Your guide to Halifax

All About Halifax

The provincial capital of Nova Scotia, Halifax is noted for its maritime history, blend of architectural styles — the glass of Halifax Central Library sits comfortably alongside 19th-century buildings such as the Old Town Clock — and as a convenient jumping-off point for exploring the surrounding area’s natural beauty. Home to one of the largest ice-free harbors in the world, Halifax became one of the most prolific commercial ports on the eastern seaboard. Today, a stroll along the downtown waterfront takes in heritage vessels, sailboats, and tugboats still zigzagging around the harbor.

The Atlantic port city is also known for its universities, thriving arts scene, and bohemian neighborhoods. There’s classic and cutting-edge art to admire, while historical walking tours can lead you through the city’s past, and the North End is home to a host of buzzing craft breweries. Halifax performs a careful balancing act, both a business hub and a center for the arts, brimming with modernity and dripping with history.


How do I get around Halifax?

Flying directly into Halifax Stanfield International Airport (YHZ) allows you to take advantage of the area’s efficient public transportation system. Getting into Halifax proper from the airport is as easy as hopping on one of the buses that depart every 30 minutes during the busy season. Ride-hailing options and car rentals are also available right outside of the terminal. There are several ways to get around the city. Buses, taxis, and ride-hailing apps are the most prevalent options available for quick transportation. However, bike paths are readily available, and the city has a strong reputation for being very walkable. Several ferries also connect to various points on the harbor and offer breathtakingly scenic views of the waterfront.


When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Halifax?

The most popular time to visit vacation rentals in Halifax is during the summer months, when temperatures are the most pleasant and rainfall is minimal. However, temperate conditions are still possible during the spring and fall shoulder seasons. The music festival in late spring and jazz festival in the height of summer are well attended by locals and visitors alike. The fall brings a performing arts event and a well-known film festival. The relatively mild winters here can come as a surprise, provided you have the appropriate layers and boots on. Check out the local lights festival for an inspiring display of Christmas lights, carolers, food vendors, and warm drinks in Cornwallis Park.


What are the top things to do in Halifax?

Sea kayaking in Halifax Harbor

Get an unparalleled view of the harbor and waterfront by renting a sea kayak and touring the waters and coastlines of Halifax. This easy-going activity is the best way to experience a bit of nature without even leaving the city, whether you follow the 2.5-mile boardwalk or venture across the bay to McNabs Island. Go it alone or hire a guide for a deeper dive into the harbor’s history and wildlife-spotting tips.

North End Halifax

North End Halifax is the city’s premier bohemian neighborhood, home to a slew of award-winning restaurants, boutique shops, and a thriving arts scene. When the day turns to night, be sure to check out a craft brewpub. North by Night market’s lively blend of DJ sets, vintage gems, and foodie treats marks the start of the summer.

Georges Island

Set in the center of the city’s harbor, Georges Island is home to Fort Charlotte. What used to serve as a fortification against invasion now operates as a historical site for visitors and history buffs. The entire island is worth exploring, but the tunnels beneath the fort are of particular note. Guided tours are available for the labyrinth that used to store gunpowder and munitions for the fort’s armaments.
