Nova Scotia is an ethereal peninsula that juts off of Canada's eastern coast into the Atlantic Ocean. It's array of geography from dense, rich forests to windswept, rocky shores and fertile inland orchards make it the perfect vacation spot for those who enjoy scenic travelling.

Only in Nova Scotia can you enjoy such a unique combination of European history as well as a celebration of cultural diversity.

You can visit historical landmarks such as Fort Louisbourg and Halifax Citadel. Step back in time and view the Capital city, Halifax, from the Citadel, a fortress completed in 1856 and in use by British and Canadian Forces until the Second World War. Experience the Victorian age recreations of soldiers training in the courtyard - kilts and all! The Citadel also portrays soldier's wives and civilians in it's authentic recreations.

Nova Scotia's history also plays a role in of one of the largest sea tragedies, the sinking of the Titanic, and is home to the graves of the largest concentration of the victims.

If you enjoy the scenery or want to take an active vacation there are several scenic trails that meander through Nova Scotia's inlands and coastal areas.


There are also hiking, canoe, kayaking and biking routes and tours.

Spring is welcomed with the traditional festivities of the Annapolis Valley Apple Blossom Festival in May where you can enjoy parades, celebrations and the breathtaking beauty of some of the loveliest apple orchards in full bloom. The fall is equally admired with the landscape becoming a fire of brightly colored trees painting the hills and valleys with orange, yellow and red.

Enjoy the barren, rocky landscape of Peggy's Cove and visit the most photographed lighthouse in the world. You'll also be impressed with the awesome power and beauty of the ocean crashing and spraying over the rocks. Nova Scotia's Bay of Fundy is home to the world's highest tides - so watch out when enjoying the many beaches that cover 100's of kilometers of coast.

If you enjoy city life, than you'll love the quaint pubs, shops and the art shops of the historic properties in Halifax. There is also high style shopping on Spring Garden Road or you can take a glimpse of works by up and coming artists at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design - a leading visual arts university in North America for more than a century.
