The City of Halifax (est. 1841) was the capital of the province of Nova Scotia and shire town of Halifax County, and was the largest city in Atlantic Canada until it was amalgamated into Halifax Regional Municipality in 1996. The Town of Halifax was founded by British government under the direction of the Board of Trade and Plantations under the command of Governor Edward Cornwallis in 1749. After a protracted struggle between residents and the Governor, the City of Halifax was incorporated in 1841. (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/City_of_Halifax)

With its sandy beaches, rugged shorelines, colorful fishing-village1gardens, and charming fishing villages, Atlantic Canada’s largest city has much to offer.

Dartmouth’s Heritage Walk will take you on a 1-2 hour tour where you will see beautiful homes, historic buildings, parks, lakes, wildlife and more.

Exploring the Eastern Shore along Marine Drive treats visitors to spectacular beaches, parks, and historic buildings and homes. This area is a land of island-filled bays, broad sandy beaches and seaside villages. Inland, there are lakes and rivers renowned for canoeing and fishing.

Exploring Halifax Harbour offers a great view of the harbour and a fun, relaxing way to reach Dartmouth. You can take the Halifax-Dartmouth Ferry which operates throughout the day between the downtown terminal near Historic Properties and Dartmouth’s Ferry Terminal Park.
