Serving as the capital of Nova Scotia, Canada, Halifax is a perfect starting point for a beautiful Canadian adventure, so swing by our local Cruise Canada rental center at 3070 Highway 1 Upper Sackville before you get started on a tour of the stunning views and endless activity of one of Canada’s finest provinces.
With your family packed up in your Cruise Canada rental RV, a cold soda and a full tank of gas, it's time to crank the engine and begin your journey of the great city of Halifax! Halifax is a water lover’s dream and due to Nova Scotia’s vast area, taking your motorhome as your main vein of transportation is a safe bet in this sea dweller's paradise. Halifax metropolitan surrounds the Bedford Basin and the Halifax Harbor; it is surrounded by piers, docking areas and is home to exciting attractions such as the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. You can find this museum in the Halifax historic waterfront. The museum is a great place to explore the rich heritage of the Nova Scotia people and their ties to the sea. Check out thousands of pictures from fishermen past, shipwreck artifacts and sailors' souvenirs. And though Halifax offers tons of outdoor and indoor activities like fishing, pub hopping, camping, zoos and museums, you may want to “hit the road” as soon as possible in order to take in all of the surrounding areas that Nova Scotia has to offer.
After touring the various sites of the beautiful Halifax, hop back on the road and head just 10 minutes north, towards Dartmouth. Dartmouth is a great little area with beautiful natural scenery and plenty to do. Perhaps you'll want to visit the local waterfront farmer's market on Saturday mornings, where you can pick up fresh food at affordable prices; all while enjoying live music and waterfront scenery. This food is going to be very convenient as you hop back in the RV and head up NS-102 N. towards Glasgow, Nova Scotia. Glasgow is a pit-stop for the sportsmen of the bunch. This area is a great place to spend a couple of hours just “putting around”. With golf courses for all ages and ability levels, Glasgow is a great place for the family to get out and shake off before your next destination to the gorgeous Cape Breton Highland National Park. Once there, you can be one of millions to take what is known as a one-of-a-kind drive down the Cabot Trail. This is said to be one of the most stunning drives in the world. This 10-hour drive is such a unique route. You'll be thrilled as you experience winding trails, mountains, whiffs of the ocean air, sights of wildlife, as well as catching seasonal festivals, markets and restaurants in the small towns along the way. This drive is a top-rated attraction amongst visitors from all around the world, so do not miss out!
Nova Scotia is simply one of the most breath-taking areas amongst our Canadian locations and Cruise Canada wants to get you on the road as soon as possible so that you and your family can experience these things first hand! Call us today for more information on securing your Halifax RV rental.
