Finding Your Way Around Town

Town - Liverpool

Liverpool is small, quaint and friendly and there are never any worries about getting lost while wandering the town in search of the numerous museums and a taste of what life was like in the early days of Liverpool and surrounding region.

  • The Hank Snow Museum is housed in the old rail station and is open year around filling the air with Hank Snow's songs and shelves lined with his life and history.
  • Sherman Hines Museum of Photography takes the visitor on a walk through the eyes of those before us.
  • Fort Point Lighthouse, circa 1855,  is surrounded by a park which is a great place for a picnic before stepping inside the lighthouse to blast the foghorn.
  • Perkins Museum is inside the original residence of our infamous Simeon Perkins, circa 1766.
  • Queens County Museum provides a look at
              - privateering exhibits
              - the Mi'Kmaq Exhibit   
              - the historical documents of the Bank of Liverpool (1871-1879)
              - and much, much more.
  • And lastly but not least isteresting is the beautiful Rossignol Cultureal Centre where you can take a few steps back in time before sitting in an elegantly adorned coffee shop for a relaxing coffee or tea.

Then escape the heat of the day with a few hours at the beach. Follow the White Point Rd westerly to Hunts Point Beach, Summerville Beach, Port Joli and/or Port Muton's seaside; all are but minutes from Liverpool's main street. If you have room in your trunk for a set of golf clubs be sure to take in a game "Pebbles Beach Style' at White Point Golf. Or set off on a drive east of Liverpool for  a day on the sand at Beach Meadows Beach.

Inland adventures are a short drive on highway #8 to the Lake Rossignol Wilderness area:
Collect a free GPS unit from the Region of Queens office and spend the day on a geocaching adventure; don't forget to check out the cache in the location across the old rail bridge.
If by chance you should lose your way  just ask our friendly residents the way and they will eagerly point you in the right direction.


Live Liverpool and escape from the usual.
