Surprisingly scenic with diverse attractions and a must-visit in any Nova Scotia road trip, Halifax will keep you busy enjoying everything from hip eateries to sprawling beaches.

Soak up the charm of this port city before booking a car and escaping to lighthouse-studded shores and rugged highlands.

Point Pleasant Park

Enjoy a hike, bike ride, walking tour, or a performance of Shakespeare in this forested park perched on the south end of the Halifax peninsula, just a stone’s throw from downtown with a view of McNab’s Island.

Gerry was a remarkably gracious host and his car is an already classic drive. He went the extra mile in many different ways and truly helped me put a positive face on a difficult trip for me, which also took place at a challenging time for travel. Both Gerry and his car exceeded my expectations in every possible way.

Gerry was an amazing Turo host! The vehicle was clean, the gas was full, and he took time out of his day to explain how to operate the vehicle (which was very much appreciated because every vehicle is different and I'm grateful I didn't have to figure anything out on the fly while I was driving!). Gerry was a great communicator—he made himself available to contact via text, checked in to make sure that everything was going okay, and was very flexible with the return time. I had such a great experience renting a vehicle from Gerry and I will definitely be doing it again in the future! Thanks Gerry—you rock!
