Halifax

4.3
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. In a city that serves as a busy Atlantic seaport, most Halifax holidays understandably include some water-based activities. Boat and ferry tours, surfing, fishing, and watching the sun set over the water top most Halifax itineraries, though you can always get away from the sea by delving into the city's vibrant arts and entertainment scene. This old city manages to feel both historic and young, serving as home to a large student population attending classes at one of six respected universities. Halifax is in Halifax Region. Our Canada day trip website combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.
