Halifax, NS, Canada
Hard to Leave Halifax: Top Reasons to Visit (Twice)A visit to Halifax, Nova Scotia comes with an instant thought: why didn’t I book my trip for longer? With so much to see, it’s a city to keep on your travel list and start planning a second trip back before the first even finishes.
The capital of Nova Scotia, Halifax is the largest city in Atlantic Canada. Many Haligonians tell me Americans who visit often compare it to Boston, not only in terms of size but also as a lively city that is hip and fun. Halifax is also a city that doesn’t shy away from green space. Take Point Pleasant Park, one of my favorite spots for a run, where you can follow an outfacing trail for coastal views or an interior one to check out the Acadian Forest.
But the biggest draw here is the two-mile waterfront promenade, set up with all kind of shops, restaurants and museums in former stone warehouses. It’s easy to loose track of time here looking at historic ships docked next to sleek yachts and peering across the water for maritime views this area is famous for. In this video we show you our favorite place to stay for history, location and amenities: The Westin
We also go inside one of North America's Oldest Breweries, hope on a Harbour Hopper Tour, dine around and visit two museums you don't want to miss.
