Halifax is located on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean on Nova Scotia's Eastern border. This city of almost 373,000 people is a major economic centre in Atlantic Canada, and its economy is based on government, the Port of Halifax, financial services, telecommunications, manufacturing, retail, and agricultural services.

History, culture, nature, and a cosmopolitan outlook around a historically important and busy harbour sums up the spirit of Halifax for visitors. The charming waterfront is a draw, and features The Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. The Museum teaches visitors about Nova Scotia's marine heritage, including artifacts from the Royal Canadian Navy, Canadian merchant marine, and local shipwrecks. A 1913 steamship is also on display, and the HMCS Sackville is nearby. Pier 21, Canada's Immigration Museum, has been voted one of Canada's seven wonders. For more history check out the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site where kilted soldiers march in front of the Army Museum. Several old churches grace the city, including St. Paul's Anglican Church.

Dating back to 1818, Province House is the seat of Nova Scotia's government. Point Pleasant Park, on land that reaches out into the Atlantic Ocean, has been a popular site for walking, cycling, and picnicking since 1749. The Halifax Public Gardens are a Victorian public garden and a designated National Historic Site. Nearby, Fisherman's Cove offers opportunities to watch working fishermen arrive ashore with their catch. For a refreshing tour, Alexander Keith's Nova Scotia Brewery offers history lessons delivered by people in period costumes.
