Amherst Vacation Packages

This is an area of Nova Scotia that approximately 9,000 people call home.

Visitors will find this destination 85 miles from Halifax, the provincial capital of Nova Scotia. It is also around 7 miles from Minudie.

At the Jost Vineyards, wine connoisseurs and newbies alike can learn about the art and craft of winemaking, before trying out the final product.

Take a well-deserved break from the stresses of travel at one of the leafy urban parks. You'll find plenty of locals whiling away a lazy day at Joggins Fossil Cliffs, Wentworth Provincial Park or Shinimicas Provincial Park.

If you are seeking some more information about the area, chat with the staff at Cobequid Interpretation Centre.

Looking to laze about for the day by the oceanside? Pack up a bag with some delicious treats and claim a spot at Second Beach.

Grab a buddy or two and explore some of the varied cultural spaces nearby. The Fundy Geological Museum and the Cumberland County Museum and Archives offer a range of displays and collections that are sure to capture your interest. You might also want to consider a visit to the Age of Sail Heritage Museum and the Fundy Ocean Research Center for Energy.

Journey back to days gone by and uncover stories of the past at the Ottawa House By-the-Sea Museum and the Wallace Area Museum. The Isabel Simpson Heritage Centre and the Bass River Heritage Museum are also worthwhile options.

To discover more about the area's colorful past, be sure to visit at least one of its many historic sites. Start your history tour at the Thinkers' Lodge National Historic Site or Parrsboro Lighthouse. When it comes to bygone times, there's always something else to know. Five Islands Lighthouse and the Springhill Miners Museum are two more great places to check out.

Cape Sharp Lighthouse is the perfect place to discover some local history and feel the salty air against your skin.

To browse through stores and pick up a few gifts, check out Tysons' Fine Minerals and The Pugwash Farmers Market.

Enjoy seeing established and up-and-coming artists strut their stuff at the Tantramar Theatre or the Ship's Company Theatre.

A couple of rounds at the Amherst Golf Club is a relaxing way to pass the afternoon. That is, if you can avoid the hazards and stay away from the rough! You'll also be able to practice your swing at the Parrsboro Golf Course and the Brule Point Golf.

If you're here when it dumps buckets of snow, there's no reason not to check out Ski Wentworth. Even if you're not a fan of skiing or snowboarding, there's still plenty of other things going on to keep you entertained.

Those looking for something a little bit different should also check out Parrsboro Lions Recreation Centre.
