Liverpool, Nova Scotia, Nova Scotia
Liverpool is located along the province of Nova Scotia's south shore, and has a mild humid continental climate despite it's seaside location. Liverpool has wonderful attractions including museums and lighthouses, a theatre, a market, art galleries and outfitters. Liverpool's harbour was an ancient seasonal camp of Nova Scotia's native Mi'kmaq, and was founded as a fishing port in 1759, and primarily occupies the west bank of the mouth of the Mersey River, named after Liverpool in England which also lies on it's own Mersey River. Commercial and recreational fishing still play an important role in the economy and tourism has become increasingly important of late.
