Mahone Bay is an enchanting town that is deeply rooted in history. Its name comes from the French ' mahonne' (barge), a tribute to the low boats of the pirates that used to visit the area. Incorporated as a town in 1919, it is now home to a population of just 1000. The residents are mostly made of a quiet community of retirees.
Like Mahone Bay, Lunenburg, NS is a town known for its historic charm. In fact, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) classified it as a historic site in 1995. Its beautiful architecture and civic design make it a perfect specimen of planned British colonial settlement in the country.
