The Northern Shore, also called the Northumberland region, is the land bridge between Nova Scotia and New Brunswick and looks north across the Northumberland Strait to that other maritime vacation favourite: Prince Edward Island.
North Shore travel guide: things to do
- Go to the beach! There’s more warm-water ocean beaches here than anywhere else in Atlantic Canada.
- Enjoy local wines. The warm climate is ideal for the local wine industry.
- Try the delicious food with, you guessed it, fresh local lobster at all the region’s restaurants. (I found some really good seafood chowder too!)
- Visit the Anne Murray Centre in Pugwash (opens for the summer on Victoria Day).
- Visit Tatamagouche Creamery, begun by Alexander Ross in 1925. Over 1000 local farms supplied milk to the Creamery in order to produce its famous Tatamagouche Butter.
