For a small city, Halifax offers LOTS to do:
See the Tall Ships swoop in and stay for several days every July. You can even board or take a ride on some of them:
|The BOUNTY - from Mutiny on the Bounty. Sadly, the ship was lost at sea later that summer, during Superstorm Sandy.|
|That's Melissa with her new boyfriends!|
Go to the CITADEL where they do lots of drills and performances. It sits on hill overlooking the city. This was great fun - kids and adults alike will love it:
Looks like Melissa found another boyfriend at the Citadel...
Take a boat tour of the harbor:
Walk the waterfront. A long wharf spans the waterfront downtown. You can walk it from end to end. At one end is a large building with shops and food. All along the way are shops, open air vendors and restaurants. A must-see is the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, right in the heart of the waterfront district. At the far end of the wharf is a casino - in case you are feeling lucky!
