Halifax, Nova Scotia
Blessed with sandy beaches, rugged shorelines and colorful gardens, this fine location was the site of the first British town in Canada. Founded in 1749, the area has evolved to be home for a diverse mix of people. Charming fishing villages, farming communities and Atlantic Canada's largest city awaits you.
In the heart of the downtown you'll find art galleries, museums, historic sites and churches, shopping, sidewalk cafés and friendly nightclubs. Lively pubs and livelier entertainment and a nightlife that doesn't quit, spectacular shows, first class sporting events, riveting live theatre on both sides of the harbour, scrumptious dining and non-stop fun are the ticket to an exhiliarating Halifax experience.
If you seek peaceful nature scenes, head out of the downtown for nearby communities offering hiking, camping, and bird watching. Let yourself be romanced by the sea. Everyone is drawn to the ocean - the crisp tang of salt air, fresh breezes, and an ever-changing panorama of colour and light. Everyone should experience the pleasure of a broad sandy beach, the awesome power of waves crashing against a rocky shore, or the simple pleasure of beachcombing for unexpected treasures from the sea. Stroll our boardwalks and see ships from around the world, watch fishermen at their timeless tasks or sail or kayak among the many islands of our beautiful bays
Throughout the year you can enjoy music festivals, live theatre, outdoor concerts, symphony performances and good old fashioned Celtic ceilidhs.
