    Dartmouth is located in the Nova Scotia province of the country of Canada. In the newly defined boundaries of Halifax County. It lies on the eastern seaboard of Canada, on the Atlantic Ocean and this is a part of the country that may often be overlooked, in favour of the cities such as Toronto or Vancouver. This is a huge mistake as holidays in Dartmouth will prove that there is plenty to see and do throughout this area.

    Things to Do on Holiday in Dartmouth, Canada

    Your holidays in Dartmouth can easily take on a watery theme: this is because there are plenty of lakes in this part of the world and the city lies right beside the Atlantic Ocean. This means that swimming and water sports are always on hand during the summer months.
