Recommendations sought. Bike vacation similar to Cape Cod?

Hi,
We're not really interested in official, organized tours, but we really like the many attributes of biking around Cape Cod: it's got the bike route that covers most of the cape so we get to use exclusively bikes for transportation, good food spots, the beach, and the quaintness of the area, not too many strip malls, tacky restaurants, etc. Nice atmosphere. Any suggestions for other areas that might be like that? It doesn't have to be in the U.S. Anywhere.

What about Prince Edward Island?

The Confederation Trail runs the length of the island, and there are plenty of side trips.

chocosparrow, Welcome to the forum.

Nova Scotia is just wonderful. For something shorter look at Block Island, RI.
