Have been planning a trip to Nova Scotia from our home in New York.
Just completed a complete "AAA-Trip-Tik" routing that covers the entire coastal route of Nova Scotia....using a lot of spots to visit I got from members of this fine group. We will be departing mid July. Now that time is near I have many questions:
1. Should I exchange US dollars for Canadian currency or is US currency accepted?
2. I would like to use my charge cards whenever possible and that brings up two questions....are credit cards (Visa etc.) accepted just about everywhere?ccc campgrounds, gasoline stations, resturants etc???.....and is account/identity theft as big a problem in Canada as it is becoming in the United States???
3. What items are prohibited when crossing into Canada ? (Food items? Etc).
I know that I need my passport and driver's license
...got that covered.
We have no pets. Can I bring my favorite adult beverages (wine, beer and liquor)??
Is there one website that can cover all these topics?
We like to plan ahead and avoid stupid delays.
Will be entering from Calais, Maine and taking coastal route up to Nova Scotia.
We hope to see as much of the coast of Nova Scotia as possible....is it realistic to try to do this in two weeks?
What sites are "Must See attractions"?
Thanks for any help...this will be our first RV trip outside of the U.S.
