Be Sure to Take Your Camera to Peggy's Cove

Peggy's Cove is located some 43 km to the southwest of Halifax. It's a historic fishing village with a timeless charm and is one of the most picturesque places to visit in Nova Scotia. Its foggy Atlantic coastline conditions make the small lighthouse that perches rather perilously on granite bluffs an important focal point for mariners, if not for tourists, who love to take a picture of the lighthouse from every possible angle. Stroll along the fishing wharves and colorful boathouses and breathe in the scent of fish, algae and rotting rope. Ah, this is the historic scent of Nova Scotia! The village itself boasts lovely period homes and several excellent art galleries line the main road that snakes through this remote community. Be sure to try some freshly caught fish dish in the local eateries.
