Arcadia is a small community in Nova Scotia. It was originally known as "Upper Chebogue" but the change to Arcadia was made in 1863. While the word itself may be traced back to the native name for a land of peace and contentment, the place name was suggested by the ship "Arcadia" that was built and launched there in 1817. Places to eat in the region include Windlass Restaurant, Rainbow Delights Restaurant, Quiznos Sub, and South Ohio Seafood & Grill.

Things to see and do
Yarmouth County Museum
Located at 22 Collins Street. Award-winning museum and archives, plus historic Pelton-Fuller House. The third largest ship portrait collection in Canada. One of the largest costume collection in Nova Scotia. The largest non-institutional archives in Nova Scotia
Firefighters' Museum of Nova Scotia
Located at 451 Main Street. Imagine the clang of the fire bell, the smell of smoke and the feel of hot steam as firefighters race to save close-built houses: the world of the firefighter in a province made of wood. You don't have to be a firefighter to appreciate the Firefighters' Museum of Nova Scotia in Yarmouth. Antique auto enthusiasts especially enjoy the important collection of vintage equipment: the pumpers, hose wagons, and ladder trucks--not to mention the 1863 Amoskeag Steamer, one of the oldest surviving steamers in Canada. Even though these fire trucks had long service careers before being retired, they're all in excellent condition. It only stands to reason. Firefighters routinely risk their lives. As a consequence, they take great pains to ensure the equipment they depend on is in good running order.
