Great videos nuala

Annapolis valley and Cabot Trail are my favorite places in Nova Scotia, and possibly in all of Canada.

New Brunswick side of the Bay of Fundy offers their own attractions, as well. Note the tide schedule!

I agree with Jambo101, I'm not a fan of New Brunswick either, I always disliked driving through there. IMHO N.S and P.E.I are much nicer.

There is a Motel 6 in Moncton, New Brunswick

Cabot Trail is a must see/drive.
Also agree about Gaspe too.

Thank all of you for the suggestions. These will take a while to process.

I figure this trip for September or October and one to Newfoundland next year.

I will be driving the Cabot Trail in NS this August. We will be doing the drive on a Sunday.

Should I be worried about finding open gas stations on Sunday?

Some pop-mom gas stations may be closed on Sundays, but bigger ones (Irving, Ultramar, Shell, Sobey's) will be open.

It's not the day of the week that you should be concerned with, but the distance between gas stations. I forget about the Cabot trail, but for example, if you take a ride across NS (north-south or vice versa, say, from the Bay of Fundy to the South Shore (Lunenburg)) - your tank should last for 1.5 hours at least. Very few gas stations on those north-south highways. As a rule, a rural nova-scotian has filled gasoline cans in their trunks.

Thank you for the advice. I will be driving a van though, so I don't think I will be carrying a filled gas can inside it. I will just be careful to fill up whenever I have the chance.

Wow, where do you and have you lived in Canada. I've always wondered about living in Annapolis Valley, namely Annapolis Royal (although I'd probably leave for winters :-)).
