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.
