The town is known for a history of wooden boat building, the main industry in its earlier years.
The view across the harbour is of the three prominent churches: St James' Anglican; St. John's Evangelical Lutheran; and Trinity United, which has become an iconic image of Nova Scotia. Mahone Bay has a number of upscale shops and restaurants which are designed to appeal to the tourist industry.
