for the vitality of its flourishing arts community, its colourful maritime
industry, and abundant natural beauty, Lunenburg has become a beacon
for visitors to Nova Scotia. In 1995 Lunenburg was named a UNESCO
World Heritage Site - one of only two settled sites in North America
to hold this distinction. The writer Margaret Atwood has written about
the delights of Lunenburg and the South Shore in the New
York Times, "sophisticated traveller" (use search terms
'Lunenburg Nova Scotia past year').
With its varied attractions, Lunenburg offers plenty of "after-school
activities" not the least of which are three major festivals during
the month of August! Interesting side trips to quaint towns and pristine
beaches are a short distance away. And after the course is over, visitors
will find it hard to choose from an itinerary of wonderful sights throughout
the magical province of Nova Scotia.
