The town of Mahone Bay has been named one of Canada's best small town downtowns and pretty as a picture. It features many art and music festivals during the year as well as many small inns and restaurants. This area along with Peggy's Cove and Lunenburg are part of the Bluenose Coast area stretching 200 miles along Nova Scotia's South Shore.

Mahone Bay has some 365 islands and is a prime boating and sailing area noted for its pristine waters. The welcome sign says"We love the beauty around us and welcome you to share it". Many German speaking immigrants settled her in 1754 due to British colonizing efforts of European settlers. Prior to this it was inhabited by the Mi'kmaq natives. It became an area steeped in agriculture,forestry,ship building,shipping and fishing. townofmahonebay.ca
