The largest city on Canada's eastern coastline, Halifax boast a rich maritime history and occupies a strategically important location with one of the world's greatest natural harbors.
Venture out of the city with trips to Swissair Flight 111 Memorial (in Indian Harbour) and Peggy's Cove Lighthouse (in Peggy's Cove). There's lots more to do: don't miss a visit to Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21, learn about all things military at Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, indulge your thirst for a good beer at Alexander Keith's Brewery, and take in the waterfront at Halifax Waterfront Boardwalk.

Small in terms of land area, Nova Scotia nevertheless encompasses nearly 3,800 islands floating in the Atlantic just off Canada's mainland. A vacation in Nova Scotia is understandably an ocean-based experienced, allowing you to stay within 60 km (40 mi) of the water no matter where you choose to base your adventure. Stay near the ocean, and you'll find mostly lighthouses and small settlements living off lobster fishing. Drive or cycle inland, and the landscape changes dramatically, with pretty orchards and photogenic highlands dominating the geography everywhere you look. For urban amenities during your Nova Scotia holiday, look no farther than provincial capital Halifax, offering the region's biggest range of shopping, dining, and entertainment options.
