Whether you’re a resident or visitor, the best way to explore this city is to start at the vibrant Halifax Waterfront. As you walk along the wharf, you’ll arrive at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, which explores the region’s maritime past and has a collection of artifacts from the Titanic, which sank off the coast of Newfoundland. The boardwalk ends at the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21, which showcases what it was like to immigrate through Pier 21 between 1928 and 1971.
If you’re visiting downtown Halifax, do plan to eat at the King of Donair, a wildly popular chain of restaurants established in 1973 by a Greek immigrant. For the best views of the city, head up the Halifax Citadel, a hill that is designated a National Historic Site for the four fortifications it has seen since 1749 to protect the city.
The urban core of Halifax is linked by two suspension bridges, the Angus L. Macdonald Bridge (also called McDonald Bridge) and A. Murray MacKay Bridge, as well as Highway 2, which runs all the way from Halifax to Fort Lawrence on the New Brunswick border.
