Advise me...please!

With this view in my sights for the next couple hours as I sew plain white pillowcases for one of next week's Vacation Bible School crafts, my thoughts are naturally straying to more interesting subject matter.

Today we received our invitation to attend the wedding of a cousin to be held in one of the Great Camps of the Adirondacks. We are flying up for the wedding and plan to take an extended vacation to explore some of the surrounding area. On our list of locales so far (and these are all quick stops) are Boston, Niagra Falls, Toronto, and coastal Maine, particularly Acadia National Park. There is an ever-so-slight possibility that we will venture up to Prince Edward Island, but I can't really justify such an out-of-the-way sidetrip on a vacation already packed with things to do. I may be the big Anne Shirley fan in this house, but it's my husband who's pushing for this stop.

This trip will definitely be jam-packed, but I want to see as much as possible in the time we have. Sooo...if any of you have any suggestions for must-see sites in the northeast corner of the U.S. and southeast corner of Canada, please let me know. I'd love some insider travel info. And what do you think about us 'swinging by' PEI? It's twelve hours from Boston. With two boys in the backseat. I'm only one week into summer vacation and already that's sounding dicey.

But all you Anne fans, look at this. This I want to see!

You will love Acadia National Park, it's a beautiful stop and about an hour from where I live. A little farther up is Bar Harbor that is also scenic with lots of shopping if you are so inclined.

VBS. Brings back memories. I use to go faithfully every year.

Oooh! I wish I could advise, but since I can't I'll just wait to hear the report on how wonderful your adventure is.

There is nothing I love more than a good wedding, except a good vacation! Way to go you get both!! So jealous. I visited Canada with a school group years ago. The falls were breathtaking

I'm an Anne Shirley fan too!!! Please say hello to Toronto for me while you're there. And eat some poutine and some BUTTER TARTS. and eat at Swiss Chalet. also at at Tim Horton's. FWIW, squeezing in PEI would be too much for my family. What else? Take the Maid of the Mist at Niagara Falls. There's a ton to do in Toronto. How long are you there?

I've never been anywhere up there besides Maine (which was lovely). Oh! Oh! That musical looks SO good!
