Picnics & Patios: Yarmouth and Acadian Shores

Grab your favourite blanket, load up the car and hit the road or take a stroll to your favourite restaurant, winery or beer garden because whether you’re looking for a fun-filled day of adventure or an afternoon of relaxation, Nova Scotia has the picnic or patio for you.

Yarmouth & Acadian Shore

This is where the land meets the sea. Where English and Acadian cultures coexist. It’s quiet and peaceful, yet full of adventure. And where the darkest skies let stars shine their brightest. It’s where the food is fresh and local, and the music is too. It’s where everything comes together. It’s where the stars align.*

Picture-Perfect Patios

Enjoy a traditional lobster boil at what some call ‘a little piece of heaven on Earth’. Ye Olde Argyler Lodge is snugly located on Lobster Bay overlooking Old Point Channel. You can enjoy a large pot of boiled clams, mussels, lobster, corn and potatoes while you sit on the shore and watch the sun set.
