I love Halifax!!! It's the perfect small city with a lot of historic character and a great artistic vibe. The Farmer's Market's are fantastic. There are a variety of theatre and music to enjoy, in varied venues to appeal to everyone.

Early autumn and summer time is the best time to visit Nova Scotia.  The climate is moderate by the adjacent Atlantic Ocean.  Nova Scotia benefits from a mix of warm southern breezes and cool northern currents. Due to this, the province is spared the thermal extremes with typical summer and winter season. The high tourist season is from July to early September.

Begin your tour of the area at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, which has recovered wooden artefacts from where the fateful Titanic ship sank (around 121 of the Titanic survivors are laid to rest in a long solemn line at the Fairview Cemetery).
Outside the museum is a docked hydrographic British vessel called CSS Acadia which can be explored in the summer.
Also visit the Halifax Citadel, which is an old star-shaped fort on a hill overlooking the city. This national historic site has a museum and a fantastic view of the harbour and the Angus L. Macdonald Bridge which ... More connects Halifax to the city of Dartmouth.
Another spectacular monument is the gothic-styled Cathedral Church of All Saints. Not too far away are the Waterfront, which offers you an excellent view of the city’s harbour, and the Atlantic Canada Aviation Museum, with its superb collection of artefacts and aircrafts on display.

Halifax is the largest city in Atlantic Canada and a busy seaport, with a rich maritime heritage. It is the capital city of the Nova Scotia province and an economic and cultural hub of the eastern shores of the country.
The city is served by the Halifax Robert L. Stanfield International Airport. The VIA Rail has daily connections to Montreal, Toronto and North-eastern US cities.
The proximity to the Atlantic Ocean results in Halifax having a maritime climate with cool summers (23°C) and mild winters (–1°C). Maximum precipitation is during the winter, including snow and fog. ... More
The population of the city is more than 300,000; the people are locally referred to as ‘Haligonians’. The city is the eleventh largest in Canada and is home to 3 major universities, resulting in a large student population.

If you constantly want to be by the Sea this is the place to be. Peggy's Cove, Lawence Town Beach, Clam Harber and that geeral area. Luninburg Hubberts, Queens Land. Be sure and visit down town around the Ferrie Docks, lots to see and great eating experiences. Public Gardens was one of my absolute favorite places as well as Point Pleasent Park growing up didn't cost you a dime but these two places you could go to every day and never tire. Have been away from Halifax for 41 years now and do not for all sorts of reason get back often enough. Miss this area and my extended family a lot. There's no place like HOME.
