Halifax City Break
Holiday Reference: 16455
Halifax is Nova Scotia’s quaint and quirky capital city and can enthral visitors from the moment they arrive. A strong multi-cultural influence is felt here, from French-speaking villages on the city outskirts to First Nations communities, all living in a balance of harmony. This suggested itinerary allows you to explore Halifax at your own leisure.
On arrival into Halifax, transfer independently to your overnight hotel. Take some time to explore at leisure – ramble along the city streets before enjoying dinner at a local restaurant. For your first evening, we recommend the Five Fishermen.
Today you can explore the past that made Halifax the multicultural tapestry that it is today. Learn the stories of the first settles at Pier 21 to see the Immigration Museum before visiting the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. Later, why not discover the culinary scene that Halifax is famous for? Sample some beer at the famous Alexander Keith’s Brewery and check out local produce at the Farmer’s Market. Enjoy some time to rest before enjoying an unforgettable evening onboard a party cruise of the Tall Ship Silva.
Discover Halifax’s colourful military past with a visit to Citadel Hill – if you're there around lunchtime you will hear the noon-time gun go off. Come down from the hill at your own pace and head towards Spring Garden Road for a bite to eat before entering the Halifax public gardens, allowing yourself to be immersed in Halifax’s natural surroundings.
See a different side of the city as you go on a journey onboard the Harbour Hopper. Learn the fascinating history of Halifax – both on land and at sea – with the expert knowledge of a local guide. Enjoy an afternoon at leisure, or perhaps a local tasting tour before enjoying another meal in a beloved local restaurant.
Today you will say goodbye to this nautical city, but take some time to unwind before you head to the airport. Take it easy with a lazy brunch, or even head to one of the city’s many spas.
