Located an hour South of Halifax, Nova Scotia is a UNESCO heritage site called Lunenburg. The buildings feature some vibrant and beautiful colours as well as the famous Lunenburg bump which is a well-preserved feature from a time so long ago or back in the 1800’s. The noisy neighbor bump syndrome is still visible in the settlement brought fourth by the British in their attempt to displace the Acadians or Mi’kmaqs. Lunenburg Nova Scotia is home to many sights and sounds all year round and here are some of my favourite locations to visit along the Southern Shores of Nova Scotia.
7 AWESOME THINGS TO DO IN LUNENBURG NOVA SCOTIA
There are lots of small boutiques in Lunenburg. One of my favorites is the Bluenose II Company store! They even give you coins with the Bluenose on it in exchange 😉 The Bluenose II Company store sells a great assortment of items. This being said, there are lots of small shops all around Lunenburg to checkout as the waterfront area is littered with them everywhere!
There are a couple different walking tour options as well as horse drawn carriage rides that you can hop on. These will take you around Lunenburg and feature the history of this beautiful Nova Scotia village. The ghost tour at 830PM was my personal favourite as you learned about the historical contents of Lunenburg and a bit of the paranormal as well!
The Lunenburg Nova Scotia Waterfront! The Waterfront is top notch with many ships roaming around. It’s always very relaxing to just roam around and capture some images or views of the awesome location. With many boats such as the Bluenose II around, you can spend an hour or two here easily without even noticing.
THE FISHERIES MUSEUM
A provincial owned and operated museum, you can roam through these halls to checkout the history of fishing in Nova Scotia. After you are done you can always enjoy some grub in the same building.
