Lunenburg

An hour's drive from Halifax's international airport, Luneburg boasts both colorful buildings and a colorful history, as well as status as a World Heritage Site. Founded by the English in the 1750s, the harbor-side town remains one of the best-preserved colonial settlements in North America. Guided tours of Luneburg include visits to tall ships moored in the harbor and easy strolls through pleasant streets flanked by small shops and restaurants, housed inside colorfully painted colonial-era homes. One of the most popular places to visit in Luneburg is a renowned museum of Canada's fishing tradition, which displays many original vessels and contains an aquarium. Lunenburg is in Southwest Nova Scotia. To personalize your trip to Lunenburg, create itinerary details specific to you using our Canada visit site .
