Of course, visiting just one place, regardless of its popularity, will only ever provide you with a narrow glimpse into the wider rhythms and life-ways of a region. So try to set aside some time to discover Nova Scotia's other cities, attractions and landscapes. Head 19 miles (31 kilometers) north from Mavillette to Yarmouth, where you can enjoy the Yarmouth County Museum and Frost Park.
Journey back in time during your time in Nova Scotia. Take a trip to one of the traditional villages for which this place is renowned. Get outside and explore Nova Scotia's many open-air museums, lighthouses and farms.
Cool off upon the region's waters with a spot of sailing or surfing. Learn from the wisdom of the locals with your pick of cycling tours, culinary tours and city walking tours.
The 1st of July is Canada Day, so if you're vacationing here at this time, be aware that some attractions may have changed opening hours as the nation celebrates.
There is no doubt about it, Mavillette is a spectacularly beautiful spot that you will linger in your memories for many years to come.
