    Pier 21

    4.5
    4 reviews

    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.

    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 ...

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