If you want to book your vacation in a truly special place, look no further than the South Shore. It's a place where visitors turn into locals in the blink of an eye. And it isn't just in the summer months, the South Shore offers picture perfect landscapes, exotic foods and local wines, exciting adventures and some of the friendliest folks you'll ever meet – year round!

We had so many folks tell us that they came for a visit but and ended up staying that we decided to capture some of their stories on video to remind us of the things that make the South Shore such a special place. These are people from the UK, Germany, Argentina, Ireland and Chile who wanted to create a new life in a place that felt a little like home – only better! With a smaller population, the continued influences of a traditional way of life, untouched nature, available housing and business opportunities, the South Shore really is the ideal place to start something new.
