The capital of Nova Scotia, Halifax has a fascinating maritime history, making for a truly intriguing day of exploring. Many of the attractions of the town are based around the waterfront, including the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, where you’ll be able to see the world’s leading collection of Titanic memorabilia including one of the few surviving deck chairs from the ship. You can also visit Pier 21, where thousands of people would have entered the country when immigrating throughout the 20th century, with many personal stories that bring the Immigration Museum to life. Don’t miss the Bluenose II, a schooner that’s considered to be Nova Scotia’s floating ambassador.
Outside the town, you can pay a visit to the charming fishing village of Peggy’s Cove, with its delightfully peaceful atmosphere offering the perfect scenery for a relaxing stroll. You can also see the famous Peggy’s Point Lighthouse, decorated in classic red and white and in use now for over a century. It’s also worth paying a visit to Lunenburg, a UNESCO heritage site where British colonials settled in the 18th century with much of the original town preserved.
The currency in Halifax is the Canadian Dollar. Halifax is 3 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (GMT -3).
