Georges Island Lighthouse was right outside our cruise cabin when were we docked at Pavillion 22 in Halifax. We had a front row view.

As far as I know, you can't actually go to George's Island Lighthouse, but you can however view it from the waterfront. It's a cute little light house tucked into the grassy hill with a cute abandoned cottage near by.
