Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia is located on the East Coast of Canada, and is the country’s second-smallest province. While it’s not an island, most of the province is surrounded by water. In fact, there’s around 7500 kilometres of coastline in Nova Scotia!

With plenty of coastline to explore, gorgeous beaches to enjoy, historical attractions to visit and stunning scenery everywhere you look, Nova Scotia is an amazing place to visit.

In fact, it’s such a great place, that after visiting Nova Scotia on three separate road trips to the East Coast, we decided to call it home. We spent our first year in the province exploring as much as we could, and fell in love with Nova Scotia even more.

Below you’ll find a few of our tips on Nova Scotia, including plenty of tips on our new hometown of Halifax/Dartmouth. We hope you love it just as much as we do!
