explore Great Escapes break Free From It All A Whale of a Time No matter the season, Nova Scotia offers up plenty of carefree fun. by meghan modafferi To see vineyards unlike any others, you could wait two million years, or you could take a trip to Nova Scotia. An ice-age glacier shaped the province’s land and set a canvas for vintners to create characteristically bright, crisp wines. Sample the region’s vintages at the Winter Wine Festival, which also features food, bonfires, and even sledding. Carefree fun abounds in Nova Scotia, an ocean playground on Canada’s Atlantic coast. But even when it’s too chilly to kayak, you can go whale-watching in Bay of Fundy, an “aquarium without walls” that draws migrating humpback, finback, and North Atlantic right whales. On the Bay of Fundy shoreline you’ll find fossils in the towering Joggins Fossil Cliffs — a scavenger hunt that’s exciting for both grown-ups and kids. You don’t have to get your feet wet to cannonball into maritime culture. The Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in Halifax explores the region’s connection to the sea and invites guests to reflect on the glamour and the tragedy of the Titantic’s voyage, which ended 450 miles southeast of Halifax. For history with a little more revelry, visit Alexander Keith’s Brewery, where costumed interpreters transport guests to the brewery’s first days in 1820. And when you’re ready to pub hop, you won’t have to go far: Halifax has the most pubs ★ november 2013 photos courtesy of nova scotia tourism agency 32 Clockwise from top: whale watching, bicycling, lobsters on the grill, and colorful Lunenburg shops per capita in Canada.
