@Donna: my uncle visited acadia last year and told me about acadia and said the same as you. I have been wanting to goto prince edward island for a few years now, just have not made that trip a prioity yet. 2 years ago I started my road trip in DC then to chincoteague, Virginia beach, Ashville, NC. Florence, AL.(helen keller museum). Branson, MO. I did a google search, and the ferry to Nova Scotia is not running anymore, nearest ferry is New Bruinswick, about 3 hours away.
