This region is composed of four provinces that are mostly islands and peninsulas on the northeast portion of Canada. This group of provinces is also known as the Maritimes or the Maritime provinces. They are surrounded by many waterways, including the Atlantic Ocean, Labrador Sea, Bay of Fundy, Gulf of St Lawrence and the Cabot Strait. With all of the water around this region, you can bet there is plenty of delicious seafood available. Nova Scotia is home to Halifax, the most populated city in the region. Travel on the scenic Cabot Trail around Cape Breton Island and explore Cape Breton Highlands National Park, an excellent park for hiking. Visit Nova Scotia's Eastern Shore for the expansive beaches and year-round surfing or Peggy's Cove Coastal Region and Lighthouse or Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site during your visit to Nova Scotia. New Brunswick is mostly dense forests so it has a bit different climate than the other provinces in this region. Areas of interest along the New Brunswick coastline include The Bay of Fundy, Fundy National Park and the Fundy Trail Parkway scenic coastal drive. Reversing Falls Rapids is a unique place to see rapids change course and direction with the tide changes in the Bay of Fundy and the Saint John River. Prince Edward Island is the smallest Canadian province by size. It is reached by several different modes of transportation, either by taking the ferry, by flying into the Charlottetown airport or driving across the Confederation Bridge from New Brunswick. Visit Prince Edward Island National Park or tour the Anne of Green Gables sites from the classic book all across the island. The province of Newfoundland and Labrador is made up of the mainland Labrador, to the northeast of Quebec, and the island of Newfoundland. On Newfoundland, visit the beautiful Gros Morne and Terra Nova National Parks. Several National Historic Sites can be found on Newfoundland; including Signal Hill, L'Anse aux Meadows, Castle Hill and Cape Spear Lighthouse National Historic Sites.
