So if you've "been there, done that" one too many times, get off the main road and venture Off the Beaten Path.

The book covers New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Nova Scotia. Each province is divided into multiple sections and each section has a map with some key towns on it. You will find lots of recommendations for shopping, lighthouses, natural parks, art galleries, historical homes, museums, restaurants, places to stay, local tours, and as the book title suggests, some off-the-beaten path places. Interspersed with this information is local history, trivia, stories, and even recipes for dishes like Rappie pie and Irish moss pudding.
On my trip, I ran out of time and I did not make it to Cape Breton. However, some of my favorite things were: Peggy's Cove (NS), The Ovens Natural Park (NS), Sackville Waterfowl Park (NB), Hopewell Rocks Park (NB), spotting a moose around dusk at Fundy National Park, and of course, visiting lots of lighthouses. The Public Gardens, the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, and the waterfront area in Halifax were enjoyable too. All of these places are described in this book.
One place that was not included is the Parrsboro Rock & Mineral Shop. Parrsboro is a great place for rock and fossil hunting. When I stopped at this shop, I had the pleasure of talking with Eldon George who is a well-known fossil collector in the area. In 1984, he found what was then the world's smallest dinosaur prints. If you're interested in geology, I highly recommend that you stop by there when in Parrsboro.
