Visitor Information Centres
in Nova Scotia

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 "?".

The Nova Scotia Tourism department has many resources for the traveller.  The Doers and Dreamers Vacation guide book is one of the best that I have seen. You can download a free copy of the travel guide.

Call one of these numbers and ask for a Nova Scotia travel map be sent to you.  You can get maps at the Visitor Information Centres as well.
