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.
Shop till you drop at Amos Pewter and Cow's. Do some cultural sightseeing at Peggy's Cove Lighthouse and Halifax Citadel National Historic Site of Canada. Change things up with these side-trips from Halifax: Lunenburg (St. John's Anglican Church & Ironworks Distillery), Mahone Bay (Suttles & Seawinds, Haskapa, &more) and Lawrencetown Beach (in East Lawrencetown). There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Clam Harbour Beach, stroll through Crystal Crescent Beach Provincial Park, steep yourself in history at Grand Pre National Historic Site, and indulge your thirst for a good beer at Alexander Keith's Brewery.
