Along the Northumberland Strait between Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia, fishermen spend their days earning a living doing what most people can only dream of. Nova Scotia, after all, is one of the largest exporters of seafood in the world.

Halifax, the capital city, is a lively tourism and business hub that offers dining, shopping and a diverse culture.

Nature lovers can explore the Kejimkujik National Park and Historic Site or the Cape Breton Highlands National Park.
