    One of the prettiest towns in Nova Scotia is less than a two hour drive away in Annapolis Royal. It is one of my favorite places in Nova Scotia. The drive over coming from Lunenberg and going south is a scenic one and just skirts one of Nova Scotia's national parks. Like Lunenberg, it is compact and easy to walk around in. There are some great Victorian homes, a fort, a nice riverfront, and the world's largest tidal generating station.

    Keimkujik National Park

    Keijimkujik National Park

    Just an hour or half from Lunenberg lies a really pretty national park that few non Nova Scotians take the time to visit. Keimkujik National Park is located in the southern interior of Nova Scotia. The park contains some lush forests, great hiking trails, creeks and rivers for canoeing and wildlife to view. There is a recently reconstructed visitor center as well.

    When we were there was during a period of off and on again rain which limited our ability to fully access all of the facilities of the park. Trail lengths run from 0.2 km for the Mersey Meadow trail around the river wetland area to 8.7 km for the Port Joli to the sea trail.

    At the time we went to the park due to the rain they did not charge us an admission fee. Checking in July, 2013 at the national park web site a specific day fee is not identified.

    From Lunenberg drive out to Highway 103. Drive south on Highway 103 and take Exit 13 (Bridgewater). The park is 66 km further; signs will indicate direction and distance to Kejimkujik. Turn right onto Highway 325 and turn left when the road joins Highway 208. Continue on the 208 until the road joins Route 8. Turn right onto Route 8, proceeding through Caledonia. Kejimkujik is 18 km from Caledonia.

    When in or near Lunenburg do be sure to get a few miles out of town to a place called Blue Rocks. It's a very picturesque and beautiful area, photographers dream come true.
    One can easily see many artists and their eisles purched high above the rocks on a consistent basis. Also take route #332 through places of scenic beauty from Lunenburg such as Bayport, Rose Bay, The Ovens Natural Park, Hirtles Beach, Riverport and cross the short ferry ( LaHave River Cable Ferry) at East LaHave and route #331.
    Beaches and coastal beauty alonf this route. Crescent Beach Risser's Beach and Green Bay and a bit further is Broad Cove Beach, Cherry Hill Beach and Voglers Cove.

    Add Mahone Bay to your itinerary

    On your way in or out of Lunenburg, I highly recommend making a short detour through the lovely town of Mahone Bay. We hadn't heard about this place so we only drove through it but had we known beforehand, we probably would have taken the time to visit a bit for it is such a charming town! It is smaller than Lunenburg, but has the same type of architecture and landscape. I'll make sure to go if I make it back to Nova Scotia!

    It will be best to combine your trip to Lunenburg with a visit to the lovely towns of Mahone Bay and Peggy's cove. More information on these two places are at my VT pages on Mahone Bay and Peggy's Cove.
