Trip Advice - Halifax

Postby Rothifer » Fri Oct 14, 2011 11:03 am

Friend of mine loves the area and I have been wanting to road trip Canada for awhile now. So far the only must see is the Naval Museum because my grandfather was stationed there in the war. He passed away recently and he always talked fondly of the place. Tinkering with the idea to get the pig on the knee tattoo while I am there. Oh yeah, we are also going to the Citadel to watch the canon.

Any suggestions about pubs, museums, and nature (like Peggy's Cove) would be appreciated. We are also seriously considering moving there possibly next summer so any suggestions along those lines would be great.

I really enjoyed the Alexander Keith's brewery tour while I was there. (You can also visit his grave at the cemetery.)

The Harbour Hooper amphibious boat tour isn't bad - it'll give you a background of the city and whatnot.

The main shopping area on Spring Garden Road isn't really that interesting... it's pretty generic stores that you'd find in any other Canadian city.

There are a great number of quaint used book stores that are great to check out (if you're into that).

I seem to remember the food at Piccolo Mondo was very good.

Take my recommendations with a grain of salt since this was back in 2005.

Brewery tour and book stores added to list. Piccolo Mondo sounds familiar for some reason....
Thanks!
