Experience an exciting part of Canada's history by visiting this 19th-century fort with a sweeping view of downtown Halifax. Between May and October, the Citadel is brought to life by two historic regiments of the British Army - the pageantry of the 78th Highlanders and the precision of the Royal Artillery thrill visitors daily with live re-enactments. The skirl of the bagpipes mixes with the crack of a rifle and the assembly of recruits for the next foot drill.

In winter the Emera oval is teeming with people enjoying the change to ice skate in the sunshine, listening to music, meeting up with friends and then enjoying a beaver tail snack afterwards! There are skate-aids (red "chairs" to hold onto) for novices as well. What a wonderful way to spend a winter afternoon! No charge for skate rental. In the summer, residents and tourists enjoy roller-blading, also for free

Upon opening in 2009, TIBS quickly became known for its baked goods -colossal croissants and super-sized scones are just the tip of the homespun iceberg. Neighbours and master roasters, Anchored Coffee, provide the epic brew. There is no shortage of love at TIBS.

Hands down the best ramen I ever had. I highly recommend their fried chicken ramen. Its surprisingly not very expensive and extremely filling. The only downside/complaint is that they have weird hours and only two people work there, so it can get busy and slightly slow. Nonetheless worth the wait

Some pizza places can be hit or miss. But Mother's is always sure to be awesome. They offer standard and specialty pizzas. Our favorite is the white pizza with nuts, balsamic and arugula. All pizza is oven roasted and sure to please
