The Cabot Trail – Nature & Heritage

Without a doubt the most scenic drive in Nova Scotia is the Cabot Trail. This winding, hilly highway that circles the coast of the upper end of Cape Breton Island, should be a must on every vacationers itinerary. The views are breathtaking. One’s experience on the Cape Breton Trail is entirely at the mercy of the weather. If it is wet and foggy, as it frequently is in the spring and early summer, there is a chance that the blue waters of the Atlantic that crash into the shoreline along the trail will be obscured. We drove the trail on […]

Annapolis Vallery North – Acadians, Wine & Swifts

The Annapolis Valley is one of the most scenic regions of Nova Scotia. It is well known for its agriculture, in particular vineyards, and orchards. From the highway and the villages in the valley there are dramatic views of the steep headlands on the coast of the Bay of Fundy. A drive through the valley takes you through several peaceful and quaint maritime towns and villages scattered among the gently rolling hills.

Peggy’s Cove – A Mandatory Day Trip from Halifax

Peggy’s Cove is likely the cutest seaside town you have ever seen.  Depending on the route you take (I prefer the taking Highway 103 from Halifax and connecting to Highway 333 so that you pass through French Village and Indian Harbour before reaching Peggy’s Cove.) you will need 40 – 50 minutes to drive to Peggy’s Cove.  During the busy seasons, it’s recommended to arrive early so as to avoid crowds. You have to plan to drive back or continue on somewhere else, because Peggy’s Cove is primarily for looking, not staying.  The town captures the essence of an Atlantic […]

Today it has a population of approximately 3800 full time residents though this number doubles during the school year when students arrive to attend Acadia University. This influx of energetic youth gives way […]

The Maritime Museum of the Atlantic (located at 1675 Lower Water Street Halifax) has a permanent exhibit, which was updated with new artefacts including a mortuary bag and a carved table leg.  Many Titanic artefacts have been spread all over Atlantic Canada – […]
