Halifax, Canada

Halifax is the so called Canada's Atlantic Gateway. I call it "my gateway to american continent" because my first steps on American soil were right here, in Halifax. From here, I traveled all the way down to South America.

Public Gardens
(This is the picture of Halifax that will always stick in my mind)
With a population of close to 396,000, Halifax Regional Municipality is the largest city east of Quebec and north of Boston. Since its founding in 1749, Halifax has played a key role in the economic and cultural development of Canada and northeastern seaboard.

The Halifax waterfront sets the stage for an ultimate Nova Scotia experience. The waterfront offers an array of shops including hand-crafted crystal and unique pewter to sea-side gifts and authentic Canadian souvenirs and historic photos. For a different kind of adventure, take in an unforgettable international event or discover local folk art and maritime history at one of the museums.
Waterfront restaurants delight your taste buds whether you are seeking fresh Nova Scotia lobster, healthy pizza and wraps or delicious fish and chips. Save room for a scoop of organic ice cream or a piping hot Beaver Tail. Relax on a sun-filled patio or take a leisurely stroll along the boardwalk before touring the city by land or by sea.

Unique boutiques with fashions from around the world flourish alongside stylish restaurants, bars and cafes. Many Spring Garden Area businesses are locally owned and guarantee exceptional customer service and a superior range of unique products and services. Grab a latte, stroll our streets, examine locally made crafts and artwork. From books to fashion, from perfumes to pewter, you'll find it all in the Spring Garden Area.

Ice skating on frozen ponds, hiking through a sylvan paradise bursting to life in the spring or sailing upon-dappled waves, Halifax is a year-round destination. From ambitious adventures to brief escapes, the city boasts countless ways to enjoy the great outdoors: beaches, sailing, canoeing, kayaking, walking and bicycle trails, equestrian activities, golf, rock climbing, skating, skiing, sport fishing, surfing, windsurfing and board sailing.
