Highlights of a Free Tour in Halifax

Originally inhabited by the Miꞌkmaq people, Halifax was a favorite destination for European settlers first, and immigrants from all around the world later. As a result, this capital city boasts a rich cultural and culinary heritage that tourists can learn about in Free Tours in Halifax. The fortress of Citadel Hill is the main historical treasure of the region, where visitors can understand the foundation of the city by the English in 1749. Additionally, the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 provides a look into the contemporary history of Halifax. The Maritime Museum of the Atlantic is a favorite place for both travelers and locals due to its huge exhibition of over 30,000 artifacts, including a steamship. On good weather days, the Victorian era Halifax Public Gardens and Point Pleasant Park are also must-visit landmarks. And to get a taste of local arts, we recommend paying a visit to the interesting Art Gallery of Nova Scotia.

Things to Do in Halifax

Halifax is home to some of the most interesting museums of Canada, but none of them equals the Nova Scotia Museum of Natural History. Apart from interesting cultural artifacts, visitors will have the opportunity to meet Gus, one of the oldest tortoises in captivity, who has lived at the museum for most of his life. Another old institution in Halifax is the Farmers' Market, which has been in operation since 1750. You can find this delightful fresh and artisan market right next to the waterfront. It’s perfect to buy anything from food, to pottery, or handmade artisan goods. After shopping, we recommend heading to Alexander Keith's. This iconic brewery was founded in 1820, and even today is a beloved meeting point for locals and tourists. A short ride away from downtown, you can also find nice places for outdoor outings, such as Long Lake Provincial Park, York Redoubt National Historic Site or Halifax Common.
