For centuries, Nova Scotia has been the gateway to Canada.  From the arrival of the earliest explorers like John Cabot, to Samuel de Champlain’s band of hardy adventurers determined to settle an untamed world, to waves of Scottish immigrants and British soldiers, to German farmers from the Rhine Valley - Nova Scotia has welcomed them all.

The past is present every day in Nova Scotia. Explore the colorful fishing town of Lunenburg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Relive a day in the life of 1744 at the Fortress of Louisbourg, the largest reconstruction of its kind in North America. Pass through the immigration sheds of Pier 21 National Historic Site where over a million immigrants, troops, war brides, and evacuee children started their new lives.

Today, you can also enjoy excellent seafood dining, eloquent and hospitable lodging and breath-taking views in an area unlike any other.
