Nova Scotia- what you might not know about it

Nova scotia for adventure, wine, food and value

Let’s talk about Nova Scotia. This beautiful place is quite underrated.

Need some highlights on why to visit?

  • You’re always close to the ocean with the over 8200 miles of coastline.
  • The center of Halifax is actually a star but the heart of the city is enjoying the patios, relaxing on the beaches, and exploring urban streets.
  • The Cabot Trail is ranked one of the most scenic drives in the world and has 26 hiking trails.
  • 12 whale species are known to swim in Nova Scotia waters.
  • It’s under the radar. It’s not crowded.  Availability isn’t as big of an issue there as it is in Europe. With destinations becoming hugely popular, seemingly overnight, it’s a matter of time before this hidden gem is discovered by everyone. Get there first.
  • Nature, nature and more nature. It’s an outdoorsy destination, with gorgeous scenery and plenty of outdoor activities such as hiking, kayaking, fishing, and more.
  • It’s laid back and the perfect place to really get some true R&R.
  • Wine region. People don’t think of Nova Scotia for wine, but there are over 800 acres in 7 different regions across that province that are growing grapes for wine.
  • Nova Scotia is well know for it’s lobster (from a beach side lobster boil, incredible lobster rolls and even lobster beer) but there are some other great local food to try.  Donair (spiced meat cooked on a spit and sliced ever so thinly and served in a pita) is the official food of Halifax.  But also check out Digby scallops, wild blueberries, dulce (edible red seaweed), oatcakes and acadian rappie pie.
  • Incredible value. It’s a very cost effective region. Which makes it great for a budget-friendly vacay.
  • Easy to self-drive. Well signposted, on the same side for American travelers, and not much traffic.
