By Car

The only overland route to Nova Scotia crosses the Isthmus of Chignecto: a narrow neck of land that joins the province to New Brunswick. The TransCanada Highway (Highway 2 in New Brunswick) becomes Highway 104 in Amherst, the first town after the border. From there you can make it to Halifax (connecting to Hwy. 102 at Truro) in two hours. Alternately, you can opt for a scenic drive up Route 6 (which runs along the coast of Northumberland Strait) or down Route 2 (which hugs the Fundy Shore).
