One of the most popular travel destinations in Canada is just 30 minutes away. Lunenburg offers everything you would expect in a charming seaside town in Nova Scotia. A designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, Lunenburg is the perfect day trip destination.

There are museums that preserve the ancient shipbuilding and fishing traditions of the town, unique craft shops and street artisians, a variety of first-class restaurants and retail shops, numerous pubs that promote craft beer and local cuisine and several businesses along the picturesque waterfront that provide historic harbour tours, whale watching and sailing adventures.

And of course, Lunenburg, Nova Scotia is home to the schooner, Bluenose II, the province’s Sailing Ambassador. When it’s in port, you can tour it, sail on it, and marvel at its construction. The original Bluenose, build in Lunenburg in 1919 was considered one of the fastest ships on the sea, winning race after race until it finally succumbed to a reef off the coast of Haiti. No trace of the famous schooner was ever found.
