Pictou, Nova Scotia Group Travel Rates
The first group came to Pictou in 1773 aboard the Hector from Scotland. Today, groups come by car from Halifax hotel discounts about two hours away, by ferry from Prince Edward Island, or across the Bay of Fundy from Moncton hotel discounts in New Brunswick. Your group will find many quality hotels offering group discounted rates on rooms and meeting venues. The DeCoste Centre has a theatre, meeting spaces, outdoor patio for warmer months meetings, and banquet facilities. Known as one of the finest performing arts centers in eastern Canada, this is the location for annual festivals like the Hector Festival in mid August, the Lobster Festival, as well as top name artists and performers.
Pictou is very proud of its Scottish heritage. Tour the McCulloch Museum close to area hotels with great deals on rooms, then the Hector Heritage Quay Centre to get an idea of settler life in the 1700-1800's. See a life size replica of the ship. Pay your respects at the monument commemorating the only all black battalion in WWI, stationed here in Picou and learn what they contributed to the war effort in France. Book the group for a walking tour with a period costumed guide, or a bird watching tour to spot osprey, cormorants and eagles. There are kayaking tours available on the waterfront close to affordable hotels with cheaply priced rooms - no experience necessary. Take the day ferry over to Prince Edward Island, or zip across to Munroe's Island with shady trees, soft beaches, and lots of animals and birds to spot.
Shoppers for one-of-a-kind items will love visiting the Weekend Market during the months of June through September, where nearly all items are from Nova Scotia craft persons and artists. Tour the factory and outlet store of the famous Grohmann Knives handcrafted in Pictou. Golfers know the Scots take golfing seriously, and there are two excellent nine hole courses close to top-rated, low-cost motels. Hike and bike along the trails in the area. The Jitney Trail follows the waterfront for over 3 kilometers.The Short Line Trail is over 17K and is part of the Canada Trailway system. More challenging is the Fitzpatrick Trail though the Northumberland with breathtaking views.
