Halifax Tourism & Travel Guide
Welcome to Halifax!Halifax, the capital of Nova Scotia and the largest municipality in Atlantic Canada, lies on a peninsula alongside one of the world's largest deep water harbours. The rolling hills of this city rise up from the harbour and the historic central district to the upper ramparts of the Halifax Citadel, a star-shaped fortress that offers visitors splendid views of the city and waterfront. While in Halifax be sure to take in the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, which promises an impressive collection of authentic shipwreck artifacts, and Pier 21, a national historic site that proudly showcases Canada's immigrant heritage. Many of the downtown attractions are within walking distance of each other, making this sophisticated urban centre the perfect spot for a walking tour. While in Halifax, most visitors also take the short drive to nearby Peggy's Cove to see the moving SwissAir Flight 111 Memorial and the resident lighthouse, which is believed to be the world's most photographed lighthouse.
The famous Bluenose II is Nova Scotia's sailing ambassador.
