Halifax Holidays Overview


Halifax is the largest city in Canada's Atlantic Provinces and a city with an important maritime history. Halifax is the cultural and economic hub in Eastern Canada with an extremely busy seaport. The residents of the city take great pride in their warm hospitality and the city's slower pace.

The urban core of the city is where a number of landmarks and historic buildings are located. The Citadel Hill with the Halifax Town Clock is the symbol of the city. This classic fort is a National Heritage Site. Located on top of the Citadel Hill, it offers beautiful views of the harbor. The waterfront of Halifax also has a number of historic buildings, restaurants and shops. Pier 21 is a historic building that processed over a million immigrants, leading to its being named the National Immigration Museum.

The South End in Halifax is known for its impressive Victorian houses. The North End and West End have well preserved wooden homes with unique features like the Halifax Porch. The campus of Dalhousie University is also quite well known and featured in a number of documentaries and films.
