The largest city on the east coast of Canada, Halifax is a lively gem of a place—due in no small part to its unique combination of military presence (home to the largest Canadian Forces Base and the Atlantic fleet), seven universities and colleges, and reputedly the most bars per capita in the country. Popular day trips include Peggy’s Cove with its iconic lighthouse and landscape strewn of granite boulders, wine tasting in the Annapolis Valley, and the fishing village of Lunenburg, a UNESCO World Heritage site. But there’s a lot to take in Halifax itself: Climb up the steps to the Town Clock and the fortified summit of Citadel Hill, a National Historic Site which dates back to 1749; visit the Public Gardens, the oldest Victorian Gardens in North America; go for a seaside stroll through Point Pleasant Park in the south end of the city; or trace your roots at historic Pier 21, where over 1,000,000 immigrants landed between 1928-1971. Finish your day off at one of Halifax’s trendy restaurants with a meal of Nova Scotia lobster or Digby scallops, accompanied by an Alexander Keith’s beer or glass of Tidal Bay wine.
