Historic Properties, Halifax

#2 of 12 in Fun & Games in Halifax
Historic Walking Area · Architectural Building
Explore Halifax's rich heritage with a visit to Historic Properties, a set of warehouses that a group of Nova Scotia businessmen began constructing during the Napoleonic wars. An integral part of Canada's formative years, these properties generated enough income to make the region prosperous by aiding trade and commerce. On the other hand, they also have a slightly less savory history of privateering and smuggling. Nowadays, the restored 19th-century buildings host an array of trendy pubs, restaurants, and clothing boutiques.

  • Enjoyed the cool breeze while dining on the deck. Enjoyed the fish and chips. My wife was more than satisfied with the lobster roll. Plus the historic feel of Halifax itself. The entire waterfront is quite awesome.
  • The place is gorgeous and it looks like it is well maintained! The lights at night make this place nice for a romantic stroll with a view of the ocean at the end. Good place to visit if you are planning to do a tiny bit of shopping or to get some snacks like ice cream (although they have restaurants here too). I wish there are more shops at this place, but I guess the area and structures can only accommodate few.
