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.
