We stayed on the Dartmouth side this time (husband originally from there) and were within walking distance to Alderney Landing (very handy!). The terminal is clean, (the prices to cross were also reasonable). The wait time was a very acceptable 10-15 minutes. There is a very nice park with play equipment for the kids so on the way back from... More

We visited here on two occasions and both on a Saturday when the farmer's market was on. Very busy with lots of interesting stalls. Well worth a mooch around. Nice to have a wander around on the front too. We caught the ferry across to Halifax and this was fantastic. The views across the harbour are stunning and at $2.50... More

The Saturday market is great, they have a Sunday market as well however I can't comment as I haven't been there on a Sunday. There is lots of variety and vendors helpful and outgoing. It is located in Dartmouth on the waterfront. The Mennonites are there in the summer and they have fabulous deserts and preserves. The Wooden Monkey restaurant... More

The ferry terminal is a great way to get to and from Dartmouth and Halifax's downtown area. The weekend farmer's market is great; the vendors are incredibly friendly. The building holds a great library, restaurant, theatre, liquor store. Nearby pubs and hotels as well. The little boardwalk is quite cute, but not as large as other boardwalks. You'd be better...
