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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Burntcoat Head Park and Domaine de Grand Pre. Step out of the city life by going to Blomidon Provincial Park and Shubenacadie Wildlife Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Halifax: Lunenburg (Halifax & Southwestern Railway Museum & Knaut-Rhuland House), Crystal Crescent Beach Provincial Park (in Sambro) and Clam Harbour Beach (in Clam Harbour). There's lots more to do: learn about all things military at Halifax Citadel National Historic Site of Canada, enjoy the sand and surf at Martinique Beach Provincial Park, take in nature's colorful creations at Halifax Public Gardens, and identify plant and animal life at Hope For Wildlife.
