Reward your senses as the traditions and legends of the sea come alive along the Marine Drive. Follow this special route through a land of pristine coastal beauty, where quiet shoreline roads lead through romantic seaside villages and the past is a colourful part of everyday life.
Experience the sights and sounds of Nova Scotia’s past in award-winning living-history museums: a fisherman’s store and traditional cookhouse at Memory Lane, a 1940s village in Lake Charlotte; a blacksmith’s hammer ringing at his forge and a picturesque sawmill in a thriving 19th-century town at Sherbrooke Village
At Canso, step aboard for a short boat ride to Canso Islands National Historic Site, one of our earliest European settlements. An interpreted trail around the island leads past the remnants of a once-thriving fishing and merchant community of the early 1700s.
