HOW TO GET TO SHELBURNE COUNTY
Nova Scotia is a peninsula, surrounded on three sides by water and Shelburne County is located on the western South Shore. This provides us with some of the most scenic coastline vistas in the world. Seaside fishing villages, isolated inlets and beaches a plenty await the traveler. Shelburne County is literally “thrust” into the Atlantic Ocean at the very eastern tip of Mainland Canada.
Follow the Trans-Canada Highway, Interstate 95, or a host of routes from the New England States and Quebec through New Brunswick to Nova Scotia and ….on to Shelburne County. From Prince Edward Island, you can take the Confederation Bridge or the ferry from Wood Islands, PEI to Caribou, NS.
If you are traveling from Newfoundland, you will enter Nova Scotia in North Sydney via ferries from Port aux Basque or Argentia.
