Situated on Nova Scotia's South Shore, LUNENBURG is located on a peninsula at the western side of Mahone Bay and approximately 90 km southwest of the city of Halifax. The historic town was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995. This designation ensures protection for much of Lunenburg's unique architecture.
Lunenburg has a long history of building wooden ships, the most famous being the schooner Bluenose. Her sister ship Bluenose II is a huge tourist attraction and Lunenburg is her home port.
Tourism is Lunenburg's most important industry and thousands visit the town every year. A number of restaurants, Inns, Hotels and shops service this tourist trade. The town is home to the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic. Other tourist attractions include Lunenburg Academy, Whale Watching Tours, Knaut -Rhuland House Museum and St. John's Anglican Church.
Hans and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Lunenburg.

    A lovely page Lori! The town is so bright and colourful, and as for the Church, I would love to see it for myself!

      It is a lovely town to visit - so much colour and so photogenic. Hansi got to have his lobster twice during this trip. I don't care for it myself and would rather have a nice fish and chips dinner.

      No, we didn't go out on a lobster boat. Saw lots of them, but it was not lobster season, when we were there. Most lobster we saw, were in tanks.
