Halifax is the capital of Nova Scotia and one of the world's perfect ports of call for small ship cruises in Canada. With over 400 km of dramatic coastline, white sand beaches, and one of the world's largest natural harbours, its no wonder life here revolves around the sea. But there's so much more.

From city streets to lazy afternoons by the ocean, it's all here in the Halifax Regional Municipality.

Steeped in history, rich in culture, and refreshingly cosmopolitan. For over 250 years Halifax has been a world class place for business and pleasure. Premiere meeting and convention facilities. Fine dining. Great music. Fashionable boutiques. Whimsical craftshops. Cobblestone walkways.

The Halifax Regional Municipality is an international urban center with a rural cachet. It bustles and thrives with all the energy and amenities of a capital city but within minutes of the city's core, Halifax offers the small coastal villages, country charm, and wilderness for which Nova Scotia is known.

It's so beautiful you won't want to leave. Start your tour of Nova Scotia and Canada's Atlantic Coast with Halifax - Beautiful One Day... Perfect The Next.

A little known fact is that the bodies that were recovered from the sinking of the Titanic are buried in Halifax, with the majority at Fairview Cemetary. There even is a J. Dawson (James Dawson who was a 23 year old crew member) resting there. In the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, there are a few items on display that were recovered from the Titanic.
