Experience the Victorian age recreations of soldiers training in the courtyard - kilts and all! The Citadel also portrays soldier's wives and civilians in it's authentic recreations.

Enjoy the barren, rocky landscape of Peggy's Cove and visit the most photographed lighthouse in the world. You'll also be impressed with the awesome power and beauty of the ocean crashing and spraying over the rocks. Nova Scotia's Bay of Fundy is home to the world's highest tides - so watch out when enjoying the many beaches that cover 100's of kilometers of coast.

If you enjoy city life, than you'll love the quaint pubs, shops and the art shops of the historic properties in Halifax.
