Canada's immigration museum. I visited in 1999, and according to wikipedia that was the year the museum opened. Two years earlier I had been to Ellis Island, and there are similarities but Pier 21 is still worth the visit.Popular with

I *highly* recommend the Alexander Keith brewery tour! It's a fantastic experience to tour a historic building in Halifax and taste some delicious Nova Scotian beer. The tour guides dress up in old-fashioned garb and do a bit of fun role-play to make the experience a bit more "authentic", and you'll learn a ton of about the history of Halifax ...Popular with

Pete's Frootique is the closest thing my small hometown has to a Whole Foods market, but if you ask me, it's a little bit better. I'm kind of obsessed with the place. It's whole a huge selection of organic (and non-organic) produce, a wide range of imported goods, gourmet cheeses, a fantastic deli, a posh chocolate and fudge counter and ...

The Freak Lunchbox is a Halifax institution! As a teen, just about every trip downtown consisted of at least one visit to Freak Lunchbox to get my hands on some imported or rare sweets.
