Hugging the coastline of one of the largest natural harbours in the world, Halifax is a vibrant capital city that effortlessly blends seaport industry and modern architecture with diverse culture and historic landmarks. (Oh, and a whole lot of pubs).
Pull up a barstool in the city with the most breweries per-capita in Canada! Grab a pint of local craft beer, a glass of award-winning wine, or a tumbler of rum and experience live music reflecting our Acadian and Celtic traditions.
Halifax’s downtown is compact, backdropped by a bustling harbour that entertains cargo and cruise ships from around the world. From the brand new, state-of-the-art Halifax Convention Centre, it’s easy to walk or bike (and sometimes Segway) through the city and along our waterfront boardwalk, which at four kilometres in length, is among the longest in the world. On your way, stop at restaurants, cafés, shops, galleries, and museums that showcase our rich Mi’kmaq, Acadian, African Nova Scotian and Gaelic influences and traditions.
Many unique, authentic experiences and renowned attractions are within a few hours drive of Halifax, making the city a great start for any trip to the province. Within one day, you can discover Peggy’s Cove in the morning light and sail on the Bluenose II in Old Town Lunenburg (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), or go wine tasting in the Annapolis Valley and dine on the ocean floor at the site of the world’s highest tides—and still be back in time to experience Halifax’s dynamic nightlife.
Come discover what makes Halifax one of the world’s top destinations on the rise!
