Amherst (Nova Scotia)
Amherst is just off the Trans-Canada Highway 104, a few kilometers south of the provincial border with New Brunswick. The city is accessed through the following highway exits: LaPlanche St (if coming from the west), Victoria St or Albion St. You can also enter Amherst from the Sunrise Trail (Route 6) to the east, which links to Victoria Street.
The main streets in Amherst are Albion St, Church St and Victoria St. Church St intersects with Victoria St and Albion St, and both Victoria and Albion St intersect with Highway 104, so you can usually find your way around if you know these three streets. Albion St, where most of the restaurants and shops are, represents up-town. Church St and Victoria St (downtown) have most of the artisan shops, diners and history.
