Unwind and unplug in unspoiled Kingsburg

This remote little village on the Kingsburg Peninsula is a true escape from it all. Formerly a fishing and farming community, Kingsburg has grown as a popular seaside destination, but much of the surrounding area maintains an untouched beauty and allure. Whether you spend your days on the beach, in town, or exploring by bike or horseback, Kingsburg is the perfect place to unwind and unplug. The local, tight-knit community is extremely warm to visitors, and with the perfect Kingsburg vacation rental, you're likely to feel immediately at home.

Smalltown culture with big, beautiful views

To have the true Kingsburg experience, you have to fully embrace the smalltown culture. Join the community for their regular pub nights, or line up your trip with one of the annual craft or folk art festivals. Boat tours are available for travelers eager to go whale and dolphin watching, while landlubbers can enjoy hiking through any of the stunning parks, perfect for bird-watching, camping, and stargazing. A regular farmers market is a must-do for anyone eager to make use of their Kingsburg vacation rental kitchen, or just to plan a picnic on one of the local beaches.

You better prep your roadtrip playlist now

The main attraction in Kingsburg is its coastline, but the local parks are also a must. About 20 minutes north of Kingsburg is the town of Lunenburg, whose old town is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Here, you'll find plenty of restaurants and wineries, as well as tons of shopping. Lunenburg also features an opera house, and there are a variety of museums throughout Nova Scotia, celebrating the region's history, natural history, and arts and culture. A roadtrip around the peninsula is practically required, so be sure to consider a car along with your Kingsburg vacation rental.

Cold and crisp in winter, and... slightly warmer in summer

Locals describe the weather as moderate, but travelers coming up from the south might disagree. Though the temperatures don't change dramatically through the 4 seasons, winters are cold and crisp, while summers top out at around 75 degrees. It's best to always pack a few layers, as weather can also change dramatically around Nova Scotia. Spring brings a burst of wildflowers, while autumn is the ideal time to visit for leaf peeping. It's always cooler by the ocean, so keep this in mind as you plan your days.

Stunning views, along the coastlines and in the skies

Kingsburg is a classic Nova Scotian coastal community, once dependent on its beautiful sandy beaches to provide for the local fishing community. Today, these same beaches offer stunning views of whales and dolphins passing by, or are places to spot the seabirds flying overhead. Travelers who head into the parks may come across chipmunks, red squirrels, and snowshoe hares, who are brown in summer and white in winter. The Northern Lights can be spotted around the island from October through May, though your best bet is to drive a bit further north from Kingsburg for optimal views.
