With two days to spend in picturesque Halifax on Eastern Canada’s maritime coast, you’ll have time to enjoy the charming atmosphere of the city, learn about its naval history, spend some time in the great outdoors, and venture to nearby Peggy’s Cove. Here are some tips for how to best spend your 48 hours in Halifax.

Day 1: Morning

Start your day with a morning sightseeing tour of the city, both to get oriented and to learn more about its history. One of the most popular ways to get around is by Segway, zipping between the Waterfront, Public Gardens, Argyle Street, and Citadel National Historic Site. If you’d rather move at your own pace, opt for the hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus instead.

Day 1: Afternoon

Even though it’s located about an hour outside Halifax, Peggy’s Cove is a must-see if you’re in the area. Get a feel for life in the Canadian Maritimes as you tour the red and white lighthouse standing guard over St. Margaret’s Bay, or browse the boutiques and shops of the village. Some Halifax sightseeing tours include a visit to Peggy’s Cove.

Day 1: Night

After a day of exploration, treat yourself (and your tastebuds) to the taste of Halifax with dinner at one of the city’s many excellent restaurants. The Brewery Complex on Lower Water Street offers a range of options in what was once North America’s oldest brewery. Lobster is always a good option in these parts.

Day 2: Morning

Just because you’re short on time doesn’t mean you have to pass up the chance to explore the natural beauty of the Halifax area. This morning, hop in a kayak for a leisurely paddle at Long Lake Provincial Park, located just 10 minutes from downtown Halifax.

Day 2: Afternoon

Take this afternoon to pursue your own interests in the city. Get schooled in Nova Scotia’s naval history at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic; retrace the first steps of immigrants to Canada at the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21; do some shopping in the Spring Garden district; or make the hour-long drive north of Halifax for an afternoon of wine tasting in the scenic Annapolis Valley.

Day 2: Night

Finish off your trip with a relaxing cruise on Halifax Harbor. Opt for a romantic sunset sail with an onboard wine and cheese tasting, or sit down for dinner on a traditional paddlewheeler as you take in the sights to the sound of live music.
