From our community: Fall in Nova Scotia

By , on Tue, 24 Sep 2013 | 0 Comments

The end of summer in Nova Scotia is just the start of another amazing season. Heading out on a road trip among the bright yellows, oranges, and reds is one of our favourite things to do. Our annual Leaf Watch keeps track of where the leaves look their most colourful and give us inspiration to head out in search of the best fall has to offer. From to a day trip to the Annapolis Valley to pick apples to a weekend getaway to drive the Cabot Trail, there's no shortage of things to do in fall

But you don't have to take our word for it, find out what our Facebook and Twitter community have to say about their favourite things about fall in Nova Scotia.
