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 the area has been fighting to get it back ever since. Without the ferry, Yarmouth has had a tough time. 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.
