Cabot Trail

The Cabot Trail is a 300-kilometer drive down the northwest coast of Nova Scotia where the region’s largest mountains meet the Gulf of St. Lawrence. It’s best visited during autumn when the colors are at their most vibrant.

Lunenburg has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site for its decades-long stand as a working port in Nova Scotia. The brightly-colored buildings and its award-winning Bluenose schooner, which won numerous international racing competitions before sinking in 1921, are the best attractions.

Shubenacadie Provincial Wildlife Park

This wildlife park located just 40 kilometers outside of Halifax is home to dozens of native and exotic creatures including black bears, cougars and wolves. Its most prized animal, though, is the Sable Island horse. It’s the only park in the world where you can see them.

Halifax Harbour

The boardwalk lining Halifax Harbour holds some of the best museums and markets in the province, including the Halifax Seaport Farmer’s Market and the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic.

Sherbrooke Village

Sherbrooke Village contains roughly 25 buildings harkening back to Nova Scotia living at the turn of the 20th century. While you can step inside and have a peek back in time in many of the buildings, a few of them are off limits. Come around Christmas for a beautiful display.

Holiday Light Show at Shady Brook Farm

Streets lined with festive holiday lights and decorations is a tell-tale sign the holidays are right around the corner. My favorite holiday tradition is going to Shady Brook Farm in Yardley, Pennsylvania, and driving through the Holiday Light Show. My family and I have gone pretty much every year since I was a little girl.

Disney Plus has been highly anticipated by Disney fans for years. The service launched Nov. 12 and had more than 10 million subscribers on day alone. The high demand caused Disney Plus to have some errors, but they have since been worked out.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
