Halifax

 
Lush landscapes, Seaside Respite
Halifax, Nova Scotia
Fresh Atlantic Ocean air, a welcoming community of locals and iconic Canadian adventures await in Halifax. Watch the whales from the shore and head home with a fiddler’s song in your heart.

Clear your head on a stroll through a city with a story to tell

Breathe fresh Atlantic air. Walk the historical city core. Visit Pier 21. Check the archives for ancestors who passed through. Climb the steps of the citadel for the worthwhile view of the city’s harbor. Get goosebumps at the Titanic exhibit in the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic

Immerse yourself in the bounty that is Nova Scotia food

Order the Sean Penn special at Fiasco or the traditional fish and chips at the Red Stag tavern. For dessert head to Sugah where you call the shots on fillings and flavors for the hand-paddled ice cream. Still hungry? Hit the farmer’s market for freshly baked goods and artisanal jams.

The coast is clear for visitors looking for a day trip with a view

Opt for a harbor front sail on the famous Bluenose II – the schooner that graces the back of the Canadian dime – or board another tall ship for a day of adventure . When it’s over hit Spirit Spa for a mud treatment and Vichy shower. Feel renewed.

Slow down and take it all in – one experience

Rent a bicycle and tour a provincial park. Rent a car and head for Cape Breton. Stop on the way to watch whales in the Ocean. Learn to fiddle in a neighborhood bar. Spend a day admiring the intricate crystal work that is considered among the best in the world.
