Best Staycation Spot

Gold Winner Lunenburg

Silver Winner White Point Beach Resort

Bronze Winner Halifax waterfront

It takes an entire town to dethrone White Point and its bunnies. The quaint and colourful Lunenburg scores gold with authority this year, drawing in tourists and locals in droves to its historic harbourfront, kick-ass restaurants and adorable shops. Dots and Loops, The Laughing Whale, Lincoln Street, Fleur de Sel, the Folk Harbour Festival, Ironworks Distillery, The Knot—THE BLUENOSE—and nearby must-sees like Blue Rocks and The Ovens are just a few of the reasons this south shore spot rules. But also, it’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site so bow down, staycationers.
