Halifax Vacation Packages
A Halifax vacation doesn't often spring to mind as the place for a city break.
However, we think it is one of Canada's best kept secrets and the perfect stopover on an Atlantic Maritimes road trip.
Providing the perfect base to explore the enchanting coastlines of the Maritimes and colorful towns of Nova Scotia, Halifax is a vibrant and cultural city where you can really enjoy the best of both worlds.
Stunning Halifax offers so many spectacular things to do.
From the walkable city to charming rural communities, put on your most comfortable walking shoes and follow in the footsteps of princes, privateers and press gangs as you walk through some of Canada's oldest history. When it's time to take a break, visit the unique shops, restaurants and tall ships along the boardwalk or pop into a pub. For a city with more pubs and clubs per capita than almost any city in Canada, it’s fitting that the most famous brew master was also the city's mayor - not just once, but three times! Alexander Keith’s original 1820 brewery welcomes visitors with costumed guides, stories and, of course, good ale.
Outdoor AdventureExperience Halifax through its pristine seacoast and Maritime landscapes. The sheer number of outdoor activities, trails, and off-the-beaten path adventures will surely appeal to your inner explorer. A must-visit? The famous Peggy’s Cove – a small rural community located on the eastern shore of St. Margarets Bay in Nova Scotia. Best known for the Peggy's Point Lighthouse, you can snap your fair share of images whilst enjoying the salty sea breeze.
Arts and CultureRich historic and contemporary artwork is on display in Halifax, Nova Scotia, the heart of East Coast arts and culture. Be sure to stop in at the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21. Over 1.5 million immigrants, war brides, displaced people, evacuee children and Canadian military personnel passed through this famous building between 1928 and 1971.
Maritime & Halifax’s HistoryThe Maritime Museum of the Atlantic is located in the heart of the Halifax waterfront. There’s no better place to immerse yourself in Nova Scotia’s rich maritime heritage, from the small craft boatbuilding to World War convoys and even artifacts from the RMS Titanic. In fact, Halifax is the final resting place of 121 victims, all buried at the Fairview Lawn Cemetery. The Halifax Citadel National Historic Site also gives visitors the opportunity to explore the history of the fortress and the soldiers who were stationed there. Walk within its walls – both inside and out – and literally touch a piece of Halifax’s military history.
Touring around the province of Nova ScotiaWith easy accessibility via rail network to the rest of eastern Canada, Halifax is the perfect base for touring around Nova Scotia and the other Atlantic provinces.
