The Cabot Trail and Peggy’s Cove may be the highlights driving your interest to Nova Scotia, but don’t let those be your only points of interest. The food and drink scene in this beautiful Canadian province is an exciting adventure and one you shouldn’t miss out on.
Here are two alternate trails for your driving consideration…
The Good Cheer Trail
You’ll need a designated driver for this one. Meet Canada’s first winery, craft brewery and distillery trail! On this adventure, you’ll be able to sample local wine, beer and spirits from the people who create them, and learn how to pair them perfectly with the meals you eat. Taste the latest vintage, meet an award-winning brewmaster and sample a single malt whisky from the barrel. To top it off, the trail is beautiful. You’ll travel from Yarmouth to Cape Breton and view breathtaking landscapes, beaches and heritage sites along the way.
The Chowder Trail
Seafood fans, this is your calling! There are over 60 chowders in Nova Scotia and they’re waiting for your discerning palate to taste them and, through a healthy debate amongst friends, try decide which one was your favourite. That’s going to prove to be a difficult task, but try it anyway. Pick up a Chowder Trail Passport from a participating restaurant until October 19, 2015, and collect stamps from each restaurant you try a chowder at. Collect at least three stamps and you qualify for a prize.
