Truro's central location places it on many travelers' routes: this is rightly called "The Hub of Nova Scotia" because if you’re driving down the Trans-Canada Highway, you’ll have to pass by. Within Truro itself, watch for the Tree Sculptures, a creative tribute to trees killed by the dreaded Dutch elm disease. Artists have been transforming the dead trees into handsome sculptures of historical figures, wildlife, and cultural icons. There’s a large farmers’ market every Saturday from mid-May to the end of October.
