Romantic Getaways in Nova Scotia & Romantic Vacations

Known as "Canada's ocean playground", Nova Scotia offers more than just an unforgettable coastline; it also gives couples the chance to rediscover one another. What awaits you is seaside adventure, a rich history and most important, an escape from the fast pace of the modern world.

Travel back in time and enjoy the history of the province while staying at the many romantic inns and B&Bs. Romance flourishes along the French Acadian shores, as far as the charming shores of the Gaelic peninsula on Cape Breton Island. If you're in the mood to stay in a picturesque village, try the famous Peggy's Cove at the mouth of the beautiful St. Margaret's Bay and experience the tranquil offerings of a real Atlantic fishing village.

For the ultimate romantic getaway in Nova Scotia, it may not get any better than Lunenburg - a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Couples are encouraged to walk hand-in-hand down the picturesque streets of and explore this historic fishing village. Plan your trip at the same time that the Bluenose II is in port and sail away into the sunset on this historic replica (the boat on the back of the Canadian dime). Experience historic life but with all of the modern conveniences you would expect from a first-rate romantic getaway in Nova Scotia.

No matter what road you take, you're bound for a scenic drive. Some of the world's most scenic highways encircle the province of Nova Scotia including the famous Cabot Trail which meanders along the shores of Cape Breton Island. Enjoy the rugged Lighthouse route which takes you along numerous wave-carved coves and, of course, past twenty functioning lighthouses. Take a time out and stop along your journey to sink your feet into the sandy beaches and warm waters, or view the seals basking on rocky outcrops.

But romance just isn't just available in the Nova Scotian countryside. Enjoy the urban adventures of Halifax, the regional entertainment, shopping and dining center. Take a tour of Pier #21, a national historic site which was Canada's ‘front door' to over a million immigrants and troops. Or take a leisurely stroll along the Halifax waterfront, or indulge in a sailing tour of the harbour to gain a different perspective of the city. When you're done, treat yourselves to a local seafood dish at one of the main Celtic taverns.

Nova Scotia offers plenty to do for couples seeking romance. Don't take our word for it... create a wealth of maritime memories with your very own Nova Scotia romantic getaway!
