5 Reasons Why We Love Halifax Canada

Halifax is the capital city of Nova Scotia and one of our favourite Canadian cities. Of course we’re not alone in this opinion; every year hundreds of thousands of people visit this beautiful city by the sea and fall in love with it too. But why do so many people love Halifax? Let us share with you 5 reasons why we love Halifax.

The Food and Drink
Many people think of Halifax as a party city, but there’s a lot more to it than that. The bar scene is hopping, and there are many top notch restaurants in the city. One advantage of visiting in winter is you can enjoy delicious seafood because it’s what’s fresh at that time of year. Add to that an award-winning craft beer scene (it was recently named Beer City by Ratebeer), and you have a foodie destination on your hands.

The Beaches
From Peggy’s Cove to Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia has some of Canada’s most breathtaking shorelines. After all, there is a reason why so many people flock to Nova Scotia every year during summertime: its coastal beaches are simply stunning. And what is more romantic than laying out on a sandy beach while enjoying one of Nova Scotia’s locally made craft beers? Nothing... absolutely nothing!

The Activities
Halifaxians are passionate about life and as a result, there is no shortage of outdoor activities. Whether you’re looking for high adventure or low adventure, there’s no shortage of things to do in Halifax. From surfing to kayaking, snowboarding to ziplining, if you can think it up, you can do it here! There’s something for everyone including popular attractions like Pier 21 and The Public Gardens.

The People
The people here who are kind, generous, and eager to help. We always feel welcomed and at home here. The Community: Our visits to local farmers market we enjoy talking with the locals, learning about what’s in season, and trying samples of things like maple syrup, honey, and many other delicious treats from the local vendors. We love visiting during the Halifax Jazz Festival because it brings out a lot of community support and showcases the amazing music culture.

The Architecture
Halifax is home to several breathtaking buildings and historical landmarks. Head to Georges Island in downtown Halifax, where you’ll find Fort George Citadel National Historic Site, one of two surviving examples of British military architecture in North America. Built in 1796 by George III, it was constructed to protect colonial shipping from French attacks.

Love it or hate it, you can’t deny that there is something compelling about this city. Maybe it’s because you can feel history under your feet when you walk around downtown. Maybe it’s because of all of its peculiar quirks and delicious food joints, just waiting to be discovered by your adventurous taste buds.
