The boardwalk with a host of shops, restaurants, entertainment venues, museums, cruises and tours via land or sea runs for approximately 10 city blocks from Pier 21 to Casino Nova Scotia. Make the Visitor Center your first stop to firm up your sightseeing schedule. Then check out the variety of street performers and small eateries sprinkled throughout the waterfront; be sure to sample a delicious treat from the Black Bear ice cream vendor near the center of the waterfront, or visit the Farmer's Market (near Pier 21) and sample a delicious natural smoothie from Mr Smooth, or a tantalizing plate from Stella's. Pier 21 is where one million immigrants first set foot on Canadian soil between 1928 and 1971; inside this building are numerous exhibits and is comparable to Ellis Island in the US. if time permits hop a ferry and visit Dartmouth across the Halifax Harbor (get a transfer, which is good for 90 minutes, and return on the same fare). There is so much to see and do that one can enjoy multiple visits to this area.
