Day trip from St. John to NS on ferry without a car

Been searching quite a bit online on things to do or how to travel around without a car and not coming up with much. We are coming up from Boston to St. John for a long weekend and don't see the point of spending a lot of money taking our car over on the ferry for a day trip to NS. Is there enough to do in Digby for a day (we are athletic folks, so open to hiking, biking, walking, other stuff).

Otherwise where should we go within that time period? Thanks!

I am not an expert on Digby but I would say it is not the best place to be without a car. Check out this list of things to do in the area and see if any of interest are possible without a car: https://www.tripadvisor.ca/Attractions-g1549…

You could just go east in New Brunswick to explore the Bay of Fundy: Hopewell Rocks and the Fundy Parkway. Google these or post on the New Brunswick forum.

You really need a car when you get to Digby. The ferry terminal is not close to "downtown" which is not big to start with. Visiting Annapolis Royal or Church Point which should be on the list when visiting the area is not really accessible via transit.

this is a link to google maps for the walking times https://goo.gl/maps/3cYCPXsGKPw

and streetview for a virtual tour https://goo.gl/maps/dy524cJagTy and if you move the yellow pegman along the route you will see that getting there is not pedestrian friendly https://goo.gl/maps/Cb6minwqmu42
