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 withHistory

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. The freak has Halifax's best selection of imported candy, chocolate, fizzy drinks and even some kickass milkshakes... all you sweet tooths, beware!
