Peggy's Cove

Nova Scotia is all but surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, save for the narrow stretch of land that connects it to New Brunswick and the rest of Canada.  Halifax, the capital of Nova Scotia, sits on the eastern coast, where scenic highways hug the coastline and meander through historic, smaller towns.

One such town – home to the famous lighthouse – is Peggy’s Cove, a quaint, historic fishing village that dates back to 1811.   If you visit the Cove, be sure to bring your passport, because the post office will happily stamp it with its inimitable “lighthouse” postmark.

But don’t be too quick to venture out of lovely Halifax.  Take some time to check out the Citadel – the star-shaped stone fortress that looms over downtown.  And a visit to the  top notch Maritime Museum of the Atlantic is a must.  It houses a long history of shipbuilding and seafaring – including memorabilia from the Titanic.
