Halifax was another good walking city. It's a pretty big and busy place. They have a nice walkway/boardwalk on the shore. There is also a good walking tour through the English gardens and over to the Citadel (self guided). It's not very far but hilly. Plenty of opportunity to walk that ship food off:) Shopping was best at the ship terminal. Got our syrup at the market just before the terminal. It was about $3-$4 cheaper for the same thing.

Very nice port. We did the lighthouse and lobsters tour, about an hour on an old double tier flatboat and another hour eating a whole Maine Lobster at Murphy's Restaurant. After that the three of us hiked to the very beautiful public gardens before returning to the ship. Very nice day.

Sunny day. Lots of Vendors in Port Terminal Bldg. Bought souvenirs there. Go to Info Desk in Pier 22 & get a free map. Clerk showed us easy walking path along Harbor Walk.15 min walk to Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. Give yourself at least 2 hours for museum. We had to cut it short because we had to get back to meet tour. Our tour went to Fairview Lawn Cemetery, Public Gardens and The Citadel. Florence was great guide & tour was well worth cost.

Did the hop on/hop off Grayline tour excursion and learned a lot about Halifax. The explosion 100 years ago that destroyed most of the city and over 2,000 people, visited the graves of over 100 victims of the Titanic and how White Star Lines had offices in Nova Scotia. The tour guides for Grayline were great. Learned a lot I did not know about Halifax. Such beautiful weather while we were there too.

The citidel was really amazing. Peggy's cove was beautiful, I would like to go back there. The titanic cemetary was cool. We just felt rushed again on this excursion. We only had like 20 minutes at Pegg's cove our tour guide was very good on this tour also.

I have to say, Halifax, was my favorite port. Also, full of history and the place where the survivors of the Titanic were taken. There was Titanic cemetery, which we did not get to visit. The pier was nice to walk with many shops, including an ice cream shop! We ate lunch at McKelvie's where the food was delicious and our waitress, Emily, was so upbeat and nice! Just a wonderful port to visit.
