Lunenburg has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site for its decades-long stand as a working port in Nova Scotia. The brightly-colored buildings and its award-winning Bluenose schooner, which won numerous international racing competitions before sinking in 1921, are the best attractions.

Sherbrooke Village contains roughly 25 buildings harkening back to Nova Scotia living at the turn of the 20th century. While you can step inside and have a peek back in time in many of the buildings, a few of them are off limits. Come around Christmas for a beautiful display.
