When WestJet flies to this destination:
The capital city of Halifax and its many surrounding communities make up the Halifax Regional Municipality in the easterly province of Nova Scotia. Here, history, shopping, fine dining, sightseeing, folk music, theatre, high teas, gallery exhibitions and festivals provide unique and entertaining diversions for all tastes.
While visiting, you’ll find a wealth of opportunities to explore Halifax’s rich culture. Visit the Halifax Harbour, one of the busiest ports in Canada and second-largest in the world and admire the expansive natural harbour. Next, take a stroll through Halifax's streets and get a glimpse of the city's past through its stunning historic architecture. The Town Clock located at Brunswick and Citadel Streets is Halifax's most recognized landmark.
Downtown, a collection of lively neighbourhoods await you, complete with upscale boutiques, bars and live music. In the centre of downtown is Citadel Hill (Fort George) – a star-shaped hilltop fort built in the early 1800's. Climb to the top for a breathtaking view of the harbour.
But Halifax's busy urban lifestyle is probably most evident in the scenic waterfront region. Beginning at Sackville Landing and heading towards Purdy's Wharf, you’ll find shops, pubs, warehouses and some of the city’s oldest buildings.
Want to see even more of what the East has to offer? A short drive along the scenic Nova Scotia coast takes you through picturesque fishing villages, including the world-famous Peggy's Cove. You may even spot whales and other marine life. After all, Halifax is also a world-class whale-watching destination and home to dolphins, seals and many species of fish.
Before you go, pay your respects at Fairview Cemetery – the final resting place of 121 of the victims who perished with the Titanic. You’ll even find the gravesite of J. Dawson here – the person believed to have inspired Leonardo DiCaprio's character in the Hollywood blockbuster Titanic.
