live on and visit in the Caribbean, but if you look around right now you can really get a good deal.

I love the Canadian Maritimes also!

My brother lives in Halifax and when I visited him we travelled all over Nova Scotia and New Brunswick! I can’t wait to go back and see more!

The weather was a bit colder than I was expecting for July. But if you live near the atlantic I am sure you are used to it!

I think the area could provide you with everything you are looking for in a honeymoon!

I grew up in Nova Scotia and am currently living in Newfoundland. I think that this region would be great for a Honeymoon if you are into outdoor activities and you don’t mind driving around a bit to get places.

I think the biggest thing that people don’t realize is how big the Maitimes or Atlantic region actually is! For example if you were staying in Halifax/Dartmouth (the 2 largest cities in NS) you are about a 30-40 minute drive from a sandy beach. The Cabot Trail (on Cape Breton Island) is maybe a 3 to 4 hour drive. PEI requires a drive through New Brunswick to go over the Bridge or a Ferry ride from NS. etc.

If you wanted to do a ‘tour’ you could probably rent cottages in different places. Or there are LOTS of gorgeous campgrounds ranging from real justa-tent-in-the-woods roughing it to places with RV rentals, pools and waterslides.

I guess you need to think about what you would like to do or see specifically more than coming up thinking you can do it all in a week.

GO TO NEWFOUNDLAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry. We roadtripped there last summer and it was simply the best trip of my life. Honestly. Stunningly beautiful. Amazing people. Lots of things to do or just places to relax and enjoy. Gros Morne National Park is like stepping into Jurassic Park (only moose instead of dinosaurs), it’s pristine and untouched, unlike anything I’ve ever seen. I’ve been lucky enough to travel a lot of the world, but I’d give just about anything to go back to Newfoundland!

@Julialimei:  No problem! I find it’s one thing to say ‘This place was amazing!’ and another to show you photos, and our commentary while we were in the midst of it. As you can tell, we really loved it there 🙂
