Cute eateries and boutiques give Mahone Bay a special charm.
getting there From Calais, Maine, it is a 200-mile drive across New Brunswick to Nova Scotia via NB Route 1 and the Trans-Canada Highway. Amherst is the first community you enter after crossing into Nova Scotia. From there, it is another 150 miles to the heart of the quaint villages on the south shore. We had visions of slowly circumnavigating the peninsula with our truck and trailer, visiting every cove and hamlet. However, we quickly discovered that this coastal route and most of the other smaller and more interesting roads are not suitable for big RVs, as there are no shoulders and many twists, turns and potholes. The best way for RVers to tackle Nova Scotia is on the highways that crisscross the province (routes 101, 102, 103 and 104), leaving the trailer in base camps and doing all the scenic drives, explorations and village visits with the tow vehicle.
