Why choose New Nova Scotia?
The Nova Scotian culture
is a quirky character with Acadian, Mi’kmaq, Scottish and African
Nova Scotian foundations; a passion for the past; and an unparalleled
love of a good kitchen party. From the spectacle of an Antigonish
Highland Games to simple storytelling around a sacred fire to searching
out your family tree in small town archives, there are endless ways
to experience your own personal Nova Scotia.
Halifax is Nova Scotia's capital. With more than 250 years of history
under its' belt and all the action and energy of a bustling cosmopolitan
port, Halifax packs a whole lot into an amazing place. Stroll the waterfront boardwalk past historic sites, shops and attractions such as the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. The nightlife in Nova Scotia also leaves a lasting impression
Nova Scotia’s natural environment is diverse and inspiring. You might find yourself canoeing traditional Mi’kmaw routes, wandering along spectacular coastal trails, relaxing on one of our many beaches, sea-kayaking around islands, marveling as a whale breaches in front of you, rafting on the world’s highest tides, or revealing 300 million-year-old fossils.

eagles. In addition, golfers, cyclists, hikers, music lovers, history
buffs, fly fishers, kayakers and travel writers all agree: a visit
to Cape Breton Island has got to top your list.
