Halifax, the provincial capital of Nova Scotia is a modern port city teeming with culture and heritage and another perfect place to begin an RV road trip around Atlantic Canada. On a peninsula that reaches into the North Atlantic, Halifax has the largest population East of Montreal.
The old city of Halifax is small and friendly, its neighbourhoods all within a long but manageable walk or short bus ride's distance of each other. It's a mixture of old and new, with restored old buildings juxtaposed with urban sprawl.
There's a real sense of community in this city, plus an impressive array of art galleries, museums, historic sites and churches, shopping, sidewalk cafés and friendly nightclubs. Rent an RV in Halifax and you can explore charming seaside towns, sun-drenched beaches, sparkling coves and miles of rugged shoreline guarded by elegant lighthouses. Nearby communities offer hiking, camping, and bird watching and of course, the ocean. Stroll the boardwalks and see ships from around the world, watch fishermen or sail or kayak among the many islands of the beautiful bays.
