Sailing Pictou Harbour - NS Tourism

Vibrant Town. Friendly People. Lively Culture.

The Town of Pictou, centrally located on the Northumberland Shore, is an ideal location to start a small or medium size business, raise a family and enjoy a quality of life second to none. Pictou offers numerous amenities including restaurants, accommodations, a traditional main street as well as banks, hospital, park areas, walking trails, historic waterfront, museums and recreational facilities.

Where else can you find a five-minute drive to work, a lunch break in the comfort of your own home, catching your children's soccer game minutes after leaving the office or meeting friends on the waterfront for coffee? Your day transitions from work to play within minutes.

Whether you prefer period homes on tree-lined streets, modern residential properties with ample land or well-planned neighbourhoods there is a 'home' to fit your lifestyle. Enjoy our seaside community steep in rich history that offers a true sense of being home.
