Things To Do in Nova Scotia

Highlights From The Road to 150 Nova Scotia Episode

From May 27th to June 6th, 2017, we toured Nova Scotia as part of the Road to 150 campaign. It was our second province during our 150-day road trip and what an incredible time we had. From the absolute natural beauty of Cape Breton Highlands National Park to the historic beauty of Halifax, the small town charm of Lunenburg, and the excitement of tidal bore rafting, Nova Scotia is an incredible province to explore. Although we accomplished a lot in ten days, we really only scratched the surface of this incredible east coast province. Whether you’re looking for that laid back East Coast charm, maritime history, or incredible natural wonders, Nova Scotia is the place to visit!

This article is a summary of all the things we did, places we ate, and the places we slept during our Road to 150 campaign in Nova Scotia. We want to give a BIG THANK YOU to all the local sponsors below that helped make this trip happen as well as Tourism Nova Scotia and our major sponsor, Best Western, for helping us bring this project to life!

I really fell in love with these little birds, catching them in their annual migration down south. I couldn’t peel my eyes away from the absolutely majestic scenery. Everything was so silent and so smooth.

Then I looked besides me.

Towering next to me was the equally impressive Hopewell Rocks; a series of wonderful rock formation caused by tidal erosion. The biggest attraction in this neck of the woods is the largest ocean tides in the world. This area in particular rises and falls an average of 35 feet, twice per day. [Read more…]
