My top things to see & do in Nova Scotia

Louisbourg Lighthouse hiking trail

Whale watching

How does whale watching along the Bay of Fundy or in northern Cape Breton sound?

This is an adventure to be had while vacationing in Nova Scotia.  Seeing these magnificent creatures up close is an experience you don't want to miss. 

You have several options including the unique beauty of Brier Island on the Bay of Fundy and Pleasant Bay which is located along the Cabot Trail in northern Cape Breton.

Cabot Trail

How about driving the Cabot Trail on Cape Breton Island?

The Cabot Trail is one of the most beautiful drives in the world.  Exceptional coastal scenery dotted with hiking trails, beaches, waterfalls, campgrounds and small fishing villages.

It is a golden gem that will make your Nova Scotia vacation the best ever.

Halifax, capital of Nova Scotia

Have you been to Halifax, the capital of Nova Scotia?  A small city with a big heart!  In fact, Halifax has been ranked as one of the friendliest cities in the world by Cond√© Nast Traveler.

What do you know about Halifax and its connection to the Titanic? When the Titanic sank in 1912, Halifax was the closest major seaport and became the base for the recovery operations. The Maritime Museum of the Atlantic has a great collection that tells the story.

Bay of Fundy

Do you know what makes the Bay of Fundy one of North America's 7 Wonders of Nature? It is a natural wonder because it has the highest tidal range in the world. The bay's highest tides can reach 16 metres or 56 feet.  While the lowest tides can strand fishing boats in the bay's mudflats unable to move until the tides move back in.
