Explore Nova Scotia
Atlantic Canada’s Iconic Province
Though Canada’s second smallest province, Nova Scotia offers a world of culture, history, outdoor fun, seafood and local fare, and unmatched scenery.
An incredibly historic region of the continent, Atlantic Canada hosts some of the most impressive landmarks on the East Coast – especially in Nova Scotia.
Nova Scotia alone is home to 87 National Historic Sites of Canada, two Parks Canada sites, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and more than its share of iconic lighthouses.
Peggys Cove is famous for its heavily photographed Peggys Point Lighthouse – a major fixture of the Nova Scotia image, and found along the Lighthouse Trail. Other Nova Scotia lighthouses include Cape Forchu Lightstation in Yarmouth, Fort Point Lighthouse in Liverpool, and many more.
For you museum hoppers, the Nova Scotia Museum system is a collection of 27 centers across the province. NSM stops include the postcard-perfect Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic in Old Town Lunenburg, the Wile Carding Mill in Bridgewater, and the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in the Capital City of Halifax.
Outdoor adventure is found in Nova Scotia’s national parks. Cape Breton Highlands National Park sits on the tip of Cape Breton Island, while Kejimkujik National Park covers part of the western Nova Scotia peninsula. Adventurers and traveling families come for the fall colours of Cape Breton, and the sandy escapes of the Kejimkujik Seaside.
Summer visits to Nova Scotia yield full days on the golf course. Book a tee time in Halifax at Glen Arbour Golf Course – it’s a full 18 holes and plays to a par 72. Enjoy links-style golf at the 18-hole Cape Breton Highland Links, which was rated Canada’s number one course in 2012 by SCOREGolf Magazine. The Links at Penn Hills is a spectacular choice, with 18 manicured holes, and exceptional views of the Shubenacadie River.
Yet there is more to explore in Nova Scotia – from festivals and events to motorcycle tours. Trek the gorgeous Annapolis Valley and visit the village of Kingston, catch the historic Natal Day in Dartmouth, or make your way to the gateway city of Truro on a Nova Scotia road trip.
A crown jewel of the Maritime Provinces, Nova Scotia provides a coastal dreamscape for travelers hoping to find a world apart.
