Create an itinerary including Historic Properties
Explore Halifax's rich heritage with a visit to Historic Properties, a set of warehouses that a group of Nova Scotia businessmen began constructing during the Napoleonic wars. An integral part of Canada's formative years, these properties generated enough income to make the region prosperous by aiding trade and commerce. On the other hand, they also have a slightly less savory history of privateering and smuggling. Nowadays, the restored 19th-century buildings host an array of trendy pubs, restaurants, and clothing boutiques.

  • The old properties can be explored as you walk along the boardwalk; there are various plaques that provide additional information.

  • Nice place to stroll around while walking through downtown Halifax. Lots of small local shops and restaurants to fill your hours.

  • Beautiful little shopping place. Some stores are so cute and have lots of neat stuff. Location is superb, right on the Halifax waterfront.
  • The place is gorgeous and it looks like it is well maintained! The lights at night make this place nice for a romantic stroll with a view of the ocean at the end. Good place to visit if you are planning to do a tiny bit of shopping or to get some snacks like ice cream (although they have restaurants here too). I wish there are more shops at this place, but I guess the area and structures can only accommodate few.
