Nova Scotia Information
Even though Nova Scotia – made up of the mainland, Cape Breton Island, and over 3,800 coastal islands – is the second smallest of the Canadian provinces, there are still tons of places to visit! Places you can't afford missing: Historic Shelburne, Yarmouth, Liverpool, Mahone Bay, Bridgewater, Lunenburg, Peggy's Cove, Halifax, Eastern Shore, Grand Pre, Wolfville, Annapolis Royal, Digby, Cape Breton, Clark's Harbor, Musquodoboit Harbour, Truro, New Glasgow, Antigonish, Canso, and so many more.
One of the most magnificent and unforgettable things about Nova Scotia is the Cabot Trail. The Cabot Trail is one of the most picturesque drives in the world, winding around the rocky brilliance of Cape Breton's northern coast, rising to the incredible highlands of Cape Breton Highlands National Park. The trail is carved into the sides of the mountains that rise high above the shimmering waters of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Look out to Cape Breton's shore where you can see whales just off the coast and bald eagles soaring in the air.
Visit the town of Shelburne's Historic Waterfront District, where the movie "The Scarlet Letter" - starring Demi Moore and Robert Duvall - was filmed! Home to six museums, the Historic Waterfront District of Shelburne also offers galleries, antique shops, gift stores, cafes, restaurants, bike and kayak rentals, a public marina, a fine arts center and theater, and so much more.
