Visiting Nova Scotia on Your Next Road Trip



The easternmost Atlantic Province is the beautiful and historic Nova Scotia. Route 103 offers a pleasant drive along the Nova Scotia Atlantic coast, transporting visitors nearly three-quarters of the way around the province while offering plenty of opportunities to pull off at numerous, authentic, sleepy fishing villages. In central Nova Scotia, on the Bay of Fundy along Highway 1, you'll find the Annapolis Valley, one of eastern Canada's most fertile regions. This rich agricultural area offers its visitors bounties of fruits and other natural delectables. Carved by several large rivers, this serene landscape allows for many pursuits for history buffs, including the Port Royal Habitation, where the area's first settlers dug in to survive the sometimes unforgiving weather.

Some of Canada's grandest settings are found in Nova Scotia’s northern section, courtesy of the Cape Breton Highlands National Park. Lush evergreen-covered mountains rise up from a sea that is home to unrivaled salmon fishing. Enjoy the leisurely drive that skirts the park's perimeter, as few trips possess more dramatic views than the one around Cape Breton. But manage to keep your eyes on the road, too. The Cabot Trail, which traces the park's northernmost point, is a wildlife lover's paradise. Migrating whales are commonly observed along the coast, while inland dwellers such as moose (this is Canada, after all) and other majestic creatures can be found in the park's dense forest. After your visit to Cape Breton is complete, enjoy the scenic route along the peninsula's northern coastline as it follows the rim of Aspy Bay.
