Atlantic District welcomes you to Halifax, the historic city by
the sea. You’ll find so much to do, so much to see.
Halifax, home to over 300,000 residents, exudes culture and
history on every street corner, where buildings dating back to
1749 share waterfront vistas with modern glass office towers.
Explore unique areas and neighborhoods, like the fashionable
boutiques and whimsical craft shops that line the cobblestone
walkways of the Historic Properties, heritage buildings originally used to store privateer’s booty. The heart of the city is the
Halifax Harbour, the second largest natural harbour in the
world, and the boardwalk that winds along it is alive with
pedestrian and maritime traffic. The Spring Garden Road area
is a bustling shopping district where high-fashion clothiers
reside alongside one of the oldest formal Victorian gardens in
North America. With six-degree granting institutions, Halifax is
teeming with the youthful energy of students and of learning.
Halifax’s history is one that you can see and feel. Each day,
the ceremonial ‘noon gun’ goes off at the Halifax Citadel
National Historic Site, an 18th century fortress in the heart of
the downtown core. Another National Historic Site, Pier 21 –
Canada’s Immigration Museum, tells the personal stories of the
one million people who passed through the doors between
1928 and 1971. Step back in time with a tour of Alexander
Keith’s Brewery, the oldest working brewery in North America
where you’ll be treated to a mug or two of famous India pale ale
along with Nova Scotian songs and tales. Life here revolves
around the sea and our Maritime history is an essential part of
