Step Back in Time at Kings Landing Historical Settlement
"The entire historical experience at Kings Landing is genuine. In addition to updated and repaired buildings, the original settlement buildings are exactly as the original settlers built and lived in. Local people both volunteer and are in the employ at Kings Landing, all dressing in original clothing styles suitable to the time period...And for the traveller who wants accommodation, a mere 15-minute drive will take you to hotels, motels and even better, to Mactaquac Provincial Park where you can pitch your tent and swim in the river!" -- Member Jane
