Where we had a trip to Ottawa already planned and are saving for a big trip to celebrate my retirement in 2019, we decided that we would stick to Nova Scotia for the rest of our vacation. Nova Scotia is beautiful in the summer. With so many places to explore you can do a different road trip every weekend.
Peggy’s Cove is always a must visit.
As is Mahone Bay.
Drives to the Valley for us are mainly to get fresh produce, you can’t get better strawberries anywhere, but the views are pretty nice too. Oh and I discovered the many Vinyard’s so well, now there are more reasons to go!
Lunenburg is busy this time of year but definitely worth a visit.
We visited Truro’s Victoria Park for the first, but definitely not the last, time this summer. Absolutely loved it and could not believe we hadn’t know about it until quite recently.
We also visited Nova Scotia’s longest beach, Martinique for the first time. It was a very foggy day but still easy to see how nice it was. Lots of surfers and body boarders.
Finally, we grabbed our granddaughter and headed to Halls Harbour on the Bay of Fundy. The Bay of Fundy is home to the highest tides in the world. Walking on the ocean floor and then a few hours later watching it fill in is always amazing.
That’s it for day trips. I hope you enjoyed my little Nova Scotia tour. Our next few weeks are super busy so we probably won’t get any more in until mid-September. By then the weather should be starting to change and the colours of fall will slowly arrive.
Next up though, our fantastic trip to Ottawa!
