Nova Scotia visitors will find Visitor Information Centres scattered throughout the province. These centres are a great resource for the traveller. Some of these are run by the provincial government while others are run by the local community.
Either way, they are a great source of information. The folks are friendly and will help you out with all of your questions.
Just look for the familiar "?".
Experience one of the most beautiful drives in the world!
The ocean awaits you.
