This exciting once-in-a-lifetime experience of Halifax’s Top Ten things to see and do is designed for those who want to see it all in a short time.
Your tour starts with a tour to Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia’s most authentic fishing village. Here you will have time see the well known lighthouse which is the most photographed in Canada, take time to visit and explore the rugged, sea-sculpted granite shores and even touch a live lobster.
On your return to the city learn about the maple syrup industry as you make a stop at Acadian Maple and sample a sweet treat made from real maple syrup. Continue to Halifax, visit the Fairview Lawn Cemetery where 121 victims of the Titanic disaster are buried. Visit the busiest street east of Montreal and voted "best place to people watch” Spring Garden Road with its many restaurants, boutiques and services.
Escape to the lush oasis of the Public Gardens—an authentic Victorian garden nestled in the city’s busy downtown. Your next stop is atop Citadel Hill, one of Canada’s most visited National Historic Sites where you will have an amazing photo opportunity of the city.
Drive along the Halifax Waterfront where you will see the longest oceanfront boardwalk in Canada and the unique stone buildings of the first business in Halifax. See Historic Properties and hear of the tales of privateers and pirates and the founding fathers of the banking industry of Canada whose roots started here. Finally, pass by Nova Scotian Crystal where skilled artisans craft mouth-blown, hand-cut crystal, the only place of its kind in Canada.
Note: Admission to the Citadel Hill is NOT included.
