  • Bus Tours

    Halifax Tourist Traps

    There is a company locally that offers double decker bus tours around the city center of Halifax. You can hop on and hop off at various locations and the ticket is good for 48 hours. Why is it a tourist trap? Bloody hell it costs $43 CAD per adult! A family ticket, (2 adults, 2 kids, what if you have more kids?) is $88 CAD. They offer an addon that...

  • Halifax Harbour Waterfront

    Halifax Tourist Traps

    As much as I love the Halifax Harbourfront and the Historic Properties, I must say that it is absolutely seething with tourist traps. Every little souvenier store and trinket shop marks up their tacky crap so that unsuspecting tourists will get gouged. If you want souveniers, avoid this area and go to the outlying malls or even just up the hill...

  • Buskerfest

    Halifax Tourist Traps

The venue in question is the Waterfront Warehouse which is, as the name suggests, a converted warehouse right on the...

  • It's not just about Peggy's Cove

    Most tourists to Nova Scotia end up at Peggy's Cove, to see both the lighthouse and the tiny fishing village among the rocks. But there are many, many other beautiful lighthouses and landscapes in the province. If you are staying in the Halifax area and have the option, go for a coastal drive around the Aspotogan Peninsula, or to Sambro, or along...
