Ports

Lunenburg is a Canadian port town in Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia. Historically the town was involved in several wars, including the American Revolution. Today the town is a fishery port and has several small shipyards that have managed to preserve the skills of the sailing era. Did you know that the replica of the ‘Bounty’ was built here? Visit the historic city centre on foot or by horse and carriage, and enjoy a leisurely hike in the grassy hills of the surrounding countryside.

New York is the most popular city in the United States and exerts a significant impact upon fashion, art, research, technology, entertainment and so much more. Here you can go to a musical, take a walk in Central Park, visit Metropolitan Museum of Art, and see the view from the Empire State Building. This is a destination you need to visit more then once!
