Nova Scotia (PRWEB) August 21, 2008
Among the best souvenirs of any Nova Scotia vacation are the memories that last a lifetime. Now, visitors to Nova Scotia have the opportunity to share those memories with the rest of the world through a new user-generated section of novascotia.com.
Favourite Places in Nova Scotia allows the website's visitors to share their vacation stories, upload photos, and suggest great destinations and experiences to others. The topics range from seacoast adventures and outdoor excursions, to historic destinations and family events. Even the people of Nova Scotia are included as a reason behind a great vacation. Additionally, visitors may use the blog as a resource for leaning about popular Nova Scotia hotels, restaurants, pubs, and more.
Nova Scotia Tourism has made it easy for anyone to share their Nova Scotia vacation memories, favourite places and events through the new section. Visitors can input their thoughts and give it a title, specify its category and the region in which it's located, and upload a photo to be posted alongside their text. Registration is not required and submissions can be completed quickly, although users are encouraged to share as much detail about their maritime vacation as possible and any corresponding website links.
Already, visitors have posted their thoughts and photos of special destinations and activities--walking the beach on the coastal side of the Annapolis Valley in Halls Harbour, dining at Halifax's many restaurants, camping at Five Islands Provincial Park on the Bay of Fundy, relaxing at a cottage on the Eastern Shore, and swimming at Marble Mountain Beach in Cape Breton.
Favourite Places in Nova Scotia is located on the main page of novascotia.com or by directly entering http://novascotia.com/en/home/blogs/favouriteplaces.
