The noon gun still sounds from the hillside Citadel, reminding halifax of its British history. Its a good town for strolling and exploring the shops in the Historic Properties. Or venture out to Peggy's Cove, along the Lighthouse Route, for fresh lobster and scenic seascapes worthy of the many painters who summer here.
Take in the craggy coastline from the dramatic Peggy's Cove Lighthouse and drive through the beautiful Nova Scotia countryside. Don't miss your chance to stroll through the Victorian-style Public Gardens, gaze on the places described in Londfellow's epic poem, 'Evangeline', and walk through historic Halifax, stopping for tea and crumpets.
