Nova Scotia Destination Overview

Nova Scotia is a wonderful mix of diverse cultures, blending together Scottish heritage with its tartan, Acadian French ancestry, native Mi'kmaq and African culture for a unique and interesting experience unlike anywhere else.

Quaint towns with homes and lighthouses look like something out of a picture book as waves crash on to the sandy shores. Each city provides a variety of things to do and see ranging from exciting outdoor adventures to thrilling nightlife, tasty eateries and educational museums.

Cape Breton Island is perfect for hiking trails and photographing beautiful natural scenery throughout the national park or paddling a kayak out into open waters to catch a glimpse of a whale pod. Head into Halifax for a quality dining experience followed by a night full of dancing to a group from the city’s killer stellar music scene.

The province is also home to many museums that display its ethnic heritage where you can learn the history of the area, examine ancient artifacts and collectibles and discover fascinating facts about Nova Scotia. For example, Nova Scotia means “New Scotland” in Latin, its provincial tree is the Red Spruce and its provincial flower is the Mayflower.

All of these experiences are made even better by staying in on a of Nova Scotia’s many vacation rentals that put you right near the action or the peace and quiet, depending on what you’re looking for.

Nova Scotia Rental Features

Not only do vacation rentals allow you to stay exactly where you’d like and offer the necessary amenities to make your trip a comfortable one, but they go above and beyond with extras and bonus features to really offer you that home away from home feel.

Sometimes after a long day of sightseeing or hiking, all you want is a warm, home cooked meal. You’re in luck because rentals in Nova Scotia come equipped with full service kitchens or outdoor grills where you can whip up a culinary delight and enjoy in the privacy of your own space.

When the weather turns chilly, it’s comforting to slip into a hot tub or cuddle in front of a fire. Enjoy a romantic evening with you special someone as you keep warm. On the other hand, in the summer months the whole family can enjoy splashing around in a private pool, enjoying each other's company as you have races and play water games.
