    Lodi's mission, part deux...

    So, I decided about five minutes ago that i'm driving to Nova Scotia next week. I'll stop in portland maine, and niagra falls of course. But has anyone been to nova scotia that can give me a few tips on whats good to see and all? Plus, I have no reservations, i'm just gonna drive till I find a hotel. I'll bring a tent just in case, so anyone that might know good sleeping arrangments and such, any help would be greatly appreciated......

    Knives and watches are inexpensive......as for the big ticket items, I don't like to refer to it as " blowing money" rather, I like to refer to it as " being spontaneous". Yes, spontaneous is the word we're looking for....

    Niagara Falls to Portland and Portland to Nova Scotia are two pretty solid days of driving, if you block it out that way. Sounds like fun.

    Do you need a passport to drive over into Canada, or do you have one already?

    I don't need one by land or sea, only air. But one of my friends pointed out that gas is sold by the liter there, and I have to check the prices, because it may be way to expensive to drive it. I might have to put this on hold, we'll see

    Looks like it's running about $1.30-1.40/L (CAN$ and US$ are nearly even at this point) in Ontario and Nova Scotia, so you're looking at something like $4.85-5.29 per gallon. Hell, it's $4.29 here, so it's not that big a jump.

    Niagara Falls!

    Whatever you do, DON'T cross at the Queenston-Lewiston bridge! The wait there is always way longer than at the Rainbow Bridge (right at the Falls) or the Peace Bridge (Buffalo-Fort Erie).
    The light at the end of the tunnel IS the front of an oncoming train!

    Not a problem! :-)
    If you're on the 'net while you're travelling and sticking around the area for a bit, let me know. I can tell you where NOT to visit! lol

    Halifax is a great starting point - the harbourfront is nice this time of year, and you're sure to find some cool pubs with great live music. Hope you like squid-jiggin' fiddle tunes
    Lunenberg and Mahone Bay are quintessential "quaint maritime villages" - very picturesque. Peggy's Cove is probably the most visited spot, but despite that, it's not terribly overrun with tourists.

    All of the above are pretty close to one another, but if you've got more time (and can afford the gas), make the trip to the Cabot Trail on Cape Breton Island. It's wicked-beautiful - one of the world's most scenic highways. I've only driven it in a car, but I'd love to go back with either my road bike or my motorcycle.

    If humungous tides - like over fifty feet between high and low - are your thing, check out the Bay of Fundy near its ends (like around Wolfville and Windsor).

    Eat lots of seafood (hopefully lobster's in season!).
