Things to Do in Nova Scotia - page 2
This privately owned island is one of several hundred forested islands scattered around Nova Scotia’s Mahone Bay. According to local legend, Oak Island is the site of buried treasure—some speculate that loot was hidden by plundering pirates such as Captain Kidd and Blackbeard. Treasure hunters are still drawn here in search of booty.
One of the busiest districts in Halifax, Spring Garden Road is a major commercial and cultural district that got its name from the fresh spring water that flows underneath it, and has since become one of the trendiest places to be in the city.
For shopping options, you’ve got everything from small boutiques like All Dressed Up to well known national brands such as American Apparel. Here you’ll also find Bath and Beauty shops, books and stationery stores, children’s clothing, photography outlets, and just about anything else you need.
When it’s time to pause and relax, there are dozens of options for coffee shops, restaurants, and pubs and bars. Il Mercato serves up excellent Spanish dishes, while the Fickle Frog is the perfect place to go for a cheap pint of local beer and some pizza. Rogue’s Roost Brew Pub also has its own delicious flavors on tap. Find sushi options at Sushi Nami Royale, or if you just want to grab a latte, The Smiling Goat comes highly recommended.
One of the greatest perks of Spring Garden Road, however, is the opportunity for lots of people watching. You’ll meet some interesting characters around these parts!
