Halifax, Nova Scotia: Why It Is Hard To Leave & Top Reasons To Visit
A visit to Halifax, Nova Scotia, comes with an instant thought: why didn't I book my trip for longer? With so much to see, it's a city to keep on your travel list and start planning a second trip back before the first even finishes. The capital of Nova Scotia, Halifax, is the largest city in Atlantic Canada. Halifax is also a city that doesn't shy away from green space. Take Point Pleasant Park, one of my favorite spots for a run, where you can follow an outfacing trail for coastal views or an interior one to check out the Acadian Forest. But the biggest draw here is the two-mile waterfront promenade, set up with all kinds of shops, restaurants, and museums in former stone warehouses. This video shows you our favorite place to stay for history, location, and amenities: The Westin. We also go inside one of North America's Oldest Breweries, hope on a Harbour Hopper Tour, dine around and visit two museums you don't want to miss.
My passion for travel was unlocked when I spent some years living across Europe and South America. I've never been one to shy away from a new adventure, be it swimming with pigs in the Bahamas, bird watching in the Galapagos or Heli-Hiking in British Columbia. And while I used to mostly travel solo, I now like to hit the road with my 4-year-old son, 1-year-old-daughter and husband in tow. The best part of travel to me now is getting to see the world through their eyes. Whether they are petting goats during an Oregon farm stay or making their very own pizza in Idaho, their enthusiasm and joy never fails to remind me of why I love travel.
