Canada's Ocean Playground

Everyone know how much I love Canada and for the longest time, I have wanted to showcase Canada on my blog. So, I've decided to ask Canadian bloggers to answer 5 questions about their province.
This week, Sara, from Ms. Sunsine, is answering questions about Nova Scotia.

1. Where are you from:
Halifax, Nova Scotia

2. Favourite thing about your province:
I'm not sure, it's just home. I've never lived anywhere else, and truthfully I have no interest in moving.

3. What is your region (province and/or city) known for:
Well, for the hockey fans out there Sidney Crosby and Brad Marchand are both the area. Along with this year's #1 NHL draft pick Nathan MacKinnon.

Maritimers in general I think are known for being warm, welcoming, helpful people. Nova Scotia is also the home of the Bluenose and the final resting place for a number of people who lost their lives on the Titanic.

4. Where to:
a) Stay:
If you're going all out, I'd stay at the Prince George Hotel in downtown Halifax. I've never actually stayed there, but I would love to. Outside the city there are tons of beautiful little B&Bs.
b) Eat:
For a relaxed, casual night out with friends our favourites include Your Father's Mustache on Spring Garden Road and The Red Stag Tavern on Lower Water Street. A visit to Nova Scotia isn't complete without a lobster supper – for that I recommend the Shore Club in Hubbards.
c) Go/what to do:
Roam around on the waterfront, or visit one of the many museums or historic sites (like Citadel Hill). If you're heading outside of the city you should definitely visit Peggy's Cove, or Kejimkujik National Park. Nova Scotia also has a number of beautiful provincial parks, my favourite is Taylor Head on the eastern shore.

5. A "must know" about your province:
We're not all fishermen. :-) I've never fished once in my life. (Though I do love seafood!)

Thanks Sara for taking the time to answer these questions!!
