    1. A wine tour in Annapolis Valley (we have great cideries too)
    2. Wandering through Halifax’s many great galleries and artisan shops
    3. A boat tour in the Bay of Fundy

    The Bay of Fundy is an obvious one, but it’s touristy for a reason. Whales. Incredible geological formations. Beautiful birds. And 150+ billion litres of tidal water flowing in and out of the bay twice a day! I love it.
