Introducing Yarmouth

Yarmouth is the biggest town in southern Nova Scotia due mostly to the ferry that linked the province to Bar Harbor (Maine) since the 1950s. Sadly, the ferry service stopped in 2010, although there were plans for starting it up again in 2011 with a new boat; if not, Yarmouth could be in for some tough times. The only really pretty area is out beyond town around the lighthouse, but like anywhere in the province, stay awhile and the people will win you over.
