Truro is known as the “Hub of Nova Scotia”

Truro is a town in central Nova Scotia, Canada.

Truro is known as the “Hub of Nova Scotia”, because of its geographical position and historical significance. And today, with all major highways intersecting through Truro, the town truly is the Hub of Nova Scotia.

On the edge of town visitors flock to the Salmon River to view the tidal bore that occurs twice a day as a result of the immense incoming Fundy tide. Nearby on the Shubenacadie River, adventurers can also enjoy the one-of-a-kind thrill of tidal bore river rafting.
