Find best campgrounds and RV park to discover breathtaking scenery of Nova Scotia’s coastline, explore Cabot Trail, visit Cape Breton from best gateways…
Nova Scotia is one of Canada's three Maritime Provinces.
It is also the second-smallest province in Canada, but it is quite densely populated.
The capital of Nova Scotia is Halifax, which itself is a great place to visit.
You will find here several institutions related to art. So consider for example to visit the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Neptune Theatre, Two Planks and a Passion Theatre, Ship's Company Theatre and the Symphony of Nova Scotia.
The remarkable scenery and fascinating coastline is Nova Scotia’s major attraction. Charming bays and tiny islands along the shores make this province one of the favorite tourists’ destinations.
Some of the nicest national parks that are worthy to see are the Cape Breton Highlands and the Kejimkujik National Park. The Cabot Trail scenic road passing through the Cape Breton Park features spectacular mountain and ocean views. It is a kind of Pacific 1 but this time on the east coast of the continent; certainly “road often traveled” for all it has to offer.
Nova Scotia's adventure tour specialists take you on a journey through Cape Breton Island. Once rated as the #2 island destination in the world by National Geographic Explorer. Truly one of the most peaceful and beautiful places on earth and the jewel of the east coast of Canada.
And then one more natural wonder, a “must-to-see” is the Bay of Fundy. This is a place where the tides span the range of up 50 feet! Be careful, it is dangerous because water is coming so fast towards the shore, but at low tides a stunning landscape opens in front of us….

Because of the fresh water fishing and sandy beaches, people tend to head to this providence before others. You will see attractions; all natural of course, that will leave you breathless. You might want to go kayaking or just take out a paddle-boat on the lake and enjoy the sunny day of peace and quite with nothing but wildlife sounds ringing out over the waters.
