"Canada's Ocean Playground" Halifax by Jefie

Halifax Travel Guide: 996 reviews and 1,932 photos

In 2006, our third annual family camping trip took us to Halifax, the capital of beautiful Nova Scotia. As the first British city in Canada and second largest natural harbour in the world, Halifax invites visitors to discover both its rich history and vibrant Maritimes culture. I know for a fact that my sister Pascale, my nephew Kevin, my niece Alex and myself had an awesome time touring around the city, visiting some of its museums, hanging out by the water and just soaking in the warm Nova Scotian atmosphere. So I hope you enjoy touring around Halifax by looking up my tips, as you'll see, it truly is Canada's ocean playground!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Something for the young and old and everyone in between
  • Cons:It was a heck of a long car ride!
  • In a nutshell:Pubs EVERYWHERE!!

    Hi Isa, Nice page, would like to visit this section of Canada in your fall season. Either hire a car for 3 weeks and drive up from Boston or visa versa.

    Interesting to see that you put "Stores closed on Sundays" in as a tip - in Germany all stores are closed on Sundays and it's nothing special at all... ;)

    It's been so long since I've been to Halifax, that I've linked my page on Nova Scotia (which is blank) to your's. You've got great information. Hope you don't mind.
