Long before its first kayak hit the water, East Coast Outfitters (ECO) established a commitment to helping the local community as well as the environment. The eco-tourism company is based in the small fishing village of Lower Prospect, which suffered a massive collapse in the groundfishing industry. To help the town recover, the company started employing residents as guides, maintenance workers, and even office managers. Today, ECO put the area's cultural heritage and abundant wildlife on display at the same time through sea kayak tours and watercraft rentals. Every tour and skill-building or certification class departs ECO's floating wharf under the watchful eye of at least one expert guide. These guides have all completed a rigorous eight-month training program, and are certified by Paddle Canada and in Wilderness First Aid, making them quite capable of assisting paddlers. Most excursions are suitable for all experience levels and range from the half-day to multi-day tour, plus special trips at sunset. Tour guides lead kayaks past the rocky coasts of wild islands and explore sheltered inlets. Sometimes, local wildlife such as eagles, seals, and whales make appearances.

From its founding in 1908, Art Gallery of Nova Scotia has brought residents the chance to see historic and contemporary art from across the province, continent, and globe. The collection?all 15,000-plus pieces of it?focuses primarily on artists with ties to Nova Scotia, including Maud Lewis, whose life story rivals her paintings in color and vibrance. The tiny house in which she lived and painted, itself a work of art, is on permanent display in Halifax, the result of joint rescue efforts from the gallery and the province. The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia stepped up its commitment to making local and international art accessible to all citizens with the 2006 opening of the Western Branch, located in Yarmouth. While the branch is still not old enough to drive or apply to art school, the building is as historic as the work it contains, complete with Corinthian flourishes and a cornerstone laid in 1912.

Since its Toronto location opened in 1976, Yuk Yuk's has been a collective launching pad for such comedy heavyweights as Jim Carrey, Rick Moranis, and Russell Peters. All of Yuk Yuk's laugh-establishments invite seasoned jokesters and up-and-coming comedians to their stages every weekend for up to four days of high hilarity and three nights of cozy lodging atop their cocktail tables. Many Yuk Yuk's locations offer drinks, dinner, or bar fare during the show, but those interested in dining should contact their club of choice to find out about reservations.
