Starting in 1793, York Redoubt was an important defensive piece of the British during its various conflicts with France. With straight line of sight to both the Halifax Citadel and Fort McNab, York Redoubt was the first line of defense as you approached the Halifax Harbour.
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.
I usually have to take two full trips around the store before I make any final decisions on my purchases, and I never leave empty handed. There is something magical about this shop, from the abundance of unique gift ideas, to antiques and exceptionally happy staff. This shop will always be my favorite to have on our agenda for our annual Christmas shopping trip.
Being that it was November (with no leaves left on the trees) we had an extraordinary view of the water most of our way and we even saw a partridge! The funny thing is that it wasn't until two days later that I realized the connection... we saw a partridge... on "Partridge Island" - how cool!
Not being 'crowd' people, our family prefers to take RV vacations out of season and the prospect of a Fall vacation in Nova Scotia was definitely appealing, not only for the spectacular Fall colours, but also because it provided the opportunity to travel at our own pace, making decisions 'on the fly' as to where we travelled and stayed.
