Halifax travelogue picture
Halifax is the major city of the Maritimes. It is the hub for international flights, Casinos, Festivals, Arts and anything and everything regarding naval history and activities.

Favourite spots:

For a best view of the city one must go up to the Citadel. The Halifax Citadel National Historic Site of Canada, in the summer months, has parading soldiers in period costumes.

What's really great:

Every year, in the middle of July, they have Acadien Festivals which I attend because of course, I'm Acadien, but also one can listen and dance to the old happy songs.
You can hop on the Harbour Hopper boat and explore the land and sea accompanied by a tour guide.


Sights:

Part of the city was accidently blown up quite a few years ago. Many people died, and to learn more about the tragedy and about the powerful story of Canada's immigrants at Pier 21. Also in the same theme you can visit the Shipwreck Exhibit at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic.

The waterfront is rich in history, has many restaurants, clubs and shops.

Other recommendations:

Halifax has festivals almost every week during the summer months. From a Lobster Carnival and Clam Festival to Farm Scottish Concerts. see the www.novascotia.com for more information

As per hotel, The Wandlyn Inns are available throughout the province of Nova Scotia. The rooms are clean and welcoming. The staff very friendly. They also have an integrated restaurant in most hotels. You can have more information about the area you plan to visit and the prices at www.wandlyninns.com

there are more hotel recommendations in my travel tips.

As per camping, the sites are mostly in Cape Breton.
