2020 is proving to be a year like no other. We are all waiting for travel restrictions to be lifted and some indication of what this summer might look like. This may be the year to stay and play at home.
Nova Scotia may be a small province but it offers travelers an incredibly beautiful and diverse landscape full of historical sites, outdoor adventures and local attractions. Museums, forts, theater, art galleries, sea kayaking, river rafting, surfing, wineries, breweries and cideries, farm markets and world class dining. Nova Scotia truly has it all. This may be why more than 1 million people visit this province annually. Here is a very small selection of the things to see and do in Nova Scotia.
