Travel to Nova Scotia: Canada's New England

Written by Phillip Townsend

Continued from page 1

Not only is Nova Scotia a prime tourist destination, but cheap real estate and a reasonable cost of living make it an attractive second home. 1-acre oceanfront lots sale for as little as $15,000, while a three-bedroom home on a few acres can be had for as little as $60,000. It's no wonder that Hollywood heavyweights such as Jack Nicholson and Demi Moore have snapped up summer homes here.

Considering its close proximity, not many Americans make it to Nova Scotia. Of those who do, few are disappointed.

Why not go see for yourself?

If you go, stay at Stern's Mansion Victorian Bed & Breakfast. It's charming and conveniently located. See: www.sternsmansion.com
