    Great visit to a small town on the harbor
    First time visit to Lunenburg while on a Tauck tour. I am not sure which company did the walking tour but we started at theLunenburg Academy and her name was Allison. During our one hour walk down to the wharf we learned about the history of Lunenburg and the houses. It's the kind of town we would go back to if in the area again. We had lunch near the docks and walked the wharf after the tour. Well kept up area and very clean. Kudos to the residents who made our visit enjoyable.

    History at It's Best
    Beautiful snap shot of days gone by. Great little town with quite the foody business going on and lots for history buffs to soak. Harbour gets quite busy by mid day with tourists and local fishing businesses and recreational boating.

    A Must-Visit Picturesque Heritage Town
    The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Lunenburg is stunning! We did an 1 hour walking tour with local guide, Alison. She pointed out several houses of historic significance to us. Lunenburg is a 8 by 6 blocks town which is very walkable. The Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic is located beside the harbour. There are several restaurants serving very good lobsters, scallops, clams etc along the waterfront.

Another must see when family visits Nova Scotia. UNESCO considers the site the best example of planned British colonial settlement in North America, as it retains its original layout and appearance of the 1800s.

Fairly compact area located along the waterfront boasting brightly painted, colorful buildings, traditional 100+ year-old homes, several steep inclined streets and lots of restaurants and craft shops. Parking can be a challenge (even on a rainy Monday afternoon). Be sure to head down to the waterfront area for a look around at some of the beautiful boats.

The historic district is very beautiful and a pleasant walk up and down the streets and along the waterfront. It would be nice to see some more public information posted about the history of the buildings.

We walked around Lunenburg and also took a horse and carriage tour that was fantastic! What a gem this town is! The architecture is amazing and you are transported back to the 1700s as you are seeing it just as it was. Give yourself time to see the buildings, check out the museums and visit the art galleries. It is all well worth the time and visit.
