Road Trips And Car Stuff
Updated: Sep 7
Getting your fulls (driver's license) will be one of the most exciting things you ever do. You will have freedom and be able to get more done while having fun. Nova Scotia has many trunk routes and old roads that are very fun and scenic to drive on.
One of my favourite and fun things to do on the weekends is to go on a road trip adventure. Being from Nova Scotia I get to enjoy some of the most scenic roads in Canada. Many of the routes that are featured below are curvy and windy roads so it's important not to enjoy the gorgeous scenery too much as things will be changing quickly in front of you.
Remember that it's a good idea to ensure your vehicle is full of fuel, you have phone chargers, and be sure to pick up some snacks. Also keep in mind that if something goes wrong while on a road trip to rural areas you are much further from help. A lot of newer vehicles no longer come equipped with a spare tire so in those cases you would have no choice but to wait for a tow truck. Expect to see anything from wildlife to farm tractors and keep your eyes moving to ensure you stay alert. Most of all enjoy the drive and have fun.
Curvy Roads To Drive On In Nova Scotia
The Highway 14 loop goes from Chester to Windsor and makes its way through Cottage Country. This is a really nice trip which takes 2 hours and there is a gas station halfway down Highway 14 in case you need a pit stop.

This place is legendary. It's now in a state of disrepair but here's what it was like inside.
Highway 333 Peggy's Cove
The Peggy's Cove loop is another fun trip. It takes an hour unless you stop to view the scenery. This road is known as Trunk 333.

Lawrencetown Beach on the Eastern Shore is another great spot to visit. Take Trunk 207 from Cole Harbour to get there and you can expect to see some breath taking scenery as you drive along the coast.
