Area Attractions

Where to begin?...
Nova Scotia's South Shore and Lunenburg in particular have much to offer visitors. Whether you're coming from an hour away or a world away there are so many things to see and experience that you will soon be wondering where the time went and wishing you could stay longer. Many current residents of the area will attest to this fact as many of them have visited, fell in love, and decided to call Lunenburg "home".

Opposite is just a small sampling of the "things to do" attractions in our immediate area and below are other websites which provide additional information resources. Of course, a stroll through Old Town Lunenburg is itself an experience not to be missed!
