Wolfville: The Perfect Weekend Getaway

Wolfville is only an hour drive from Halifax. Surrounded by the Bay of Fundy and the Farms, it offers an abundance of nature. In summer, the city appears to be lively and vibrant. Here are some of the best things that you can do when you are in Wolfville.

  • Wine Touring

You will find the highest number of wineries in Wolfville. The best to enjoy the tour is to avail the Magic Winery Bus. This will take you through the different wineries of the city. I loved how each of the wineries was different from the other. With this tour, you will get an in-depth look into the wineries and the story it has to tell.

  • Visit the breweries, distilleries, and cideries

Wine is not your thing? Do not worry because there are many other tasting alternatives. Wolfville has been popular for growing apples. If you want you can go on a cider tasting tour. It is open 7 days a week. There is also the option to visit a brewery. Visit Paddy Brew Pub and do not miss out on the blueberry pale ale. In case you are up for some something stronger, drop in at Tangled Garden and drink the herb liqueurs and delicious fruit.

  • Grand Pre

One of the great attractions of the city is the Grand Pre. This national historical site truly awed me. It represents and tells the story of the Acadian community. The site also includes a memorial march and movie for you to check out. I also loved the garden that is on display.

  • Local events

Wolfville is always lively with the various live music and annual events taking place. One of the most stunning festivals that I heard about during my stay was Devor! Film Food Festival, it is celebrated to commemorate the influence of film and food.
