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 "?".
