Finding a Home in Dartmouth, NS

The so-called City of Lakes (24, to be exact), Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, with its ready access to beaches, parks, shopping, and a growing selection of hip watering holes and eateries, has become an even more desirable destination than ever for retirees who’d like to enjoy the best aspects of both a major centre and a smaller city. 

You can discover much more about Dartmouth by reading the latest instalment of Good Times magazine’s Finding a Home In… column.

I’m mortified to say that in the piece, realtor Kim Stewart is incorrectly identified as Kelly — which is my error. My apologies to Kim, who was incredibly helpful in evoking a mental picture of life in this often-overlooked community.

Please note, due to mix-up at the magazine, the byline on the piece is also incorrect. The piece has been mistakenly credited to Lola Augustine Brown, who writes travel and beauty pieces for Good Times. It’s flattering to be mixed up with her — she’s a terrific writer, and you can find many of her articles on the Good Times site.

A big thank-you to Discover Dartmouth, Tourism Nova Scotia, realtor Kim Stewart, and Chris MacFarlane of Cscape Visuals.
