Antigonish is a beautiful university and medical town located in the Highland Heart of Nova Scotia, beween Halifax and Cape Breton Island. Despite its small population of around 25,000 Antigonish has many amenities and services along with a lively downtown full of one-of-a-kind boutique stores and excellent restaurants - including one that was voted "Best Restaurant in Nova Scotia". Try them all and judge for yourself!
Antigonish is also an outdoor lovers paradise with numerous deserted beaches boasting the warmest waters north of the Carolinas (really - but only in the summer!) Hiking, walking and driving trails abound as does canoeing, kayaking and sailing on the Harbour. The area also supports a strong artistic community along with one of the most vibrant repertory theatres in Eastern Canada.
