Way better than a rental car

Life’s a beach in Halifax

A small city with a big personality, the urban hub of Atlantic Canada is renowned for its maritime hospitality, culture, history, and waterfront views. 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.

Halifax favourites

From adventures on the waterfront to hip eateries and nightlife, here are our favourite things to do in Halifax.

North End

Known for its cool cafés and colourful historic architecture, the Halifax North End is a hip and trendy neighbourhood brimming with nightlife, restaurants, shopping, and plenty of character.

Halifax Waterfront

Topping the list of must-see Halifax attractions, the harbour calls back to the city’s origins as a port of trade and today offers boardwalk strolls, boutique shops, watercraft rentals, festivals, dining, and swoon-worthy sunset views.

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.
