When you live at The Crossing, things to see and do are just minutes from your home.

Windsor/West Hants

Walk on The Crossing Community Trail or stroll around the Fort Edward National Historic Site. The Avon Valley Golf Club, Ski Martock, parks, lakes, and beaches are nearby.

King’s-Edgehill School offers Aquafit and senior swim programs as well as the school of performing arts presentations of well-known musical performances.

Choose authentic wood fired pizza or Italian cuisine, fine dining or down-home cooking. Drop into a pub or wine bar, winery or craft brewery. There are many choices for places to eat or sample local products.

See a play presented by the Quick As A Wink Theatre Society. Check the lineup of artists at the Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia. Put the Hantsport Music Festival on your calendar.

The area’s incredible history is carefully preserved. One of several area museums is the Windsor Hockey Heritage Museum. It recognizes Windsor as the cradle of hockey. It’s located within Haliburton House, home to a local author who gained fame in the Victorian era.

Speaking of history, the annual Hants County Exhibition, established in 1765, is North America’s oldest agricultural fair! A more recent event, the Windsor/West Hants Pumpkin Festival, includes an unusual “sailing regatta”, featuring giant pumpkins as watercraft!

Annapolis Valley

Explore the Valley’s farm markets and wineries, dining and outdoor recreation.

Hike Cape Split Provincial Park.  An amazing view is your reward.  Watch the incredible Bay of Fundy tides while enjoying lobster at Hall’s Harbour.

In spring, attend the historic Annapolis Valley Apple Blossom Festival. In summer, take in celebrations like the Kingston Steer Barbeque or Annapolis Royal’s Paint The Town event.  Enjoy amazing food, films and celebrity chefs at Devour The Food Film Fest in October. Winter brings the Eagle Watch in Sheffield Mills, and Icewine Festival events at area wineries.

The Valley is home to Acadia University in Wolfville.  Check out its Performing Arts Series or its Lifelong Learning program. For additional Valley points of interest.

Halifax Regional Municipality

Treat yourself to city shopping, dining and entertainment.  The cities of Halifax and Dartmouth, and communities of Bedford and Sackville are part of the Halifax Regional Municipality.

Bedford is just a 30 minute drive.  There you’ll find well known stores, boutiques and fine dining.  Halifax is just another 15 minutes away, with shopping malls, the renowned Neptune Theatre, Symphony Nova Scotia, parks and a wide selection of restaurants. Major stars perform at the Scotiabank Centre and the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo is a spectacle you’ll talk about for days.
