Top 7 Things To Do This Fall In Nova Scotia

One of the best things about Nova Scotia is we experience every season. Fall is the best season to enjoy nature’s colours and the harvest from local farms in the province.

We’ve assembled our Top 7 Things To Do This Fall In Nova Scotia and it includes something for everyone.

Weather you want to get in the car and drive to Cape Breton Island or stick close to home and explore, this list is for you. There’s even things to do in your backyard.

Make this Fall one to remember. More importantly, support local businesses because with COVID-19 there hasn’t been visiting tourists. They’re depending on us to make the most of the Fall season.

Most Nova Scotia U-Pick farms are open for the season and it's prime apple and pumpkin picking time. There is plenty more to do than just pick apples and pumpkins at the U-picks. Many have corn mazes and wagon rides available.

 Featured here is Noggins Corner Farm Market in Greenwich.

#2 Catch a glimpse of the fall colours on Cape Breton’s Cabot Trail

The most specular fall views in the whole province are on Cape Breton's Cabot Trail. Drive or motorcycle the trail and take in the sights. The vistas of colour will amaze you.

#3 Grab an ice cream on the Halifax waterfront

Be sure to grab an ice cream on the Halifax waterfront prior to the end of ice cream season. If you can't make it to Halifax, plenty of local ice cream shops are still open across the province.

#4 Visit a national historic site like The Fortress of Louisbourg

#5 Roast s’mores at a backyard campfire.

You don't have to travel far for a backyard campfire. Get a fire pit or approved appliance and prepare s'mores or marshmallows to be roasted in your yard!

Be sure to check local by-laws before lighting up.

#6 Visit the drive-in movie theatre

Nova Scotia is home to three drive-in theatres. They are:
Valley Drive-In Theatre
Highland Drive-In Theatre
Cape Breton Drive-In Theatre

Pop-Up Cinema is a new company operating in the HRM area offering drive-in movies. Their season is coming to a close, but they have a spook-tacular Halloween lineup planned. Check out their website for more details.

#7 Have a beer on a rooftop patio

While you're visiting Halifax stop by Spring Garden Road and visit Your Father's Mustache for a beer on their rooftop patio. People-watch or check out the changing leaves as you look over the Halifax Public Gardens.

Can't make it to Halifax? Check out a local restaurant or pub and enjoy their patio before it closes for the season.
