Nova Scotia


In the far east of Canada, Nova Scotia has long beaches, warm hospitality and some of the world’s best seafood. Try the lobster–you’ll stay awhile.

Whether you’re into tidal bore rafting on the Shubenacadie River, reveling in the sunshine of the Annapolis Valley or soaking up the nightlife of Halifax, you won’t be bored for long. After all, Nova Scotia is home to more universities and colleges than any other Canadian province.

Don’t forget to hike in the Cape Breton Highlands, especially the Skyline trail. Keep reading for more information.
