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.
Popular historic sites such as Peggy's Cove Lighthouse and Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 are in your itinerary.

Change things up with these side-trips from Halifax: Lunenburg (Knaut-Rhuland House, St. John's Anglican Church, &more), Lawrencetown Beach (in East Lawrencetown) and Mahone Bay (Have A Yarn, Amos Pewter, &more). Next up on the itinerary: learn about all things military at Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, look for gifts at Cow's, take some stellar pictures from Halifax Citadel National Historic Site of Canada, and sample the tasty concoctions at Alexander Keith's Brewery.
