During this summer season, the weather is definitely warmer specially when we live in crowded places or in the city. If you need to beat the heat of summer, here are some staycations you and your family will definitely enjoy in Nova Scotia!
Nova Scotia is called the Canada’s Ocean Playground for its lovely beaches in the South Shore. One of the best ways to cool down is going to the beach! From soft sandy strips to those strewn with sea tumbled stones, from secluded coves where the Atlantic blue gently laps the shore to those who host wide open expanses with waves for days, the beaches in the south are wonderfully unique and breathtakingly beautiful.
There are also a lot of beaches in the Queens County Region. One of which is the Beach Meadows Beach Park which is a well-kept secret beach park with soft white sand, shallow water, ample parking, a wooded picnic area, fire pits, a playground and boardwalks.
Stroll the picturesque boardwalk and visit the many shops and eateries where you will find delicious food, Maritime crafts, local paintings, unique folk art, and souvenirs to bring home at the Fisherman’s Cove. Located in Eastern Passage, Nova Scotia; this site is a wonderfully quaint and restored 200-year-old fishing village that is rich in history and offers visitors a peek into the past with a variety of modern-day activities and events for the entire family.
Adjacent to the popular Fisherman’s Cove, is the MacCormacks Beach Provincial Park in the Eastern Shore region at Eastern Passage. This park features an extensive boardwalk which is wheelchair accessible and provides a beautiful view of Eastern Passage, McNabs, Lawlor and Devil’s islands, Eastern Passage and Halifax Harbour. You can bring your snacks and drinks and enjoy the sceneries with the available picnic shelters.
You can also enjoy stress-free camping in Cape Breton. One of them is the Cabot Trail where you can spend two or three nights of camping, hiking and playing on the beach. Cape Breton Highland National Park has also unveiled its newest visitor offer, the Mkwesaqtuk/Cap-Rouge Campground. The front-country campground has a private, backcountry feel, with ocean vistas and views of the highlands and Cabot Trail cliffs. There are 47 walk-in sites, including five oTENTiks and six accessible campsites, with treed nooks to create a feeling of remoteness and privacy.
