Sitio histórico
“Experience an exciting part of Canada's history by visiting this 19th-century fort with a sweeping view of downtown Halifax. Between May and October, the Citadel is brought to life by two historic regiments of the British Army - the pageantry of the 78th Highlanders and the precision of the Royal Artillery thrill visitors daily with live re-enactments. The skirl of the bagpipes mixes with the crack of a rifle and the assembly of recruits for the next foot drill. There's no shortage of authentic experiences to view and participate in! Kids will love the Xplorers Program - an activity book just for them. When the sun sets, it's time to experience the other side of the Citadel - join the Citadel Ghost Walk and experience the dark and eerie lore from the early 1800s. Tours start mid-July and run every Friday and Saturday nights starting at 8:30 pm until the end of October. Cash at the front gate.”

Playground
“The Waterfront Boardwalk ties together the primary tourism attractions along the Halifax Harbour and offers a mostly flat walking/biking/mobility vehicle route to access shopping & dining options. You can stop and visit the Canadian Museum of Immigration, the Halifax Seaport Farmers' Market, the collection of temporary food shacks & seasonal vendors at the base of Salter Street, and the various places to linger for very good views of the Harbour & watercraft & Georges Island Lighthouse. There are a handful of public parking options along the length of the Boardwalk, with others up the hill in the city. You can also take one of two ferries from the Dartmouth side of the Harbour to access the Halifax Waterfront.”

Parque
“Hemlock Ravine Park is 200-acre habitat with opportunities for walking, nature observation, and relaxation. The 4-km stacked loop trails offer many routes for jogging and observation of nature in all seasons. New maps and signage assist in navigating the trails. The heart-shaped pond known as Julie’s Pond was built by Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, for his mistress. (Note: Please do not feed the waterfowl.) The round white building opposite the park is a historic site but is not open to the public. ”
