Lunenburg--the Gatlinburg of Nova Scotia
Lunenburg COULD be charming and beautiful, but as a native of the town told us: "You really need to get away from the tourist areas to appreciate Lunenburg." The waterfront area is full of touristy restaurants and gift shops selling maritime bric-a-brac made in China. There are some very nice old houses several blocks away from the waterfront that are worth a quick visit, but you can skip the rest of Lunenburg and just hit the gift shops at the Halifax airport if you want a cheesy gift to take back to the relatives.
Unique Suggestions: Stay away from the waterfront. Especially, if the Bluenose II is not in port, there is little worth your time there.
Fun Alternatives: See Peggy's Cove and Mahone Bay and move on through Lunenburg.
