One of Canada's most historic communities and the largest municipality in Atlantic Canada, the Halifax and Dartmouth area is half cosmopolitan port city, half youthful university town, with vacation rentals scattered amongst its historic sites, parks, and waterfronts.
In Halifax, experience history and heritage by taking a walking tour of the city or a boat tour of the bustling harbour, which is a port of call for ships from every corner of the globe. Check out the Halifax Citadel, the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, and Pier 21, a National Historic Site that showcases the history of Canadian immigration. Halifax is also the epitome of the Maritime food and cultural scene: fresh seafood and locally sourced dishes are on offer at many of the city’s restaurants, pubs, and cafés.
Known as the â€œcity of lakesâ€, Dartmouth sits across the harbour from Halifax and boasts 23 lakes that provides opportunities for windsurfing, kayaking and golfing in the summer, and cross-country skiing and skating come winter. Nearby Peggy’s Cove makes for an ideal day-trip from the city centre.
With direct flights from Montreal, Ottawa, and Toronto, Halifax and Dartmouth vacation rentals are easily accessible from across Canada and beyond.+ More
