TOURING HALIFAX

Walking Tour of Halifax: You may walk all or part of this, or combine it with the Hop On Hop Off bus tour (see previous page). The complete walk is 3.5 miles. Walk north from the cruise terminal. Next door is the Museum of Immigration ($11/$7). Visit now, or at tour’s end. Then comes the farmer’s market; stop now, stalls close by 5:00 pm. Enter HarbourWalk. You’ll soon find kiosks peddling bike and fishing gear rentals, and the upscale shops of Bishop’s Landing. Just across Water St. is Alexander Keith’s Brewery Market, a charming atrium mall housing Red Stag Tavern and the Brewery Tour ($25.95/$11.95). The tour, led by historical re-enacters, is a fun diversion, and includes samples. Return to HarbourWalk at Sackville Landing, where you’ll find the Visitor Center, a unique playground, historic ships, and harbor cruises. Cable Wharf is home to the very worthy Maritime Museum of the Atlantic ($9.55/$5.15), plus shops, eateries, the enjoyable Harbour Hopper land/sea tour ($35/$20), and Theodore Tugboat, a kid-focused harbor cruise ($20/$15). Then head up George St. Art Gallery of Nova Scotia ($12/$7) is good on a foul-weather day. Otherwise, move on to St. Paul’s Church, and farther uphill to Brunswick St., the landmark Town Clock, and the stairway to The Citadel. Enter the fortress ($8/$4) to walk the battlements, enjoy the views, and visit the exhibits. Try to catch the firing of the Noon Gun. Return to Brunswick St. and walk south two blocks to the Spring Garden Road shopping district. Turn right and walk four blocks to the Public Garden, the very model of a Victorian-era English park. Walk south on South Park St. to South St., head east past the Chapel of Our Lady of Sorrows, and continue on to the cruise pier.

Other Sights: Fisherman’s Cove, at the southeast end of Halifax harbor, is an easy-to-get-to working fishing village, with a small museum, shops, and restaurants. Allow 2-3 hours (hire a taxi tour at the cruise pier). Peggy’s Cove is the top out-of-town sight. It’s quite pretty but offers little else, and the only restaurant is a bit of a tourist trap.
