Where to stay in Nova Scotia

About Nova Scotia

Bordering the Atlantic, most activities in Nova Scotia revolve around its beautiful coastline, from thrilling water sports to scenic hikes and spotting whales, puffins and seals. Visit a quaint harbor town, explore some of Canada’s most historic landmarks and take a memorable road trip down the coast.

Things to do

Start your exploration of Nova Scotia at Old Town Lunenburg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and 18th-century French harbor town with colorful wooden homes. You can also visit the Halifax Waterfront Boardwalk to browse the boutique shops and sign up for deep-sea fishing tours, then stop for fresh fish and chips at one of the waterfront restaurants.

History enthusiasts shouldn’t miss the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site of Canada, which is a large hill that overlooks the city and boasts a star-shaped military fortification. Browse the fascinating artifacts in the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic and tour the 100-year-old CSS Acadia.

Step back into the 1700s at the Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site, where you can rub shoulders with French soldiers and watch cannon firings at the bustling harbor. Snap an iconic photo of Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse, then indulge in fresh lobster at the nearby fishing village.

Take an epic road trip along The Cabot Trail to capture views of the coast of Cape Breton from oceanside cliffs. Walk The Skyline Trail in Cape Breton Highlights National Park, where you can watch a sunset over the Gulf of St. Lawrence.

Getting around

Nova Scotia can be accessed by flying into Halifax Stanfield International Airport, while Prince Edward Island is a 3.5-hour drive away. There are buses connecting to New Brunswick and ferries travel from Portland, Maine and Argentia in Newfoundland. In Nova Scotia, the best way to get around is by car.
