Laid-back living in Yarmouth

Set on the Bay of Fundy, Yarmouth is a characterful port town known for its friendly locals and world-class lobster. While Halifax tends to steal the spotlight, there's something special about this slice of Nova Scotia. It was once one of North America's wealthiest shipbuilding ports and is filled with handsome Victorian houses. You'll also find quirky museums, cozy cafes and some of Canada's best whale-watching opportunities. A speedy ferry service from Maine makes Yarmouth vacation rentals eternally-popular with Americans in search of laid-back vibes and fresh salty air.
