There are many other historic properties along the tour including the site of the Halifax Explosion and Pier 21.

After a short lunch, the tour is off to Peggy’s Cove which has been a top tourist attraction in Nova Scotia of over 100 years. Located on the rugged Atlantic coastline, Peggy’s Cove stands on a base of solid rock high above the crashing surf, that previous visitors have become well aware of. There are many signs posted that tell of the danger of getting too close to the edge of the rocks near the lighthouse, where many have perished over the years.

Where there is danger there is beauty. Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse is the most photographed lighthouse in Canada and quite possible the world.  Transportation is comfortable as you can choose from a variety of vehicles to travel on from 4 Passenger Sedans to an 8 Passenger Stretch Limos.
