  • We were blessed to have a few sunny days in November. My friends and I walked on the harbour front, admiring the wall murals and the beautiful view. It was a quiet time of the year which I liked...

  • Very good walkway along the seafront and harbour. There are lots of stalls and eating places along the pathway. Unfortunately the weather was very wet so most of the stalls were closed

  • Lovely, serene and historic. A place to relax, a place to explore, a place to enjoy. Eat, drink and be merry! Wear comfy shoes! If you climb the hill to the top take it nice and easy! Surprisingly, going downhill that steep was a challenge too and I was wishing I brought open toe sports sandals too. The whole place is a delight. Worth the visit!
  • Walking the waterfront is my favourite thing to do in Halifax. The boardwalk is incredibly accessible and full of history, beautiful views and great food. Listening to local buskers and people watching is part of the journey. The colourful Adirondack chairs Harbourside are a great place to take in a drink or ice cream and enjoy the afternoon. Highly recommend.
