Travel to Lunenburg, Nova Scotia and discover a mighty Maritime spirit!
Charming Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995. This designation protects the town's rare architecture and civic design, which is one of the best example of a planned British colonial settlement in Canada. The renowned racing schooner, The Bluenose (and it's successors) was built in the Lunenburg ship building docks.
Together with it's equally charming neighbour, Mahone's Bay, Lunenburg is a beautiful day trip from Halifax or the perfect place for a weekend escape. We try to visit Lunenburg every time we visit Nova Scotia and, as you can tell, indulge in many opportunities to practice our photography skills!
