Just an hour outside of Halifax lies Lunenburg: an historical port town that was designated as one of Canada’s eighteen UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1995. This designation is granted to a select few sites around the world, all of which must be of outstanding cultural or historical value.
It is thought that Lunenburg’s unique style of architecture and urban design represent the best example of a planned British settlement within Canada – these characteristics, combined with the town’s incredible ocean view and overall charm are what make it such a bustling tourist attraction for travellers from all over the world.
Take a scenic drive out to Lunenburg this fall and visit the Fisheries Museum Of The Atlantic, or book a tour of the Bluenose II – a replica of the famous schooner which is featured on our Canadian dime. Hike the nearby Lighthouse Trail, rent kayaks and head out onto the sea, or take a casual walking tour through this charming historic town.
