Mention Nova Scotia and images of scenic coastal vistas, colonies of feathered puffins, and a variety of outdoor adventures immediately come to mind. Situated on the country’s eastern coast along the Atlantic Ocean, this province is commonly known as Canada’s Ocean Playground. From Yarmouth to Sydney, incredible sights and fun experiences abound in Nova Scotia.
When planning a trip to Nova Scotia, make your trip even more special by staying in a vacation rental. Take your pick from waterfront homes on Cape Breton Island, farmhouses near Wolfville, charming cottages in Lunenberg, and more. No matter what amenities you need or what type of accommodations you prefer, there is no shortage of places to stay in Nova Scotia. Another advantage of trading the need to reserve multiple, tiny hotel rooms for one spacious vacation rental is that everyone in your group will be happy and your budget intact.
Nova Scotia has a rich cultural history that is apparent when you visit area attractions, such as the Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site and the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site of Canada. Both offer insights into Canada’s history and are perfect places to spend time while exploring Nova Scotia. Decompress at one of the many public parks throughout the region. The Halifax Public Gardens are a delightful setting on a sunny day, and Cape Breton Highlands National Park has an abundance of local wildlife to observe and impressive seaside views that make the perfect backdrop for photos. While you’re in Nova Scotia, you can never go wrong finding a trail or body of water and exploring the landscape by hiking, biking or boating.
