One of the best ways to see Canada is with a good ol’ fashioned road trip! This past summer I took a two week road trip from Saint John, New Brunswick to Halifax, Nova Scotia. We stopped at some amazing places along the way, and took day trips from Halifax to famous Peggy’s Cove and Lunenburg.

Scroll down to see the photo diary of our adventures and for advice on how to plan your own East Coast Canada Road Trip!

What’s a road trip without stopping for food?

Take advantage of the delicious seafood along the way!

To begin our journey, we flew into Saint John, New Brunswick. Saint John is a very small town, so you really only need a day (or afternoon) to explore. From there, we drove to the picturesque town of St.Andrews by-the-sea, one of the most beautiful landscapes I’ve ever seen!!

After spending a few nights at the haunted Algonquin Resort (a must see hotel!), we drove through Shediac, the lobster capital of the world.

Our next stop on the road trip was the Masstown Market, a staple for East Coast Canada Road Trips!

Don’t leave without getting the fish and chips!! Thank me later.

This is a great place to buy groceries for the rest of your trip such as fresh seafood and fruits and vegetables.

We arrived in Halifax and used the city as a home base while exploring the rest of the province on day trips. Peggy’s Cove, Mahone Bay, and Lunenburg are must see destinations! If you have more time, don’t miss Nova Scotia Wine Country, Cape Breton and P.E.I!

For more information on how to spend 3 Days in Halifax (a great end to your East Coast Canada Road Trip), read my post here.

All together, we spent one afternoon in Saint John, 3 nights in St. Andrews by the sea, one day driving from New Brunswick to Nova Scotia (stopping in Shediac and Masstown Market), and 4 nights in Halifax, with day trips to Peggy’s Cove, Lunenburg, and Mahone Bay.

We spent the following week exploring America’s East Coast, taking in Boston Red Sox games, and stuffing our faces with even more seafood. For more on what to do in Boston, continue reading!

Pin for later!
