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 Lunenburg (St. John's Anglican Church, Peer Gallery, &more), Peggy's Cove (Peggy's Cove Lighthouse & Swissair Flight 111 Memorial) and Chester (The Village Emporium & Graves Island Provincial Park). And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Halifax Citadel National Historic Site of Canada, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Paul's Church, get some jogging in at Point Pleasant Park, and take in the waterfront at Halifax Waterfront Boardwalk.
