Carpark is only tiny so people park down the side of the road, which makes for quite a trek sometimes!
Halifax Central Library Halifax 10.1 mi away
#9 of 287 things to do in Halifax
The views from almost anywhere in the library by a window are amazing - the harbor, Citadel Hill, Spring Garden Road - you can see most of peninsular Halifax along with Dartmouth across the harbor.
It has everything a library should have: books, magazines, newspapers and periodicals, obviously, but has serene reading/meditation spaces, a coffee shop, underground parking, and performance venues.

Located in the heart of downtown Halifax, the Public Gardens is an oasis of quiet walkways, beautiful flowerbeds and flowering shrubs, majestic deciduous trees, and a shimmering pond with scores of ducks and geese.
It's so incredible to walk through there's so much to see! From the pond with the miniature boats and the ducks, to all the beautiful flowers & trees throughout, there's a spot with cacti and succulents, big beaut...

We had grandkids visiting from Ontario and went to the beach there .We also rented canoes and enjoyed a wonderful scenic paddle through the beautiful wooded area.
I suggest you take some bird seed with you, some will eat right out of your hand, and the squirrels and chipmunks are always looking for a treat as well.

Also, Halifax was the city that rescued Titanic passengers after the sinking, and the Titanic exhibit, with its rich history, gave us so much more knowledge of the event.
As the base of the British North American squadron and later of the Royal Canadian navy, Halifax has much nautical history to remember.

Shearwater Aviation Museum Dartmouth 7.5 mi away
#3 of 49 things to do in Dartmouth
I must confess to having flown a couple of “vintage” aircraft types on display, those being the CT-114 Tutor Jet on which I instructed at the Big 2 (Moose Jaw) back in the day and more latterly, the famous Sea King.
I highly recommend it as a great place for war buffs and history buffs and those into planes and ships.
The Emigrant Statue Halifax 9.7 mi away
#32 of 287 things to do in Halifax
If you stroll at all along the Halifax Waterfront Boardwalk, you will come across "The Emigrant Statue", close to the Halifax Seaport Farmers Market.
This riverside statue adjacent to the immigration museum captures the hopes and dreams of new arrivals in a very tasteful manner.
Art Gallery of Nova Scotia Halifax 9.9 mi away
#31 of 287 things to do in Halifax
Its collections of Canadian art, particularly that of a local primitive artist, Maud Lewis, but also its historic and contemporary First Nation art and later works, is extensive and visually engaging.
Wonderful docent who knew so much about much loved Maud Lewis and the home and paintings.

Garrison Brewing Co. Halifax 9.7 mi away
#40 of 287 things to do in Halifax
Best of all, you can (a) bring in food from the local farmers market just next door and (b) bring your dog in case he is feeling the need for a little light refreshment.
They are reasonably priced for their brews if you want to get growlers or pints but I must say the souvenirs were a bit pricey.

I always like to stock up on some fresh meat (Bacon, Smoked Pork Chops and a few other treats) There is a great variety of fresh herbs all year long and some of the baked goods are to die for.
In addition to wines, chocolates, olive oils and healthy dog treats to only name a few of the purchases made, the food vendors selling yummy dishes was fabulous.
