The Region of Queens takes the well being of its citizens seriously, and what better way to stay in shape than enjoying the great outdoors.

Queens County spans from forest and farm to lake and ocean. Our pristine white beaches are easily accessible and all just a short drive away.

We have several trails, one right in Liverpool where you can walk or jog among the towering pines of Pine Grove Park then loop back into town along the Trestle Trail.

There are so many outdoor activities from boating and fishing to horseback riding, there really is no limit to what our landscape has to offer.

Housing and Cost of Living

In Liverpool you will find some of the most reasonably priced houses around. Like ocean frontage? We've got it. How about an affordable retirement home? No problem. Chances are there`s a house that will match your price, wants and needs.

The cost to heat your house via oil is lower than ever, and with our mild winters you save a pretty penny.

Power can be expensive, however home owners with electric heat can save money by opting for electric thermal storage. NS Power will install a "time of use meter" which will give electric rates of 50% off from 11pm to 7am on weekdays and all day on weekends and holidays.

Groceries cost the same but you can always buy cheaper, locally grown food at one of our farmers markets.

The local people refer to the South Shore of Nova Scotia as The Banana Belt. This is because we have the mildest winters in Canada, with the exception of BC, where it rains all the time and real estate prices are through the roof. If you like warm summers and fresh ocean air, this place is for you.
