Nova Scotia



Though Nova Scotia is a land tied intrinsically to boating and the sea, the best way to see it today is by car. The province is divided into six tourist areas: Fundy Shore and Annapolis Valley, Northumberland Shore, Cape Breton Island, Eastern Shore, South Shore, and Yarmouth and Acadian Shores.

The provincial government's Web site includes interactive software that lets you plan your route easily. With 11 scenic driving routes, it is easy to investigate everything from Halifax (the capital) to historic forts, superb parks and nature reserves.

The scenic drives are at their best when they take you along the province's ever-changing coast—you'll see working ports, beaches, nautical museums and replicas of historic vessels.

Although there are plenty of activities to discover along the way, you may find that your favorite thing to do is simply drive and look: This is a startlingly beautiful land, full of lush fields, green mountains, ocean vistas and magnificent, rocky shores.
