Caledonia is a small and quaint town in Nova Scotia, located just a short drive out of the Kejimkujik National Park (the most popular attraction in the area). In the national park, there are an abundance of short hiking trails, camping, canoeing, kayaking, birdwatching, and fishing in the summer months. You can learn about Mi'kmaw culture in the information center and they also have tours in the summer months around the petroglyphs in the local area from the Mi'kmaw people that tell the story of their lived during the times before white settlement. During the winter months, the hostel may be full since the area is popular for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and other winter activities.
In the town of Caledonia itself, you can visit the Natural Resource Center, Heritage House, a fish hatchery, and public pool. There are also seasonal county fairs, music at the band stand, and tractor and ox pulls. For your amenities within the area, you can visit Noah's Place, which has all of the essentials as well as gas, food, and a payphone. Seasonally, there are also restaurants and cafes, which are owned and operated by some of the super-friendly locals.
