Things To Do

About Pictou

Been in the car all day? Don't want to drive any more? Don't worry...the Evening Sail is a leisurely 10 minute walk to historic downtown Pictou and the town's waterfront. Dining, live entertainment, shopping and more importantly, ice cream, are only a short stroll away. Just remember that Pictou is built on a hill...it's a 10 minute walk there...but a 15 minute walk back. Better make it a double scoop so you have lots of energy for the trek home.

Beaches

Forget about the Bridges of Madison County and while away a sunny summer's day at one of the Beaches of Pictou County...or Colchester County or Antigonish County for that matter. Municipal boundaries aside, there are over 20 lovely beaches from Amherst to Cape Breton. Caribou Beach, my personal favourite, is only 10 minutes from our front door, and offers the best of both worlds.
