Cruise to Halifax

Cruising to Halifax, Nova Scotia makes complete sense — this is the ultimate maritime destination, where the ocean's natural beauty and man's attempt to tame it come alive. History buffs will not want to miss the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site, or the Canadian Museum of Immigration. Outdoors you can enjoy an afternoon sailing Halifax's harbor aboard a tall ship or relax by the waterfront and breathe in the sea air. (Or enjoy that same sea air at an outdoor pub, beer in hand.) Shopping reigns on Spring Garden Rd, while Halifax's formal Victorian-style Public Gardens will delight green thumbs. Hungry? Order the seafood — it's some of the best in the world.
