Halifax has a long history and tons of activities for visitors year-round. The "City of Trees" is a busy port city with several harbors, and the central shipping and fishing docks even share a boardwalk, wharf, shipyard, and marinas. When you visit Nova Scotia's capital city, make sure to take a stroll along the promenade or hop on a ferry for a quick cruise around the Halifax Harbor. If you're looking for a break from the outdoors, be sure to discover the city's history and unique food culture.
The 2.5-mile boardwalk is lined with dozens of small shops, eateries, activities, and history. One stop, Pier 21 is home to the Canadian Museum of Immigration and the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. For a unique treat, head to the wharves behind the Maritime Museum and go aboard the CSS Arcadia and explore the more than 100-year old ship's bridge, chart room, and the officers quarters. Before leaving, have a seat at one of several seafood restaurants and enjoy the day's fresh catch while gazing out at the open waters.
