Located in eastern Canada and almost completely surrounded by the ocean, the province of Nova Scotia is a place where you can feel your pace fall in sync with the rhythm of the sea.

 The official website for Nova Scotia Tourism is www.novascotia.com. It contains information about the seven different regions in the province, attractions, events, road trip ideas and listings for all licensed accommodations. This site is also available in French and German versions.

For information on Nova Scotia in other languages, see the Canadian Tourism Commission's official website, which has information in Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Spanish.

 Visitor Information Centers are located throughout the province, including most major entry points.
