Atlantic Canada’s largest urban centre, Halifax is a historic port city that has been welcoming visitors and immigrants from around the world for centuries. It marries a rich maritime history with a sweeping range of restaurants and pubs, hotels, inns, galleries, museums, historic attractions and entertainment of all stripes.
At the edge of the bustling downtown core is the city’s historic waterfront. Anchored by one of the world’s longest urban boardwalks, visitors will find a host of eateries, local businesses, farmers’ markets, buskers and the gateway to a bevy of adventures by land and sea. Be sure to explore both sides of the harbour (Dartmouth and Halifax) and include a short ride on North America’s oldest saltwater ferry system in your exploration. Halifax is proud to host the grand Tall Ships again this year as a key rallying point and the final leg of the race for Rendez-Vous 2017 Tall Ships Regatta.
