Every parent knows that travelling with kids has its ups and downs, but if the kids are happy, everyone’s happy. Helen Earley has travelled across Nova Scotia to find the very best kid-friendly adventures so families can make the most of their time together. The result is 25 full-day adventures and memory-making experiences that include options for every season and price point.
There’s something for everyone in this collection — from a family hike through history on McNabs Island to exploring the beaches of Queens County, or going down a coal mine in Cape Breton. Helen Earley has included a range of activities that will appeal to all ages. She highlights adventures — especially less well-known ones — for every season. There are tips on the best time of day or year to visit, how to save money and the all-important information on where the bathrooms and snack bars are located. This book takes the leg-work out of planning your next family adventure or road trip so that you can focus on having a good time. The goal is to help every family achieve maximum fun with minimum stress.
