This seventh edition of this popular illustrated guide offers independent, up-to-date information on Canada's picturesque east coast province. This guide covers all the major cultural attractions in Nova Scotia, from the music scene and fine dining, to world-class crafts and award-winning museums.
Following the province's established tourist routes -- including the Lighthouse Route, Evangeline Trail, and the Cabot Trail -- the chapters take visitors along the main routes from one community or landmark to the next, with helpful advice and suggestions, as well as historical information, along the way.
The chapter on Halifax highlights its historic landmarks, compact downtown, vibrant waterfront, cultural activities, shops and restaurants, all of which make the city a premier destination, particularly in the summer and fall.
Expert local contributors share their knowledge of golf courses, hiking and biking trails, sites for safe sea kayaking, and best beaches. More than 400 full-colour photographs show off every corner of the province. Detailed listings of accommodations, restaurants, events and activities, with phone numbers and websites complete this invaluable companion for anyone who wants to make the most of a vacation in Nova Scotia.
