Lunenburg // Nova Scotia, Canada

December 18, 2017

Happy Monday friends! Today I am so excited to continue to share more about my recent trip through New EnglandNew BrunswickPrince Edward Island, and Nova ScotiaAs I mentioned last week, I was absolutely enchanted by Peggy's Cove and Peggy's Cove Lighthouse! It was just a truly beautiful place and as we pulled away I was sad to leave such a gorgeous part of the world, but excited to see more of Nova Scotia. 
As you can see from the map above, the next place that we drove to was Lunenburg, which is about an hour drive south of Peggy's Cove. 
Lunenburg was established approximately four years after Halifax was established. What is interesting about Lunenburg is that this was one of the first British attempts to settle Protestants in Nova Scotia and was the site of many raids in the first years of its establishment. 

Lunenburg was designated a UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization) World Heritage Site in 1995 which ensures the unique architecture and design of Lunenburg.
Lunenburg is considered to be the best example of planned British colonial settlement in Canada.
Due to the time of day and the amount of driving we still had to do, our visit was very brief. We enjoyed driving through the town, stopping to walk through some stores, and walk the main street and visit some of the historical sites. It was a brief, but it was a wonderful visit and I would definitely recommend it!
