Plan a day of adventure in the picturesque seaside town of Guysborough. From boating and kayaking on Chedabucto Bay to having a sweet treat from Days Gone By Bakery and sampling rum or vodka at nearby Authentic Seacoast Distilling Company, experience the pristine beauty and friendly culture of the Eastern Shore.
Take a trip back in time when you visit Nova Scotia’s largest museum, Sherbrooke Village. Learn about our heritage from costumed interpreters, including blacksmiths, potters, weavers, quilters, and printers and be sure to have your picture taken at Canada’s only Ambrotype glass photo studio!
Nova Scotia really is the spirit of the perfect road trip. Around every turn is something new to discover. Whether it's a vibrant seaside town, the perfect spot to get ice cream, a one-of-a-kind shop, or a beautiful sandy beach, you're bound to find something you'll love. All you need to do is hop in the car, turn on your perfect road trip playlist, roll the windows down and go explore all that Nova Scotia has to offer.
While we've created some of our own road trips, we know there's still more discover. You don't have to take our word for it - we've asked our Facebook community for their ideas and they've given us some great ideas for road trips to take all year long.
Sometimes there is no greater feeling than getting in the car and just driving. Abandoning all chores and grocery stores and just being free. Opening the windows and letting the breeze blow through you hair. Even better if the breeze is from the ocean and the air is salty and fresh. Finding unexpected treasures along the way, a roadside fruit and vegetable stand, an antique store or a café with fresh made goodies for the road. Packing a picnic, stopping for a walk along a beach you've never seen before, to clear your mind and stretch your legs. These are all the things that make a seacoast drive a must-do, just for the pure joy of it.
