The city of Halifax is gorgeous to visit; and in lots of ways is the gateway to exploring Nova Scotia’s beautiful places. That being said, it’s also got a charm and history that’s totally worth spending a few days exploring. This is especially true with all the best things to do in Halifax that are easy to reach on foot.
Not only that, the city is a totally great base if you’re wanting to explore some of the eastern Nova Scotian shorelines on day trips, too. We loved popping over to the iconic Peggy’s Cove and driving down to the pretty town of Lunenburg.
Heck, we loved it all!
So, to help you get the most out of your time, I wanted to share some of the best things to do in Halifax once you arrive in Nova Scotia. Have the most amazing time exploring Atlantic Canada; it’s such a special region.
1.) Halifax Harbourfront
Strolling the harbourfront is easily one of the best things to do in Halifax once you first arrive in Nova Scotia. In my opinion, it allows you to get a ‘feel’ for the city and understand Halifax that bit more.
Plus, it’s totally gorgeous so you can’t really miss it.
On a sunny day, it’s so beautiful to just chill and stroll the front. Even though it doesn’t sound like the most ‘active’ plan, strolling the boardwalk is just great.
Once here, hop inside the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic and learn more about the naval history of the region. It’s totally interesting, even if you’re not the biggest seafarer.
Afterwards, pop by for a tipple at The Lower Deck and grab some seafood at Salty’s.
Fancy a little fun. but want a good tour of the Nova Scotian gem of Halifax? Then book these tickets for a Halifax segway tour. It’s such a fun way to see Halifax. Plus, you get a little lesson on driving your segway beforehand!

Honestly, it’s one of the best things to do in Halifax if you want a day trip from the city. Or, if you prefer, as part of a wider Nova Scotia road trip.
After arriving, via Prospect Road (333), park here and wander around the historic fishing village that looks like something out of the movies.
