A car is useful for exploring Nova Scotia.
The province is home to more than 8,000 miles (13,000km) of coastline, thousands of lakes, lush valleys, three national parks, four UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the world's highest tides, and good whale-watching opportunities.
There are golf courses, stellar hiking trails, lots of beaches, and quality kayaking and canoeing.
One of the region's best activities is to drive the famous Cabot Trail, voted one of the world's most scenic drives, as it weaves 186 miles (300km) through the Cape Breton Highlands National Park.
You might also like to tap into the creative itineraries suggested by the local tourism board, such as the Nova Scotia Good Cheer Trail, a route with stops at wineries, craft breweries, cideries and distilleries. For seafood fans, there's a Nova Scotia Lobster Trail, guiding you to all the best places to experience lobster dinners, lobster rolls, and everything in between.
