Nova Scotia’s Lighthouse Route
On this East Coast escape, the journey is equally as important as the destination. Bypass Peggy’s Cove, in favour of Paddy’s Head Lighthouse in Indian Harbour. It’s just as pretty, much less crowded and you can tuck into fresh seafood at Ryer Lobsters for lunch. Home of Bluenose II, Lunenburg is one of the best preserved British colonial towns in North America, and worth exploring for the day. Take a break from sightseeing, and rest your head at White Point Beach Resort. Here, you have your choice of meal plans, different types of accommodation and complimentary kid’s programming. The best part? Hundreds of adorable rabbits roam the property!
