The cobbled streets, 17th century houses; the walled clifftop location above the St Lawrence River and conversations taking place in French all around you: you may start to wonder which continent you’re on. With typically Gallic flair, the predominantly Francophone locals have created a year-round carnival atmosphere, with street performers, festivals and exhibitions. Nova Scotia’s seaside capital, Halifax has the youthful vibe of a university town and the culture and heritage of a 250 year old community, rich with museums and galleries and hundreds of excellent places to dine.
