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.

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

Great place to shop.
A fairly small shopping mall, but it's definitely a good one. Me and the kids got a ton of tshirts at cool as a moose and ate at the restaurant near by
