The boardwalk follows the water’s edge past historic sites, shops, restaurants, and attractions. You can easily spend a day exploring the Halifax Waterfront. The Immigration Museum and the Maritime Museum can be found along the boardwalk.

For a good look around the waterfront this takes in many establishments. From Halifax Glass to food and trinket shops a place not to miss in Halifax.
