If you like smoked fish, J. Willy Krauch & Sons is the place for you.  The fish is smoked in Krauch’s own traditional Danish-style smokehouse and some say it’s the best they’ve ever tasted. Take the time to peruse their wall of memorabilia – photos, laminated letters from Buckingham Palace as well as clippings of reviews from the New York Times and the Chicago Tribune.

These are just some of the things you can do while visiting or exploring the Eastern Shore in Nova Scotia.  We want to see your photos and hear your stories this summer, so make sure to tag us in your Twitter, Facebook and Instagram posts! #TasteofNS
