Canada’s second-smallest province is virtually surrounded by the sea, and the ocean’s salty waters pulse through its historic veins. Novia Scotia’s rich folklore is steeped in sea-related superstitions together with First Nations fables, Acadian myths, Scottish legends and ghost stories. Here, fishermen have cast their nets for centuries and the abundance of contemporary seafood restaurants and historic lighthouses breathe life into their traditions. Bradt’s Nova Scotia tells visitors where to eat the best smoked fish, find the most stunning beaches and pick the plumpest wild blueberries. Delving deeper than any other guide, it reveals the best of the province both on and off the beaten track.
