About Lighthouse Route, Nova Scotia
Take a road trip along Lighthouse Route, in the Canadian province of Nova Scotia.
From the urban area of Halifax to the southwestern town and port of Yarmouth (nicknamed "The Gateway to Nova Scotia"), the 211-mile Lighthouse Route offers magnificent scenery and many lovely communities to visit.
Explore the downtown area of the Halifax Peninsula, for example, enjoy the coastal attractions in the community of Bayside, and, of course, drive down the beautiful Lighthouse Trail in the rural community of Peggy Cove.
Don't forget to take a pit stop and relax at Crescent Beach! (Be sure to bring your camera - it's really beautiful there)
