  • The Waterfront is interesting even if a little touristy... There are good restaurants! Where leave excursions at sea and also the ferry to Dartmouth.

  • Tried to go for a run along the boardwalk about 6pm - it was SO busy it made it very very difficult. But lots of lovely little shops and cafes to go in to. 
  • Can travel all the way from the Via station to the casino. Lots of attraction nearby. Maritime museum nearby. Also many of the local restaurants are on this walkway. Tim Horton's as well 
  • Beautiful and clean waterfront packed with attractions, public art, shops, food stands, and restaurants. Great views of Dartmouth and the outlying islands in the late afternoon. Check out the Visitor Information Center for info on tours and places of interest. Allot at least two hours for a great experience.
