Wondering what there is to do on a Nova Scotia Vacation? Though not an island, Nova Scotia extends away from mainland Canada such that it is almost entirely surrounded by water and boasts over 120 accessible beaches.
Settled in turn by the French and English, you can’t help feeling that the Scottish ancestry is most prevalent – the name itself meaning ‘New Scotland’..
Nova Scotia INTRODUCTION
Not surprisingly, the character of Nova Scotia is greatly influenced by its storied seafaring past. Fishing is a major industry and lovers of seafood will not be disappointed with cod, lobster and scallops regularly on the menu. Halifax – the capital city and the largest in the Maritimes – also boasts a colorful history dating back 250 years. An important economic center with a busy port, Halifax is also a leading center for higher education and enjoys a youthful vibe from its five universities.
