At this point in the year, a hot sunny day in Nova Scotia is still a true novelty.  As soon as the temperature gets above 15 and the sun is out, people are on the patio, enjoying drinks, and spending as much time tanning as possible.  You’ve probably experienced that late spring sunburn that comes from thinking you don’t need sunscreen yet.  If you’re a true optimist you may have even broken out those cargo shorts once or twice in 2017.

As the first of June quickly approaches, we look forward to having three solid months of summery weather that’s only going to keep getting better and better.  Scroll through the list below and pick a bunch of hikes, bike routes, boat tours and beaches that you and your friends need to hit at some point this summer.

After enjoying some remarkable success throughout the early 2000's, Akon seemed to disappear from the music scene after the release of his most recent studio album Freedom in 2008.  It turns out the "Smack That" singer has been devoting much of his time to philanthropic projects over the past decade, culminating in the creation of his Konfidence Foundation which aims "to improve the quality of life for people in Africa and the United States."

Luckily for us, Akon has begun his return to the music scene and will be embarking on a summer tour to raise hype for the highly anticipated release of his fourth studio album Stadium.  On June 28th Akon will be stopping through Halifax and playing a show at Pacifico for only $55 per ticket.  Jam out to retro tunes like "Don't Matter" and "I Wanna Love You" with Akon this summer, and transport yourself back to the simpler times that were 2005.  For more ticket information click here.
