Reviews of Halifax

KeaneSan Francisco, California, USA

Vibrant city with loads of history. Take the time to learn more about Halifax and you'll see it's significance in colonial North American history. The waterfront is also a lovely walk.

Halifax is a main city in Nova Scotia and entry point for people to move to Canada. Disability access is limited to what activities you wish to do. There is some major hilly streets with very little curb cuts. Disability was difficult to find. The city is a gateway to Peggy's cove and other sites along the coast.

Halifax is only a 30 minute drive from the rental property and the place to be. Whether you want a day to walk the waterfront and explore the stores or you want to go dancing at night this is your spot. Halifax has many malls, casinos, boat excursions and local vendors.
