New Glasgow

Whether you visit New Glasgow for a couple of days or a longer vacation, you will find plenty of cultural, historical and scenic attractions to keep you entertained.

Visitors to this part of Nova Scotia share space with roughly 20,000 local residents.

Halifax, the provincial capital, is roughly 80 miles to the southwest of New Glasgow, while Egerton is 8 miles to the east.

Some of the best family-friendly activities are Magic Valley Fun Park and Lismore Sheep Farm.

When you get the urge to spend some time outdoors, pack a picnic and enjoy some relaxation time at Victoria Park.

Want to escape the hustle and bustle of the modern world? Head out to Caribou/Munroes Island Provincial Park and Salt Springs Provincial Park. Lovers of nature will also have a great time at Green Hill Provincial Park and Powells Point Provincial Park.

Set aside a day or two to explore some of the favored cultural institutions in the area. Meander through the hallways as you check out the displays at the Sports Hall of Fame and the Sutherland Steam Mill. You might also want to consider a visit to the Northumberland Fisheries Museum and the Pictou County Military Museum.

You needn't be an art lover to appreciate the striking works at the Old Barn Gallery and the Crombie Art Gallery.

Eager historians can immerse themselves in the past at the McCulloch House Museum and the McCulloch Heritage Centre. The Carmichael Stewart House and the Colchester Historeum are also respected options.

History buffs will enjoy the Balmoral Grist Mill, Truro Town Hall and the New Glasgow City Hall. Enquire about a guided tour, get some pictures and discover the important events that made this region what it is today.

Take in the region's religious tapestry at St Ninian's Cathedral and Loch Broom Log Church.

Take some snapshots and talk to other travelers at Hector Heritage Quay and Caddell Rapids Lookoff Provincial Park, a pair of distinctive landmarks.

In an area of windswept seas and treacherous coastline, Arisaig Lighthouse and Lobster Interpretive Centre and Pictou Harbour Range Lighthouses have helped many ships safely to shore over the years. Caribou Lighthouse and Pomquet Island Lighthouse are also impressive structures. See if you can arrange to climb to the top. The view that awaits is a sight to behold.

People of all ages will find something that interests them at the Saint Francis Xavier University, a renowned educational institution. Those who left school years ago can appreciate the campus for its modern facilities, while aspiring young students can get a taste of what's ahead.

If you love fashion, food and gift shopping, head to one of the shopping centers and stock up. Some of the most exciting places to visit are Antigonish Mall, Truro Farmers Market and The Made in Nova Scotia Store.

There are some acclaimed performance houses here. Among its brightest stars is the Glasgow Square Theatre. Following the performance, have supper in one of the close-by restaurants or bars and enjoy the regional cuisine.

After checking out the better-known sights of the New Glasgow area, consider a visit to Pictou Marina, the Marigold Cultural Centre or the DeCoste Entertainment Centre.
