What a time of year to be in Nova Scotia. The colours of fall. The smell of crisp autumn air, the still slightly warmer weather of summer without all the humidity – It doesn’t last long, but it’s a fun time!
Here is a short, but sweet, list of some amazing adventures to experience in Nova Scotia during the fall months:
Most likely on many top 10 lists for best drives in Canada, the Cabot Trail is especially memorable late September, early October. The reason? The entire Highlands National Park explodes with the colours or autumn.
The drive itself is amazing, but with the weather still warm, there are some amazing hikes and camping adventures still to be had. Here are just a few:
- Skyline Trail
- Meat Cove
- Fisherman’s Cove
Nocturne is a celebration of all things art. The annual event takes place over three days in October. It’s a great way to explore the city of Halifax and get a sense of the amazing art scene. There are dozens of interactive and immersive exhibits and vendors spread out across the city and downtown Dartmouth.
The annual Halifax music festival has been going strong for over two decade. Held in late October, the festival brings local and international artists to venues across the city for four nights. If you’re a music fan, this is not an event you want to miss.
More than most places across Nova Scotia, the Annapolis Valley has countless fun things to check out during the fall months. Apple picking, pumpkin patches, corn mazes, and haunted houses; all are perfect weekend day trips to experience!
Try a bike trip along the Rum Runners Trail. A former railway, the trail is designed for bicycles, walking/running, ATVs, and even horseback. The 123KM trail runs from Halifax to Lunenburg. The St. Margaret’s Bay section of the trail is particularly scenic and ideal for bikes!
