You have

- Halifax Citadel
- Maritime Museum
- Canadian museum of immigration
- art gallery of Nova Scotia
- Halifax farmers market
- casino Nova Scotia
- discovery Centre
- seafood anywhere there is delicious
- day trips to Charlottetown, Lunenburg, Peggy’s cove, bay if fundy
I would rent a car and make it a roadtrip through rural Nova Scotia. Either Cape Breton, or Southbound to the Bay of Fundy, Gaspereau Valley, Digby, Brier Island, Keji Seaside, Lubenburg. (I wouldn't bother for a stop in Yarmouth.)

It can be windy and wet, so bring a raincoat - and rubber boots for your walk on the ocean floor at Burntcoat Head!

PS: The Immigration Museum is fabulous.

Vancouver to Edmonton is over 600 what a rip off!! I can fly to California for cheaper
Actually you can likely fly to Shanghai cheaper.

I second this, as I just came back from vacation from the East coast in June ... rent a car, bum around, it's beautiful.

In Halifax:
Cows ice cream on the waterfront (pei company)
Darrells burgers- fenwick st
Henry house - pub food. Barrington st.
Doughnuts - Vandals and Fortune, a block apart in the North end

The Seaport farmers market is pretty mediocre. Local food at above retail cost. Could just visit Pete's to pay high end for local any day of the week, and they have better smoothies
Except that at the market the FARMER/PRODUCER gets the money, not some bad, rich ahole who has too much money, right?

Our baby will be one year old in Sept. Parents, from your experience, is it ideal to travel for 3-4 days to cover PEI and Halifax?

Thanks!

Thanks OP. I booked a flight for a short trip in September. I've been to NS once before and focused on Cape Breton Island, Halifax and Peggys Cove. This time, I've decided on the Digby area and Lunenburg. Can't wait to try those famous scallops! Lunenburg looks really pretty too. Do you think it's worth it to take a cruise on the Bluenose II?

I think it’s more than possible if you focus on kid friendly spots.

- Seafood -- Believe it or not, the seafood restaurants out here are typically overpriced, mediocre food, especially the ones on the waterfront (Murphy's, Waterfront Warehouse, Bluenose, Five Fisherman, Salty's are the ones I'm talking about). McKelvie's is good but it can be hit or miss on the service -- and sometimes they use frozen fish so you need to ask. Bicycle Thief has a decent seafood selection but can be noisy. Anyway, the better seafood dishes aren't at seafood restaurants.
Where are the better seafood dishes?

I like Five Fishermen. It's not on the waterfront. Yes, it's pricey. They have valet service and a sommelier. Not necessarily RFD style. :+)

Great price. We got reamed to the tune of $540 round trip to Halifax for this coming long weekend. I hate the Canadian airlines.

The regular fares make it almost non-sensical for Canadians to explore their own country.

If you are only going for a week (let's say 9 days including weekends) for an East Coast trip, flying and then renting a car there is your best bet, and this is a good price. Did this trip a few years ago except started from Moncton (think it was around $220 roundtrip). Assuming your are not planning to go to Newfoundland, everything is within a reasonable driving distance.

It's too far/hectic to drive there and then be on the road every day for a week IMO. If you would rather drive the whole way, plan for 2 weeks.
