Halifax -- City Amidst the Waters

  4 votes

Halifax travelogue picture
Halifax is rich with history, mostly dealing with the importance of being a port city. Many explorers, armies, and immigrants came this way. Today it's a small bustling city which still holds its relationship with the water as important. Downtown holds a little village atomosphere in some parts; a relaxing place to get lost. Unfortunately time seemed to go by so fast there and my week seemed to just zip by too soon.

Favourite spots:

Water Street, Barrington Street (especially at night), Pleasant Point Park, Dalhousie University, and Bayer Shopping Center.

What's really great:

I went hiking at Spectacle Lake Park in neighboring Dartmouth. I went off the gravel trail and wound up on a dirt trail that went for miles deep into the forest. I would recommend this only to the heartiest of hikers. I hiked four hours in the heat, humidity, and rain, without seeing another human being, before I found civilization once again. But the forest was beautiful and I loved the whole experience.

Sights:

I took the Double-Decker bus tour and got a good look at the sites, of which this city is proud, and got a lot of history of the area. You can buy a ticket and catch this bus near the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, near the intersection of Lower Water and Duke.
