What’s Your Pleasure?

The great outdoors? The Halifax region has 250 miles of coastline, expansive forested parks and nearby islands for camping, hiking, cycling, exploring or just enjoying the wonders of nature. And of course there’s the Atlantic Ocean and rivers for boating, rafting, surfing and whale-watching.

The hustle and bustle of city life? With more than 400,000 people, the urban area is the most populous on Canada’s Atlantic Coast. Downtown Halifax has local tasting tours for foodies and plenty of shopping centers, urban gardens and public squares.

Cultural attractions? Halifax has numerous performance venues, art galleries, historic sites, museums and a symphony orchestra. It is home to several professional sports teams and hosts world-renowned festivals and major sporting events.

Nightlife? Halifax has more pubs and clubs per capita than any city in Canada. It’s no surprise that Halifax always ranks near the top of “quality of life” lists for Canadian cities. In fact, the biggest “hardship” of living here may be finding enough time to do everything you want.
