Military Museums · History Museums · Gardens

A vacation in Nova Scotia is understandably an ocean-based experienced, allowing you to stay within 60 km (40 mi) of the water no matter where you choose to base your adventure. Stay near the ocean, and you'll find mostly lighthouses and small settlements living off lobster fishing. Drive or cycle inland, and the landscape changes dramatically, with pretty orchards and photogenic highlands dominating the geography everywhere you look. For urban amenities during your Nova Scotia holiday, look no farther than provincial capital Halifax, offering the region's biggest range of shopping, dining, and entertainment options.

It's easy to get away from everyone during a vacation in Prince Edward Island, as this photogenic landmass features just a scattering of small towns housing warmhearted locals stubbornly clinging to their easygoing lifestyle.
