"Canada's Ocean Playground" is more than just a clever slogan. But you already knew that.
Nova Scotia is dotted with well-known beaches including Lawrencetown, Lockeport and Inverness, and each community also has a seaside locale that is known just to those who live nearby.
Last summer we compiled a list of hidden gems to help guide you when you just needed to escape from the demands of everyday life and into a special world. This summer we are adding a few more to the list, but not just beaches, there are some other landmarks worth a visit or two.
We have also not just stopped at the border of Nova Scotia but dared to cross the line into Sackville, N.B. and one of its hidden treasures.
We hope to inspire summer adventure in our communities.
Perhaps you can plan your summer getaways around a tour of one of these hidden gems.
Perhaps you’ll consider this guide a challenge to find your own hidden gem along the shores of your local ocean playground.
Either way, we hope you enjoy. And we hope to see you at the beach… or on the walk ways of some or our other hidden gems.
