Nova Scotia has strong Scottish roots, but for a population of about a million it is remarkably diverse: with Mikmaq peoples, black Nova Scotians, French Acadians, Annapolis Valley farmers, lobster fishermen, and Haligonians all forming distinctive groups.
Unless you are a winter surfer, or like to snowshoe, then it is probably best to visit Nova Scotia sometime June-Oct when the weather is warm and the skies are blue. The main byways are along the coast, and a lot of small shops and restaurants are open around the coast during the summer months. Watch out for flies in the summer, however.
The province has lately begun celebrating its connection to Acadia - especially the 1604 arrival of Champlain in LaHave. See http://acadie2003-2005.ca for a full celebration schedule.
Halifax has the main international airport in the province. Flights can also be made to Sydney in Cape Breton from Halifax, or periodically from Boston, Toronto, or other Maritime cities. Ferry service is available from Prince Edward Island to Pictou, Newfoundland to North Sydney, or Maine to Yarmouth.
The Highway system in Nova Scotia is very simple. Starting at Yarmouth, The 101 and 103 Provincial highways (Notable by the flag on the top of the white sign) go around the shore, the 101 going along the Western shore through Digby and Windsor, while the 103 goes along the eastern shore. Both lead to Halifax/Dartmouth. Following out, the Provincial 102 goes to Truro. At Truro, one can opt to go to Ahmerst (To New Brunswick) or to New Glasgow via the Trans Canada 104. A ferry to Prince Edward Island can be found at Pictou. The Trans Canada leads all the way to the Canso Causeway, the one way to get to Cape Breton. The Trans Canada also leads to Sydney, and the Newfoundland Ferry at North Sydney. Be aware of road condidtions in the winter, especially away from major areas. Special scenic routes are labeled by specific signs, (Cabot Trail, Sunshine Trail, etc.).
EatDonair, a pile of roasted lamb or beef covered in mysterious sauce and wrapped in a pita. They're available at almost every corner diner and pizza place in Nova Scotia.
Dulse, most of this seaweed is harvested in Nova Scotia. Locally it is dried and used as a snack.
Nova Scotia produces some very good wines. Most wineries offer free tours. Of particular note is Jost Winery 2 (http://www.jostwine.com/) along the Northumberland Strait north of Truro.
Try the local beers. Nova Scotia is best know for Alexander Keith . Try also the Propeller (http://www.drinkpropeller.ca/beer/)
Many national parks and hiking areas can be found around the province.
