You really can't miss the Citadel considering it takes up a big chunk of downtown Halifax. Lace up your sneakers and make the walk up the hill if you can, otherwise drive up. When you reach the top, it is a great view of Halifax. The interpreters are great and extremely friendly. Make sure you take a tour with the guide as it will give you more of a background of the Citadel. Tours are 40 minutes long. There is a tour that starts just before the cannon goes off at noon and ends with the firing of the cannon. Loved this tour!
