Drive the Scenic Lighthouse Route in Nova Scotia Reviews

This drive is so beautiful that you have to pinch yourself every so often to make sure that it’s real. It’s like driving through a postcard and beautiful views everywhere you go. Lunenburg, is especially the best part of the trip. So charming, so peaceful, and the houses that are preserved there are pretty amazing. Definitely a place to visit.
