Plan Your Trip
New Glasgow has forged itself into the hub of Northern Nova Scotia. Its small-town feel with close-by amenities makes it the perfect travel destination to get away while still being accessible. Featuring the scenic East River, this former host of historical shipbuilding now serves as the backdrop of several walking/biking trails that run alongside it. It is also close to the New Glasgow Farmer’s Market, home to products of local farmers, small businesses, and artists. Don’t forget to see who is performing at the Glasgow Square Theatre, a venue for many performing arts events, including the annual Riverfront Jubilee, a three-day event that showcases the best of East Coast music. One of Nova Scotia's most popular beaches is just a short 20-minute drive away. Melmerby Beach is known for its warm waters and many amenities that make it the perfect travel destination for the whole family. There is a variety of accommodations in New Glasgow and the surrounding area for traveling. Fully equipped cottages, cozy inns, bed and breakfasts, or familiar chain hotels.
