  • Stopped here while visiting the farmers market next door. They give yours every hour in French or English. I don’t typically enjoy guided tours, preferring to explore on my own but decided to give it a shot. The tour guide was extremely well versed in the history of Pier 21 and kept the tour interactive. Very well done. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to learn about Canada and how immigration shaped the country.
  • One of my favorite places in all of Nova Scotia. Less than an hour drive from Halifax. We were in port for a cruise rented a care and drive to Peggy’s Cove and the surrounding area. So charming. The lighthouse is one of the most dramatic. However the Cove area is my favorite.
