Planning a vacation (or staycation?) in Halifax? Start by booking a delightful place to stay at some of the best hotels in town. Follow that reservation with a look through our list of super-fun things to do in Halifax—sure to be appreciated by tourists and locals alike. You might want to start by exploring Halifax harbor, one of the deepest and largest in the world, its waters shared by the Royal Canadian Navy, cruise ships, pleasure boaters and a local waterbus: the humble Halifax-Dartmouth ferry. In downtown Halifax, you’ll find museums, galleries and attractions that celebrate a rich maritime history, including relics from the Titanic. For foodies (especially sea-foodies!) there’s no shortage of great restaurants. Set aside at least one afternoon to get out of town and explore the dramatic landscape of Peggy’s Cove or the peaceful, rolling hills of the Annapolis Valley. Have you fallen in love with the city yet?
