I'm planning a tour of New England, New Brunswick, & Nova Scotia after the MG 2015 NAMGBR event in Niagara Falls in June. Looking for suggestions of must see sights. I'm doing the MMC (Moss Motoring Challenge) so I'l be looking for points. I always enjoy meeting fellow MG enthusiasts. I've not driven much in New England but would like to plan out about a two week route. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Kay and I have vacationed in NS several times....in general, always like to stay a couple days in downtown Halifax...great restaurants, and home of Alexander Keith's beer. Cape Breton is very picturesque...Scott's bay/beach is interesting, Peggy's Cove....Port Royal has a lot of interesting history on the north side also ...and the reverse tides are really something to see...I am sure Phil O will chime in here...he is an expert!
We always do mostly B&B...great way to meet people...

I've heard there is one of those New England states where the law was that anyone turning left had the right-of-way which is a little odd and caused a lot of wrecks so they changed it which caused a lot more wrecks. Don't remember which state though.

My travel books have arrived from the state of Maine and Nova Scotia, thanks for all the tips you guys have offered. I'll post a photo now and then during my road trip during June

Hope to see a few of you in Niagara or along the route.
