The capital of Nova Scotia, Halifax sits on the Atlantic Ocean in Eastern Canada. With 6 universities, it is little wonder that it is the city with more pubs per capita than any other Canadian city. At least you won't go thirsty for a drop of amber liquid when you want it. Founded in 1749 it has the largest population east of Quebec City. The Old Town Clock has been keeping time since 1856, whilst the explosion of a gun at midday can still be heard coming from the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site since 1856. Halifax is a major business center known for its maritime history with the second largest ice-free harbor in the world. A trading hub for privateers especially during the 1812 War, it has connections to the sinking of the Titanic with a permanent exhibition at the Titanic Museum.
Dominated by an 1850's star-shaped fort citadel, every year the town hosts the Scotiabank Blue Nose Marathon in May for those that love to run. The International Busker Festival is in August when performers come from all over the world to put a hat or a jar out for tips and perform acrobatics, music of some description or street theater, to entertain the huge gathering for the event.
For the budding buccaneers there is the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic or the old warehouses on the waterfront to meander around. You can go crazy trying to escape from the "Trapped Halifax" or take a tumble in the waves having a surf lesson. The Public Gardens overflow with rare flowers, trees and stunning fountains, or the Point Pleasant Park perched on the tip of the Halifax Peninsula is the perfect place to stroll around, picnic or fly a kite. Whatever you do, take time out to gorge yourself silly on the fresh seafood available at any one of the restaurants dotted around town. Lobster, Atlantic salmon and scallops will leave you impatient for the next excuse to sit down and stuff yourself.
