we thought the walk along the harbor boardwalk was beautiful - for FREE, no expensive excursion needed!

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.

Had a 2-pound mouth-watering lobster at Peggy's Cove.

Beautiful port. If you dont want to go on any excursions theres lots to do near the ship. Taxis and double decker buses right in front if pier. Walk from the ship along the water. Many shops and restaurants. Gorgeous views. We went to Maritime museum.
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.

So for Halifax, again I had rented a car. After a little snafu GETTING said car, we were off and on our way. We went out to Blue Rocks 68 miles west of Halifax, to start our adventure. We made our way back via Lunenburg, Mahone Bay and Peggy's Cove. All of it was fantastic, though Peggy's Cove was too crowded for our taste, but I AM glad we did stop and see it. Blue Rocks was gorgeous. A very sleepy fishing community and artist haven. Got some great pics out there and saw no others until we were leaving. Lunenburg, unknown to me, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. I can now understand why. It's another storybook like town with awesome architecture, a bustling little downtown, colorful Victorian era houses and buildings and was simply beautiful to take in. When we get back, I would like to spend more than a couple of hours there, but for what we saw, we loved it. Mahone Bay was again, just a beautiful little village. You can tell that the people take great pride in their community, it was simply spotless and beautiful. Peggy's Cove, as I said earlier, was just too crowded for us, and in the interest of time, we didn't stay too long, but glad we saw it. Next time we go back, we will spend some real time in Halifax. It had a great waterfront, was very walk-able, and there's a LOT to take in.
