Nova Scotia Tourism Guide
Welcome to Nova Scotia!Located on the Atlantic Coast of Canada, Nova Scotia is a remarkably scenic province that is known for its friendly hospitality and abounding maritime culture. Nova Scotia is Latin for New Scotland, and the region's Celtic heritage makes it an appealing destination for visitors from around the world. The capital of Nova Scotia, Halifax, is a beautiful port city that boasts a myriad of attractions, including the historic Citadel and Pier 21—Canada's tribute to its vibrant immigrant heritage. Other Nova Scotian must-see destinations include Cape Breton Highlands National Park—which was a prominent port of entry for brave adventurers arriving from Europe; the peaceful fishing community of Lunenburg; Peggy's Cove—which boasts one of the most famous lighthouses in Atlantic Canada; and the Fortress of Louisbourg—a National Historic Site that pays homage to an early French settlement over 250 years ago.
