Beautiful Nova Scotia can be divided up into seven regions, with each one offering something unique for your Cruise America rv rental adventure. Considering that Nova Scotia is only 314-miles long and 85-miles wide, it is also possible to combine activities in more than one region. The top places to tour in your motorhome rental in Nova Scotia are:
Yarmouth and Acadian Shores Region - Most of the communities that you will visit in this region date back more than 400 years. There are many great sea captains’ homes that are architecturally impressive. You may see many features that remind you of New Orleans when visiting here, because both areas share Arcadian roots. Visit sites like the Musée Église Sainte-Marie, which is the largest wooden church in North America, and don’t forget to try a local favorite; a meat and potato rappie pie topped with molasses.
South Shore Region - Located directly to the south of the Yarmouth and Acadian Shores region is the South Shore region, a popular spot in Nova Scotia. Many great artists have been drawn to the area, including actors and actresses performing at the Osprey Arts Centre, The Chester Playhouse, and the Astor Theatre. Narrow streets are filled with quaint shops, and the area is known for its great lobster.
From February to May you can participate in the Great Canadian Lobster Fishing Feast. You can join a crew of Nova Scotia lobster fishers for a morning at sea, learn about lobster fishing gear and equipment, and enjoy lunch of freshly caught lobster overlooking the ocean.
The Bay of Fundy and Annapolis Valley Region - Lying just to the east of the Yarmouth and Acadian Shores region, those staying in an RV rental can find giant cliffs, just waiting for them to go on a hike to see the 15 different species of whales that visit the waters just off this region`s shores. See fossils that are more than 300 million years old by visiting the Joggins Fossil Cliffs. When you stay in a rental motorhome in this region, then you are only steps away from some of the highest tides in the world, making for outstanding kayaking and canoeing.
Northumberland Shores - Shaped like an "L," this region is known for its warm-water ocean beaches. When you rent an RV in Nova Scotia, you will be set to explore this region`s exciting vineyards on a wine tour. See how maple syrup is collected and how they harvest oysters. Since this region is perfect for relaxing on the seashore, plan some extra days in your Cruise America RV if you have them ... it’s a beautiful spot to explore.
Halifax Metro Region - Turn your rental motorhome towards Halifax, where there is plenty to explore. This region has the second-largest ice-free harbor in the world, and it is filled with many attractions. See the Halifax Central Library that CNN described as one of the most eye-popping libraries in the world before heading to Pier 21 to learn about how immigrants helped build this area into what it is today.
Eastern Shore - Surf`s up in the Eastern Shore region, and it is begging you to catch the biggest wave, practically year-round. Play on this region`s beaches, which are perfect for building sandcastles. You will also want to learn about the area`s amazing history.
Cape Breton Island - It is easy to see why many have named the roads leading around Cape Breton Island among the most scenic in the world. This small island is also a great place to go hiking with many others in the 10-day guided hiking festival every September. Do not leave without visiting the Louisbourg Lighthouse.
