Sept 7-12, 2014 staying at the Delta Halifax

Hi, looking for some suggestions of what to do for these dates. My husband will be in meetings all day so I will left to do what I want all these days. We are staying at the Delta Halifax. Any help would be great! I have never been to Halifax before so it is all a new adventure for me!

There are lots of things to do in Halifax. At the top of this page you can click on the Things to Do link.

You can walk the waterfront, go to museums (Maritime Museum, Canadian Museum of Immigration, Natural History Museum, museums at Citadel Hill, etc.) visit the Public Gardens, take the Harbour Hopper tour, take the ferry to Dartmouth, go to Peggy's Cove, visit the Art Gallery, and much more.

Here are some more links and ideas:

Great suggestions above, I agree with them all. I would also recommend a spa day at the Interlude spa. They have a location at the Marriott hotel right on the waterfront by historic properties. I often do that when I'm in Halifax for vacation.

You could also do some shopping on Spring Garden road. Or go for a walk through the Halifax commons and then walk up Quinpool Road and treat yourself to a slice of cheesecake at Sweet Hereafter and a nice cup of tea.

You could also book a day trip to the Annapolis Valley or Peggy's Cove with a tour company. Check out Go North Tours for an example of options www.gonorthtours.com

Or how about a guided Halifax food tour? http://localtastingtours.com/
