Nova Scotia

Regions
Nova Scotia is divided into seven scenic
travelways that lead around the province.

HALIFAX METRO
Old World Charm, New World Pulse
Halifax, Nova Scotia's capital city, was
founded in 1749 and is brimming with
history. Halifax is home to historic government buildings, galleries, museums, theatres,
restaurants, pubs, shopping and entertainment of all descriptions. Take a Halifax tour of
18th and 19th century architecture, the
massive star-shaped Halifax Citadel National
Historic Site of Canada or the bustling harbour
featuring the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic
and Pier 21 National Historic Site. Shop the
oldest farmers' market in North America,
featuring the very best of fresh, organic and

NOVA SCOTIA

Renowned for the highest tides in the world
at the Bay of Fundy, award-winning vineyards
scattered about the province, nationally recognized chefs at the helm of Nova Scotia restaurants and more than 550 festivals annually,
Nova Scotia is a place of remarkable natural
beauty and thriving culture.
Relax at Peggy's Cove fishing village, go on
a whale-watching trip, tour the Cabot Trail on
Cape Breton Island, experience Nova Scotia
golf, learn about Nova Scotia genealogy or
explore one of Canada's Seven Wonders-Pier
21-on a Halifax tour. Remember a Nova Scotia
accommodation can be found for every style of
getaway, from a seaside inn to a quaint bed and
breakfast or an urban Nova Scotia hotel.
Nova Scotia is wrapped in 7,600 km
(4,750 miles) of coastline. In fact, you are never
more than two hours from the coast. Along
with the world's highest tides and more than
100 breathtaking accessible beaches, our
coastline is home to untouched bays, beautiful
surfing spots and mirror-still coves-all perfect
for pristine seaside Nova Scotia vacations.
If you are looking for excitement, there are
more than 450 Nova Scotia restaurants in
Halifax and there are more pubs, clubs and
nightlife venues per capita than almost anywhere else in Canada. This historic city with
a population of almost 400,000 takes having
fun very seriously. Nova Scotia's cosmopolitan experience-from art galleries, live theatre,
shopping and spas to major sports events-is
presented against a setting of colourful history
and rich tradition.

international foods, local musicians and artisans. The historic waterfronts are where you'll
find great restaurants, live music indoors and
out and popular festivals and events that use
the harbour as a backdrop.

SOUTH SHORE
Historic & Vibrant
The South Shore vividly recalls Nova
Scotia's fishing and sailing past through
authentic fishing villages, white sandy
beaches, island-studded bays and our famous
lighthouses. You can also discover historic
towns, privateering legends and local artisans. At Peggy's Cove, the waves crash upon
the rugged granite stones and you can mail
a postcard from the only post office located
in a lighthouse. Mahone Bay is known for its
photogenic three churches and Lunenburg, a
UNESCO World Heritage Site, is home to the
Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic.

YARMOUTH &
ACADIAN SHORES
Discover True Acadian History
The southwestern-most tip of Nova Scotia is
renowned for its Acadian past, colourful fishing
villages, towering churches and the spectacular Cape Forchu lighthouse. Yarmouth, which
is about three hours from Halifax, is the hub of
this region. Just south of Yarmouth is Argyle
Township Courthouse in Tusket, the oldest
courthouse in Canada, while to the north, tiny

villages are overshadowed by lofty churches,
such as St. Mary's Church, the largest wooden
church in North America. The Acadian Shores
have a history dating back more than 400 years
and contain French-speaking villages like
Pubnico, which make up the oldest Acadian
settlement in the province. You can explore
this rich history and genealogy at Le Village
Historique Acadien and Le Musée Acadien et
les Archives. The Festival Acadien de Clare is
also a great way to experience the rich Acadian
music and culture.

FUNDY SHORE &
ANNAPOLIS VALLEY
Land of Orchards, Vineyards &
the World's Highest Tides
With tides that reach up to 16 metres
(54 feet), this spectacular natural phenomenon occurs nowhere else on the planet.
The power of nature is everywhere along the
Fundy Shore, with its rocky shores, broad
mud flats, and populations of whales, migrating shore birds and other marine life. Go
whale-watching off Digby Neck, kayak the
rugged coastline or try some world-famous
Digby scallops. This is also an area rich in
history. Some 400 years ago, early settlers
established their forts, farms and fishing
villages along the coast and in the fertile
Annapolis Valley. The Annapolis Valley is
home to Canada's newest wine region and
world-famous apple orchards.
