Springhill

If you're not going to be visiting Cape Breton, Springhill (on Highway 2) is worth a stop since it gives you a second chance to sample Nova Scotia's music-and-mining combo. This town was both the birthplace of acclaimed songstress Anne Murray and, before that, home to the ill-fated coal mine immortalized in "The Ballad of Springhill" by Peggy Seeger and Ewen McColl.
