Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia

Mahone Bay was settled in 1754, with its bay of 365 islands was a common refuge for pirates and privateers. Now, it is home to the Wooden Boat Festival where schooner races, boat-building demonstrations, an old-time oxen boat launch liven the waterfront each summer.

Among the heritage properties, you will find B&Bs, restaurants, quality crafts and antique stores. Linger and enjoy pewter, pottery, folk art, hooked rugs, designer clothing, fine art then top it off with a coffee and pastry from one of the many fine bakeries.

Mahone Bay is a popular weekend jaunt for nearby Haligonians, the name for residents of Halifax, all year round.

A favourite, is October's Great Scarecrow Festival when the town comes alive with Scarecrows of every shape and description, children's entertainment, antique fair and for the ghoulish at heart a night time graveyard tour!
