I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia . If you haven't been here , it's a must for your travel "to go list".
We are an ocean province ....so if you like the water ....this is the spot to be . ...many great beaches ( although.... a little cool most of the summer unless you head for one of the many lakes ), lots of fishing and boating and whale watching...right from the Halifax harbour front.
Oh and of course the seafood....did I mention we have the best lobster found anywhere. ...we get a kick out of dining in France and finding Nova Scotia lobster on the menu.
Lots of unspoiled beauty...many trails for bilking or hiking.

There is lots of music here as well . Our Celtic Heritage comes through and has turned out some pretty good musicians...any night of the week you will hear live music from many of the downtown pubs and clubs.

Travelling furthur east ...is Cape Breton . This is a about a 3 hour drive and well worth it to see the beautiful Bras d'or Lakes ( which is really an inland sea) complete with white cliffs.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:natural beauty, friendly people, great food, great music, lovely summers and fall
  • Cons:cold wet springs and long wet winters
  • In a nutshell:A must for any one interested in natural beauty

    A nice introduction to your hometown. I like the looks of the cycle trail and the beaches.

    There are so many similarities between our countries, Anita :) Whales, puffins etc. I have never been to this part of Canada, only Ottawa, Toronto and Québec. One of my VT-friends just moved to Halifax from Ottawa, Laila "Coollikethis". Have you met her?

    Excellent travel page of your home city with stunning photographs. Historic Properties, North End and the waterfront certainly look wonderful to visit and explore. Thanks for the virtual tour. ~ho & pang

    Hi the screen to ask a question isn't coming up. Can you tell me can you see the whales from Bayswater beach?

    Anita, I would love to see the autumn leaves in Halifax one day. My wife is from Ottawa, a fellow Canadian. Regards, Larry
