LODGING              DINING              WHAT TO DO              HISTORY & HERITAGE              SHOPPING  



There is much to see and do in and around Shelburne. Near the Historic Waterfront District (see map here), you will find art galleries and antique stores, gift shops and book stores, performing arts centre and a yacht club and public marina. Yachting and canoeing are available and the golf course is excellent. Our beaches are sublime and we can boast some of the best birding spots in the Maritimes.

The local arts council produces both a film series and performance series, each lasting from fall through spring. Yearly event highlights include:

Harbour Tours: Daily at 9am and 2pm. June 1 through Sept 1 


Take a virtual through our many activities and attractions and we think you'll see that Shelburne is a place to put on your "must see" vacation list. See ya!
