About Downtown Halifax

Downtown Halifax, Nova ScotiaIt's no wonder there is a burgeoning film industry in Halifax. From picturesque Victorian neighborhoods to a rugged and beautiful seaport, this capital city of Nova Scotia is a traveler's delight. A walk through the historic district's cobblestone streets gives way to sparkling high-rise buildings where the best of art, commerce and culture coincide.

Outdoor activities are minutes away and include harbor cruises, fishing and surfing. Festivals take place throughout the year celebrating such diverse subjects as comedy, maple syrup, film, seafood, sandcastle building, flamenco dancing, pop music and many others.

Originally settled by the nomadic Mi'kmaq tribe, Halifax served as a strategically important port for early Europeans, became a significant British base during the Napoleonic wars and its commercial shipping importance continues to this day.

Halifax is the largest metro area east of Montreal and boasts world class restaurants featuring pristinely fresh seafood from the north Atlantic and dining experiences from "eat-in-the-rough" lobster shacks to white tablecloth restaurants. Around every corner are galleries, boutique shops and music venues. Other Attractions include: Dalhousie University, Halifax Public Gardens, Pier 21 and Prince of Wales Towers.
