It's that time of year again. The time when Cape Breton shows off its most magnificent Fall colours and welcome visitors from near and far to the annual "Celtic Colours International Festival!":http://www.celtic-colours.com/
Nova Scotians have long known Cape Breton to be a golf destination, ever since the first round was played on a former Sydney pasture in 1895. However, the rest of the world is starting to discover just why we call the following six courses the "Spectacular Six". With golf that will both challenge and delight you, you'll find these courses to be on par with the amazing views they offer. You might even get to do some whale watching while you tee off.
Did you know there are over 100 beaches waiting for you this summer in Nova Scotia? With so many to choose from, it's no wonder everyone in Nova Scotia seems to think their favourite beach is the best beach around. Of course, the best way to figure out which one is the best is to start exploring them.
Nova Scotia really is the spirit of the perfect road trip. Around every turn is something new to discover. Whether it's a vibrant seaside town, the perfect spot to get ice cream, a one-of-a-kind shop, or a beautiful sandy beach, you're bound to find something you'll love. All you need to do is hop in the car, turn on your perfect road trip playlist, roll the windows down and go explore all Nova Scotia has to offer. While we've created some of our own road trips, we know there's still more discover. You don't have to take our word for it - we've asked our Facebook community for their ideas and they've given us some great ideas for road trips to take all year long.

Kayaking in Nova Scotia is an amazing experience. Cape Breton is a nexus for Celtic culture, great food and beautiful scenery. Combining the two for a three day festival of kayaking, stand up paddling and canoeing is nothing short of genius. "Cape Breton Paddlefest 2012":http://www.capebretonoutdoors.com/2012/events/cape-breton-paddlefest/ was exactly that.
This is the sort of place you can relax and let the stress flow away very quickly.
Our day really started once we arrived in Cape Breton.
Freestyle Skiing's Aerial competition at Ski Wentworth. (Halifax 2011/Dustin Hall)Nova Scotia's ski scene could be be one of our province's best-kept secrets. With the Canada Games in full swing, the secret is out -- and fans are loving it....
This walk follows the brook all the way to the end and the sound of the water takes all your cares away! When you finally make your way to the end the view is amazing! There is not one but two waterfalls that await you.
I can count on my fingers and toes how many times I have been asked to put a crab cake on one of my menus. I had them on my menu at the Five Fishermen for quite a long time, and after feeling blase about these bad boys, I decided to turn over a new leaf and create a new "cake".
We went on a beautiful sunny day last August, and it was fairly quiet on the greens. We'd missed the morning rush and the evening crowd. Ben and D tried to show me the ropes, so to speak. Knees bent, head down, follow through - all the usual advice. I had other plans... My version of golf (for the first few holes) was to whack the ball as hard as I could and see what direction it went in.
One day my Mom & Dad (he's the good looking guy in the pictures) were exploring the Cabot Trail and they took me to a great little spot called Black Brook Beach!
