This is the Nova Scotia chapter from Lonely Planet's Nova Scotia, New Brunswick & Prince Edward Island guidebook.
Nova Scotia may have gingerbread-like houses, picture-perfect lighthouses and waves lapping sandy shores, but it's also the raw Canada of fishermen braving icy seas, miners, moose and hockey - either way the locals are the most down-to-earth folk you’ll meet.
- people-watch along the waterfront and take in an unforgettable meal in Halifax
- sample French soldiers' rations or a general's feast c 1744 at Louisbourg National Historic Site
