Halifax Overview

The Capital city of 'Canada's Ocean Playground' and province of Nova Scotia, Halifax is the main port gateway for the Maritimes region. Halifax Regional Municipality has a population of 385,000 making it the largest city in Canada east of Quebec City.

Halifax Municipality consists of the regions Halifax, Bedford, Dartmouth, and Cole Harbour. It also extends all the way out to Hubbards and Spry Bay and beyond.

A fun fact about the city of Halifax is it has the most bars per capita of any city in Canada. Pub crawls are a tourist attraction, in their own right.

Halifax indeed has vibrant night life and it a great jump off point to see the south Atlantic shore.

The city boasts four Universities, including Dalhousie and Saint Mary's, and one well known art college the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (NSCAD).

And it is home to Theodore Tugboat!
