A lot of walking but the city is small from one end to the other, Had a great time here. Even check out the local resale shops. Great finds. Food was good. Local beers was even better. Everyone was so friendly. It's absolutely beautiful here with a lot of history. Won't disappoint. Great adventure

Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada - My hometown! It's not a super hot tourist destination for anyone who isn't a Canadian or a New Englander, but let me guarantee you that Nova Scotia is worth the visit. Steeped in history, this small city packs a cultural punch. Boasting 5 universities and the worlds second biggest natural harbour, this seaside city is extremely vibrant.
We think of ourselves as "little big city"...a city small enough to retain a small-town sensibility and friendliness, yet big enough to have all the amenities of a city twice its size.
Halifax has a gorgeous and walkable downtown filled with independent shops and businesses, but not very fantastic public transportation.... so you'll want to rent a car whilst you're there....especially if you plan on getting out of the city to explore Nova Scotia's famous coastline.
I miss Halifax for it's fresh seafood and plentiful pubs! It competes only with St John's, Newfoundland for most bars per capita in North America. You can't *not* have a good time Halifax...enjoy your stay!

Halifax is a small city with a modest population. It's very good for history buffs as it hosts a Titanic cemetery, the Citidal Hill and several museums. As a coastal city there are plenty of attractions by the water (Halifax Harbour) with boat tours operating seasonally. There are a number of charming shops and boutiques downtown where a distinct Old World atmosphere dominates. Streets are narrow and don't provide ideal driving but the scenery makes up for the inconvenience and sidewalks are fairly wide.

Halifax, Nova Scotia is my hometown, and a beautiful place to visit. Settled in 1749, the city contains a wealth of history. Nova Scotia is known as "Canada's Ocean Playground"; you will never be far from the Atlantic Ocean. Enjoy the harbor boardwalk, the public gardens, a weekend farmers market. Local restaurants serve fresh, local dishes. There is also a vibrant bar scene. You will never be bored in Halifax, or Nova Scotia.
