Description

A densely packed guide to Nova Scotia's most raucous adventures, inspiring landscapes, and amazing history, this book ensures that visitors to and residents of the region never have a boring weekend again. From tidal-bore rafting on the Shubenacadie River or strolling among lions at the Oaklawn Zoo to searching for ancient fossils on Joggins Beach, Day Trips from Halifax is filled with all you need to know about hidden beaches, unexpected hiking trails and much, much more.

ULTIMATE GUIDE
"This is the ultimate day trip guide and Jon Tattrie — a Nova Scotia born-and-bred journalist, author and off-the-tourist-trail explorer — is your ultimate guide.
— Stephen Kimber, Professor of Journalism, University of King’s College and author of What Lies Across the Water: The Real Story of the Cuban Five

 

PERFECT
A big reason why Halifax is one of the continent's great small cities: it's striking distance from a long list of fascinating day trips. Tattrie — with his clear eye and distinctive way with words — is the pefect guide.
— John DeMont, author of A Good Day's Work: In Pursuit of a Disappearing Canada and columnist The (Halifax) Chronicle Herald
