With a long history of education, economics and affluence, Halifax is a port city with a heart of gold. Situated on the Atlantic in eastern Canada, the capital city of Nova Scotia has grown from a historic port to a center for modern business. Guests of our hotels in Halifax will find themselves no more than a short trip away from the sandy beaches of the Eastern Shore, the historic Public Gardens, and even the famous St. Paul’s Church––the very first Anglican Church built in the Americas.
If parts of Halifax look familiar, you might recall seeing the city in the movie Titanic. And that’s not the city’s only connection to the entertainment industry- both Sarah McLachlan and Ellen Page are among Halifax’s famous residents. Hotel guests are likely to happen upon the location of one of the many features filmed in town, and the influence of the arts can be seen around the city at places like Alderney Landing and the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia.
For travelers eager to learn more about the seafaring lifestyle, take a tour of the 200 year-old restored fishing village, Fisherman’s Cove. The Maritime Museum of the Atlantic is another great spot to brush up on your seafaring lore. Or, spend the day scanning the seas for whales onboard the Peggy’s Cove Express. Even a stroll along the Halifax Waterfront is a way to feel connected to the city’s past as a major Canadian port.
