Shelburne — 21 nights

Shelburne is a town located in southwestern Nova Scotia, Canada.HistoryEarly European settlers had small subsistence farms, but most of the inhabitants' income from that time to the present have been derived from the sea. Step out of the city life by going to Roseway Beach and Crescent Beach. Visit Black Loyalist Heritage Centre and Sandy Point Lighthouse for their historical value. Venture out of the city with trips to Liverpool (Main & Mersey Home Store, Peter Lavender Fishing Guide Services, &more). The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at Shelburne's Museums By The Sea, get engrossed in the history at Dory Shop Museum, stroll around The Islands Provincial Park, and don't miss a visit to Focus Gallery.
