5 Places to Visit in Halifax

Halifax is an awesome place to move to, live in, or just visit. It's  big city with a small community feel. While it may have a population of nearly half a million people, it is a university town and features many local businesses and community activities. 

Because Halifax is so large and diverse, there are many things to do. Because it has a tight-knit feel, many of the activities are high quality.

Here are five things to do in Halifax on your next visit or a free weekend in which you want to explore something new:

#1. Waterfront Boardwalk

Take a stroll on the longest wooden waterfront boardwalk in all of North America. You can take in beautiful views of the city skyline and the harbor from the boardwalk. Along the way, you can make a stop at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, which features many relics of the sea. Among them, you'll find the largest collection of wooden artifacts from the Titanic, as well as a display from the Halifax explosion of 1917.

#2. Halifax Farmer's Market

This isn't some roadside vegetable stand. The Halifax Farmer's Market is the longest running farmer's market in North America, and it is huge. You can browse locally grown produce, meats, pastries, flowers, ice cream, jewelry and more. You can get something good to eat, pick up some gifts, and enjoy time watching people and taking in the sights of the city.

#3. Alexander Keith's Brewery

At this brewery, you can get a theatrical tour that includes actors in period costume. You'll learn about life in Halifax in 1863 and all about how beer is made. You'll also get to taste a couple of drafts at the end of the tour.

#4. Citadel Hill

Head to the highest point in the city for breathtaking views of the skyline. You can also tour Fort George at the top of the hill, as well as see the town clock bestowed by the Duke of Kent in 1803. Costumed actors provided a guided tour of Fort George.

#5. Public Gardens

The Public Gardens sit behind Citadel Hill, and they take up two acres of land. The same designer of Central Park in New York City designed the Public Garden, which feature a Victorian style design. Explore hundreds of flowers, fountains and more. 

Check out some of these great activities on your next free weekend in Halifax, whether you are trying to 
learn more about your community or you are visiting the area.

I was looking for a moving company to move my entire inventory to another warehouse. My colleague recommended Two Small Men for their professiolism. I followed the advice and received a super moving service. Thank you for great job.

I called several moving companies but I was most comfortable with Two Small Men's reviews and got a really professional feel when I first called in. They were great to deal with and get back to you quickly on rates and availability. We needed help packing a pod and getting a two bedroom across the city. They moved everything tight but carefully and I appreciate that they used runners, blankets, foam and plastic where needed.

I was moving from Vancouver to White Rock. There was a lot of packing boxes in my basement and the idea of moving them all was pretty daunting. I hired Two Small Men - they were very efficient, and finished moving within one day.
I just moved in from Edmonton Downtown to Fraser and I got an easy moving experience with Two Small Men.

I just moved in from Edmonton Downtown to Fraser and I got an easy  moving experience with Two Small Men. I just got their company from google and called immediately and afterwards we had a very friendly transaction and they did what they promised. I am very happy on my moving day and no regrets for contacting this company even if I never heard them before. If you are looking for a free-stress moving day, I highly recommend this company.
