The Halifax Waterfront is your gateway into the rich and vibrant cultural arena of Halifax. Set against the backdrop of the shimmering, ocean waters and the graceful masts of the ships at port, a walk along Halifax Waterfront will take you past some of the city's most popular attractions. Alongside museums like the Canadian Museum of Immigration and the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, you will find numerous charming boutiques and inviting restaurants to explore. You can also stock up on local specialties at the Halifax Seaport Farmers' Market, or explore the historic warships moored here. With its breathtaking scenery and cultural bounty, the Halifax Waterfront is, not surprisingly, a popular venue for festivals, fairs, concerts and other major events. Stroll here with a loved one early in the morning to watch the sun rise and light up Dartmouth and Georges Island in Halifax Harbour. Experience the best of what Halifax has to offer, and keep your finger on the pulse of the city with a visit to the Waterfront.
