For the last few years, we at Tusket Ford have associated ourselves with a great organization, the Yarmouth and Acadian Shores Tourism Association. From now into September, you will find the Tusket Ford/YAS EcoSport at events throughout the area. We very much believe in the work that Yarmouth and Acadian Shores does for this region. They spread the good word about everything that our beautiful area has to offer; from experiences and adventures to be had, food and drink to be sampled and amazing scenery to be taken in. We truly live in one of the most glorious places in the world.

Never Say There’s Nothing to Do

This is an area rich in Culture and History. From taking in Acadian culture at Le Village Historique Acadien in Lower West Pubnico, to Walking Tours through Yarmouth’s Heritage District. Guided tours through Mountain Cemetery. Living Wharves Demonstrations and the many museums in the area. There is much you can immerse yourself in.

If It’s outdoor experiences you’re into, there are Kayak adventures and Stand-Up Paddle boarding. There’s Kite Surfing, countless nature trails and miles of lakes and beaches. Star gazers should know that Yarmouth & Acadian Shores is home to North America’s first “Starlight Destination” designated by The International Starlight Foundation. We are only one of four places in the world to have this designation. Not far from Tusket Ford in Quinan we have the Deep Sky Eye Observatory, the perfect place to spend a starry starry night.
