The Halifax Experience

Getting Here

It's easier to get to than you may think. Just over an hour from Toronto, Boston and New York and just over two hours from Washington, D.C. by air, Halifax's Stanfield International Airport offers direct flights from many destinations.

Airport information is available at: www.hiaa.ca

Things to Do

Halifax's downtown allows for easy access to attractions like the historic waterfront, the Saturday farmer's market, museums, shopping along Spring Garden Road, or restaurant patios scattered throughout the downtown - all within walking distance.

Things to do

And just 30 minutes from the city centre, you can experience more of what Nova Scotia has to offer. The beauty of Peggy's Cove, the fabulous white sandy beaches of the eastern shore or perhaps a winery tour in the lush Annapolis valley.

Things to do

Autumn is one of the best times to visit Halifax, with the fall colours and warm days; you may just want to make a trip out of it.

We hope to see you here!
