If not for a narrow strip of land separating New Brunswick and Nova Scotia at the junction of Highways 2 and 104, all of the province of Nova Scotia would be an island. Surrounded by Atlantic Ocean waters, it is popularly known as Canada’s Ocean Playground, and the overall warmest province by some measures. It was also one of the first North American regions to be settled by Europeans. Ocean views, beaches, the highest tides in the world, dinosaur relics, inspiring mountains and fruitful valleys, lakes and rivers, whale-watching, history galore, thirst-quenching wine—in this Atlantic Canada province you have all that is needed for an adventurous and memorable Maritimes trip!
Nova Scotia is ellipsis-shaped, and most visitors traveling by land (other options include taking one of the four ferries, or air travel) start by visiting the Amherst Visitor Information Center (90 Cumberland Loop, Amherst) on Trans Canada Highway enroute from New Brunswick.
