Stroll a pearly white beach, eat red hot lobster, sit by a crackling fire. Go on a take-your-breath-away hike, sip on a heady ale from our micro-breweries, Hell Bay or Boxing Rock, or wet your whistle on an Ironworks perfectly distilled spirit.  There’s something in the air here. You can taste it as surely as fresh salt spray on your lips.  Outdoor experiences & fine dining, lighthouses & wilderness, culture & history – come see us on the South Shore.

Yarmouth is home to the man who holds the Canadian record for hiding the most geocaches. Ervin Olsen (Ervined) likes to think of them as 1,213 different adventures and he takes pride in where he places his geocaches. He also has a particular goal in mind when he decides where to place them: helping geocachers discover more about the Yarmouth area.

Six Great Seacoast Drives in Nova Scotia

PetitEtangbeach-nearCheticamp.jpgSometimes 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.
