Nova Scotia

Understand

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 LaHaveLaHave. See http://acadie2003-2005.ca for a full celebration schedule.

Nova Scotia

Get around

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.).
