Learn About This Location
Halifax is port city in eastern Canada, and capital of Nova Scotia. A major business hub, it’s also famous for its maritime legacy. The city is overshadowed by the Citadel, a star-shaped hillside fortress built in the 1850s. Halifax is the type of place people flock to for the lifestyle and livability it has to offer. Sea breezes keep the air clean, and parks and trees fill the spaces between historic buildings, cosmopolitan eateries and artsy boutiques. Several universities in town keep the bars and nightclubs full. The historic waterfront, live music scene and seaside water access make Halifax the great place it is today.
