What are some interesting/fun things to do in the area? Can you recommend any “hidden gems"?
Day hikes are easy and refreshing. Folks go outdoors on the weekends or to their cottages year round. - Sep 2020
Visit Pier 21 (Canada's equivalent to Ellis Island), the Titanic cemetary, the Citadel fort. Peggy's Cove for a scenic lobster fishing village and climbing along the rocks next to its iconic lighthouse. Cruising on the Bluenose schooner in UNESCO heritage village Lunenburg. There are small ski hills at Martock and Wentworth around 45-90 minutes away. Free ice skating on the Oval in winter (they will rent you skates for free if you hand over your id). Watching a taping of "This Hour Has 22 Minutes" (Canada's answer to The Daily Show). - May 2018
