Nova Scotia travel guide

The best time to go to Nova Scotia is between May and October!

... so save this travel guide for later !

I feel Nova Scotia is a great affordable quick and sweet get away.

Canada is so beautiful from west to east coast so many beautiful places to explore in our own home.

There are tourist but not an overwhelming amount, its a very laxed trip .

One of the most popular destinations in Nova Scotia is the Cabot Trail. This scenic drive takes you through the Cape Breton Highlands, offering breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean, rugged coastline, and rolling hills. You can stop at the many lookout points along the way to take in the stunning scenery and snap some photos.

We did the skyline trail- It is the shorter trail but still has amazing views. We drove all along the Cabot Trail stopped at some scenic sights to take photos and a small cafe.

Whale watching is a must! We were super nervous that we may not see any, but ended up seeing so many including a few baby whale's. We signed up for the :Captain Zodiac Whale Cruise in Cheticamp.

Cheticamp is a small town with not much to do but still worth going because you will be spending all your time outside, on hikes and seeing the sights. We ate dinner at the Pizza Shack in Cheticamp- it was really good! We only spend 2 days here, we drove up one day and drove back to Halifax the next day after driving the Cabot Trail.


Halifax is a vibrant and exciting city that has something to offer everyone. With its rich history, beautiful waterfront, thriving arts scene, and stunning parks, it's no wonder that Halifax is such a popular destination for both locals and visitors alike. Whether you're a foodie, a history buff, an art lover, or an outdoor enthusiast, you're sure to find something to love about Halifax.

There are so many great restaurants, shops and parks. Everything is walking distance, its perfect for a low-key day. I recommend going in the morning and evening. There is a University very close to the downtown core of Halifax so the night life is bumping!

The people are also so friendly, it is such a nice atmosphere. The houses are stunning I recommend going for walks in neighbourhood because each home is so unique and stunning.

Places we want to in Halifax:

Dinner : Gio

For lunch : The bicycle thief - for lobster rolls

Peace by chocolate - some amazing chocolate!

Tarte and soul for cofffe and the best cinnamon roll


Another must-see attraction in Nova Scotia is the historic town of Lunenburg. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a well-preserved example of a British colonial settlement, with colorful houses, narrow streets, and a bustling harbor. You can take a guided tour of the town to learn about its fascinating history and cultural significance.

It is such a cute place to get lost in. Going in and out of shops, up and down roads. Has a lot of hidden gems, great food and shops. We went to Peggy's Cove first before driving up here because the distance between the two is short and you can do both of them in a day!

overall, the east coast is a must visit. It was a super chill trip, if you want to just relax and not have a crazy itinerary this is such a great place to go. You are never bored, but always relaxed, the people are so friendly, there is so much beauty everywhere you look, and it is so affordable.
