[QUOTE]Hey asmaha ! Being to the East Coast twice now from out here in Western Canada. As oatscam mentioned 4 days is tight, so for my money, if I were faced with just 4 days, I would head to Cape Breton right away. You will find fantastic Celtic music, fantasic seafood, oh !, fantastic people and fantastic scenery. If you golf you can do Highland Links, many times voted Canada's #1 golf course. And if you like Scotch whiskey there is the Glen Breton distillary that makes a single malt Canadian whiskey, in the style of a Scotch whiskey
. Then there is the Cabot Trail. A must drive ( 3 or 4 hours is all ). And for history there is the Alexander Grahem Bell house and musem
. As well as some other really nice golf courses. Sydney is a great place to stay. The Delta Hotels, Loose Moose pup & grill, is a great spot, as is Badeck and Glace Bay. I wish it were me....You need more time to see the rest of Nova Scotia. Peggy's Cove, Lunemberg, Bridgewater, Digby, Halifax, but that would take a whole lot longer to visit. Enjoy your trip and give us a post when you get back and tell us of the highlights...cheers !!!

Love the Glen Breton distillery -- a must stop, even if you're not a big single malt fan (though it may turn you into one). The AGB museum in Baddeck is top notch -- guarantee that you'll learn at least a half dozen things about the man that you never had any idea about.
I'll take Lunenburg or Blue Rocks over Peggy's Cove anyday (the former are gorgeous, the latter a tourist trap).
And Fortress Louisbourg is literally a time machine. Incredible place.
