I love Canada’s Maritime provinces and who doesn’t? With the friendliest folks on the planet, a laid back vibe and abundant seafood, it’s a summer lover’s dream. But there’s more to this land of thick forests and windswept beaches. Maritime travel is ideal for tight wads (like me), who like to watch their pennies even when they’re on the road. I was thrilled when visiting the Maritimes last month at how blessedly cheap it all was. Here’s a look at why tight wad travellers ought to Maritime it!
Luxury Hotels in the Maritimes Aren’t Crazy Expensive
It’s summer, it’s high season, hell it may even be a long weekend, but the most expensive rate we saw was $120 a night. I was floored by this considering we were staying at lovely historic hotels like The Great George in Charlottetown, Dalvay-by-the-Sea on PEI’s Cavendish Coast and The Algonquin Resort in St. Andrews.
