Halifax Waterfront

Discover our historic port city of Halifax when you walk along the Halifax waterfront. Start at the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 – the gateway into Canada for one million immigrants – and then explore eclectic shops and galleries, some of the city’s best restaurants, and ships including the last of the WWII convoy escort corvettes. Discover the Halifax Seaport Farmers' Market, the oldest continuously operating farmers’ market in North America, and our seafaring history through exhibits at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic which include displays on the city’s link to the Titanic disaster.

End at the timber-frame & stone warehouses of Historic Properties, originally built to safeguard booty captured by legalized pirates called privateers, and grab a spot on the patio at The Lower Deck Pub or find a spot inside to take in live local music.
