    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: Halifax's downtown is small and perfect for strolling around. It makes for the perfect pub crawl. It's also home to CFB Halifax, where sailors from all over the world come to. You'll meet them in all the bars. Also, across in Dartmouth, is CFS Shearwater, an air force base, where my younger brother was based. So for the single female, it was a town crawling with men!

    Favorite thing: When going yo Halifax, you have to find time to see all the sights & do all the touristy thinks. Their is a lot of Canadian history in the area that you would not see in most other parts of the country.

    Fondest memory: My fondest memory of Halifax is to be able to sit outside at street bars to have some lunch & a mug of beer. We have some beautiful sunny fall weather most of the time we were there, it made it very enjoyable.

    Fondest memory: The music. Here is one popular Nova Scotian Folk song:
    The sun was setting in the west
    The birds were singing on ev'ry tree
    All nature seemed inclined to rest
    But still there was no rest for me

    Chorus:
    Farewell to Nova Scotia, the sea-bound coast
    Let your mountains dark and dreary be
    And when I am far away on the briny oceans tossed
    Will you ever heave a sigh and a wish for me?

    I grieve to leave my native land
    I grieve to leave my comrades all
    And my aged parents whom I always held so dear
    And the bonnie, bonnie lass that I do adore

    The drums they do beat and the wars do alarm
    The captain calls, we must obey
    So farewell, farewell to Nova Scotia's charms
    For it's early in the morning I am far, far away

    I have three brothers and they are at rest
    Their arms are folded on their breast
    But a poor simple sailor just like me
    Must be tossed and driven on the dark blue sea

    Fondest memory: Taking over the basement in the Split Crow bar, and drinking for 16 hours straight. The picture is my friend Dan, after a full day of drinking. I hope I didn't look that bad!
