Lots of good riding in Nova Scotia, and lots of history if you're into that stuff.

Halifax has lots to offer tourists. Citadel Hill, Farmer's Market, waterfront boardwalk, lots of tours (harbour hopper, tall ship silva, local tasting tours, ghost walk, keith's brewery tour, etc). Peggy's cove is a short run from Halifax that's popular with tourists, and offers some decent tarmac and scenery.

Mahone Bay, Lunenburg, Kejimkujik Natl Park, Digby, Brier Island (whale watching), and the Annapolis Valley are all on the West end of the province, and each offers something different/unique, as well as good riding to get there.

I'm sure the cabot trail is on your list, but consider adding fortress louisburg if you're a history buff. Some beautiful scenery in cape breton to say the least. If you're heading for cape breton from Halifax, take hwy 7, as opposed to the TCH. Well worth the extra time/distance. Lots of small fishing villages along the way, as well as sherbrooke village (again, if you're into history).

If you're planning to be in Halifax for a few days, let me know a few days in advance, and I can show you around a bit if I'm in town.

Hoito update ......

The Hoito is alive and well. I was told that the restaurant was to be renovated soon.

I was there in July for my yearly fix and there was no mention of closing. Made my heart skip a beat when you said it closed.

Probably the best pancakes are at Niva's. Despite the fact that it's a large restaurant, good luck getting in! (The old Blue Parrot to you, Greg)

Ok so pancakes at Hoito restaurant. Check

I appreciate the recommended routes to take. Im all about the scenic way.

I ordered a new set of tires, chain and sprockets, and front brakes for this trip. The old KLR should be race ready for spring. No problem.
