Known for its history of boat building and the hundreds of islands in the bay, the city of Mahone Bay sits on the picturesque northwest shore of Mahone Bay. It is on the south shore of Nova Scotia, quite close to Lunenburg, on the "Lighthouse Route". Its name came from the French term "mahonne" (aka barge) referring to the low, long pirate boats that frequented the area. Halifax and pirates go hand-in-hand, not only as a landing place for the marauders supposedly burying treasure but for the fact that in 1809 they had 2 trials for piracy, murder and general mayhem created on its waters. Initially cloaked in cute cottages, the architecture became grander in style as the town progressed. Many of the houses display Gothic Revival peaked gables, ornate moldings and trims, Italianate curved windows and a Victorian Eclectic dash of style.
You can wallow in its early history at the Mahone Bay Museum if that turns you on, or recant your sins at any one of the three prominent historical churches; the Trinity United, St James' Anglican or John's Evangelical Lutheran. Take a stroll around the shops or squander some time in one of the many restaurants or cafes. The small harbor area is great to traipse around to check out the moored boats and yachts especially on a sunny day. The pretty bay is the perfect relaxing eye candy if you drop into one of the pubs overlooking the water. Explore the nearby Peggy's Cove or wander up the Main Street drooling over some luscious handcrafted chocolates.
