Steeped in history and culture, life in Halifax revolves around the sea. But there’s so much more! From bustling city streets to leisurely strolls through the magnificent Public Gardens, to sailing tours of Halifax Harbour, to exploring Pier 21, the Discovery Centre, or the Museum of Natural History—there are so many things to do in Halifax.

Not only is Halifax the quintessential Maritime destination—where you can tour a natural harbour via a Halifax tall ship or relax on the waterfront, soaking up sea air—it’s also the cultural hub of Atlantic Canada. Come to Halifax for an evening stroll along our breathtaking harbourfront; discover shopping, entertainment, and restaurants all within walking distance from the downtown core; and get a dose of Maritime history at attractions like the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic and the Halifax Citadel National Historic Sites.

Real people, rich culture and music, historic architecture, and natural maritime beauty—these things leave visitors to Halifax with a long lasting desire to return.
