Hi

I would recommend Grayline tours . They have several different tours to choose from . Peggy's Cove is beautiful with unusal rock formations but its an hour from Halifax. There are whale watching trips you can take right from the Halifax waterfront .So its something to keep in mind when planning your day. Here's the link to Grayline .

Have fun!

The first must-see attraction will be right in front of you, the waterfront and harbourwalk which is the name given to the boardwalk which extends about 3 km from the cruisehip terminal in the south to Casino Nova Scotia in the north. You will find 2 museums, Pier 21, the immigration museum and the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. If you just want to pay for one of those I, personally, would choose the Maritime Museum which can easily take an hour of your time .Especially interesting are the Titanic and Halifax Explosion exhibits. Also, along the harbourwalk are many shops,restaurants, pubs and of course a variety of ships. if you want great seafood at a good price try the Captain's Catch kiosk across from the Maritime Museum. There are ferry taxis which take you to Peggy's Cove or whale watching from here. If you are interested in history and forts you might want to ascend the hill to the Citadel. The Public Gardens is a more tranquil spot if you are into Victorian gardens. This website might give you some more ideas. http://visitors.halifax.ca/historic-halifax.shtml

Travel Tips for Halifax

Good way to spend a day or so

by jquillm1

Most of the best attractions are within walking distance of each other. The Maritime Museum, the Citadel, Historic Properties and the restaurants and shops along the waterfront can all be accessed by walking. The Maritime Museum is excellent overall, but skip the extra cost "Titanic 3-D movie--you have seen it all on TV already and 3-D glasses added nothing to a dim, small screen presentation that wasn't very interesting.

Taking it easy...

by PA2AKgirl

On a sunny day like the Saturday we had in Halifax, people were out enjoying their city in any way possible. From walking in the gardens to exercising to laying on the grass to sitting on their balconies, it seemed like these people knew how to enjoy life. It was truly a perfect day to get out and walk around--which is exactly what we did--and it made me a little jealous of those who live here. Even in terrible weather, Halifax would be a terrific city. Usually my general tips don't correlate with my fondest memories, but for once, this one does. Seeing Halifax; walking around in such a great city on a fabulous day with Bobby was one of my best memories from the trip. It was a city in a province neither of us had visited before and we both fell in love with Halifax. (Granted, there was an unfortunate incident at a Tim Hortons not too long before this picture was taken, but it's now funny...making this memory even better)

I'm just happy that we got to experience this city together--I'd have it no other way. And I can't wait until we're able to visit again:-D

Winter wonderland...

by Munkee

Even in winter there are plenty of ways to enjoy outdoor activities. Some of the beaches have hiking trails, you can cross-country ski on the Common, or take a walk or run in Point Pleasant Park. Grab a crazy-carpet and slide down Citadel Hill...a fun and cheap way to while away a winter day.

Under constructionI have just started writing this new page my Canada series. I have only scanned in one picture yet. So please come back again, and see the finished result. In the mean time please take a look at the latest page that I wrote : Charlottetown page (Canada). Or maybe you rather take a look at some of my other favourite pages (in no particular order): Monument Valley, Wyoming, The Netherlands or Italy. I hope you will enjoy reading them!

Enjoy!

Walk around and enjoy the great scenery and history of the place. The Point Pleasant Park is very nice and has alot of old ruins of forts. In the summer they run Shakespeare in the park, where they put on plays at night at the sites of the old forts. They have a strict set of rules, that I think must have been written by a lawyer. It is almost comical. We will remember the trees of Point Pleasant Park, unfortunately not many others will if you visit in the future. The city will be cutting 10,000 of the trees down to try to stop the spread of the Spruce Bug, which threatens to wipe out Canada's spruce trees. And Hurrican Juan helped to take down even more of Halifax's trees when he passed through in 2003.
