The site also has trails with beautiful views of the harbour and neighbouring islands, farm animals and picnic areas, as well as a café and gift shop.

The Historic Acadian Village of Nova Scotia is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. Since opening its doors to the public the Historical Village has grown with the addition of a blacksmith shop, where you can bring home a souvenir made right in front of you, mail a postcard in the Village Post Office, and visit a replica root cellar where jarred goods, meats, dried fish and root vegetables would be stored to last over the winter months. During your visit of this historic and cultural live museum, you may even have the opportunity to taste Acadian Rappie pie or savour a delicious molasses cookie. There is even more to see and do while visiting the historic village, enjoy a picnic lunch along the trail surrounding the Historic Village made from the Café du Crique menu situated at the Entrance building.
