You'll get more $$$'s exchanging your cash at a Bank. Credit Cards not a problem except for their rates
Guns are prohibited. Bring your own booze as it's expensive in Canada
Cape Breton Island is breath taking. Seafood is worth the trip alone!!!
Here's some pic's. Peggy's Cove, Lunenburg, and sunset camping on the Bay of Fundy. Pay per View campsite!!!

I'm really late to this discussion, but I was up that way last summer (Minnesota to Nova Scotia and back--blog posts at adventuresinscamping.blogspot.com) and it's true that I was on a genealogical/historical plan, but if you're not going to spend your time in archives, I had a great time in Halifax at the maritime museum (and the cemetery where most of those who died in the Mont Blanc explosion and also those recovered from Titanic are buried) and I also enjoyed the natural history museum. Peggy's Cove was gorgeous. I spent quite a few days near Grand Pre (the Land of Evangeline campground, I think)--which is just stunning in itself (the memorial is really well done), and I also had fun fossil hunting. Annapolis Royal was also gorgeous.

I traveled with two cats and had no troubles with either of my border crossings. I didn't know about chips on my cards (neither had chips) and so they were rejected at the gas pump, but I learned to pay inside and that wasn't a problem. The black flies were nasty (last summer) and I've gotten a Clam screen tent in the meantime, and I wonder if that would have made things more bearable.

I ended up in more RV park type campgrounds, because the provincial parks in Nova Scotia don't have electricity (and I need that). If you can stay in Fundy National Park in New Brunswick, do. That was my favorite park of them all.

Enjoy your trip!

+1 Late to this as well.

As far as cash, I typically hit the first cash machine and withdraw spending money for the trip.

Invariably, I end up with money at the end. Even though gas costs more, I add up all my loose change (realize Canada has a $1 and $2 coin), and fill up to that amount prior to leaving Canada. So if I have $14.87 in change, I get that amount of gas. I save the currency for my next trip. Of course, I usually forget my bag of Canadian funds the next time, and so it goes.

But the concept "works".

And if you are traveling to the Maritimes, be sure to visit PEI and be sure to bring bicycles. That part of Canada has an extensive bike trail system, lots of riding available.

Hi: thrifty bill... It's true you must visit PEI...it's Canada's Garden Province. The bridge is free to get there but they make you pay to get out!!! Another great island to see is Cape Breton Island. Every mile has a "Wow" sight.
