Nova Scotia-Heritage, Heart and Home
Five fantastic reasons to visit this beautiful province located on Canada's east coast.
1. Stunning Vistas
Whether you are venturing over the fantastic drive known as the Cabot Trail on the island of Cape Breton, or enjoying a fantastic summer sunset on the look-out in the Annapolis Valley, the fantastic scenery alone is worth the trip.
Roadtripping is one of the best ways to take in the fantastic views, and is easily the most affordable. Enjoy a stop over at a local bed and breakfast, or catch some local music at a downtown pub.
2. Lobster Suppers
From Jeddore to St. Margaret's Bay the shores of the province offer up a fantastic assortment of lobster suppers. Enjoy them at a local church, or fine dining on the water front. Better yet, find a seaside cottage and host your own lobster boil.
A mere 45minutes on the ferry will take you to the neighboring province of PEI, where the New Glasgow Lobster Suppers are known the world over!
3. Provincial Parks
From camping on the shores of the Minas Basin, to exploring wetlands and the migratory patterns of native birds, there is something for everyone in the parks of Nova Scotia. The provincial wild life parks are always worth the visit and make it easy to get to know our native species.
A number of picnic parks also give you the benefit of overnight camping, so bring the tent and the marshmellows and see if the stars of Nova Scotia shine as bright as your homeland.
4. Superior Sunsets
There's nothing as amazing in seeing fire in the sky. Nova Scotia offers fantastic sunsets, no matter which shore or village you are visiting and they are free of charge, all year round!
5. The People
Canadians are known for their manners and friendliness, but you've seen nothing until you visit Nova Scotia, where they work hard, play harder, and are always quick to extend their arms in welcome. Whether you've been invited to a good ol'kitchen party, or on a run with the boys, you'll find many friends who are going to make sure your visit is a memorable one. Afterall, they don't refer to it as Canada's Ocean Playground without good reason!
