Saint Mary's Cathedral Basilica

The second church constructed on this piece of land, Saint Mary's Cathedral Basilica was built in 1820, and its Gothic Revival façade invites a close look. Attend services or simply stop by for a visit, the oldest Roman Catholic Church in Canada still celebrates daily mass. The church is quite fascinating to look at from the outside with a pure granite façade, and inside you will find a museum where you can learn about Saint Mary's grand history. The church has been given the designation of a National Heritage Site by the Canadian government and there is a tour guide on site to take you through it.

Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21

Pier 21 was one of the most important ports for immigration in Canada and welcomed more than one million refugees between 1928 and 1971, comparable to Ellis Island on the US East Coast. The Canadian Museum of Immigration was built in 1999 to tell the story of this mass immigration and provide access to the only ocean immigration shed still standing in Canada. As part of the National Museums of Canada, it is the only museum in the country dedicated solely to immigration. Its exhibits are such that they appeal even to children and acquaint them with a major historical phenomenon that occurred over decades. Learn more about the Canadian role in World War II, delve into the desperate stories and dreams of the brides and children who sought refuge in Halifax and purchase a souvenir at the gift shop as a remembrance of your visit. Temporary exhibits and projects such as Digital Storytelling and Culture Trunks give visitors a fun and holistic learning experience.

Halifax Citadel National Historic Site

The Halifax Citadel is one of the most popular attractions in Canada. The citadel that stands today on the aptly named Citadel Hill is actually the fourth fort to sit on the site. The first citadel on the site was constructed in 1749, although it was not in the form of the citadel we see today. The current star-shaped fort was built in 1856 and took 28 years to complete. In its history, the citadel never suffered an attack and many of the original 1856 features are still preserved today. A visit to the Army Museum includes watching 'The Tides of History', and experiencing the day-to-day life of a soldier or his wife in the mid-Victorian era. Concerts are sometimes organized at the garrison grounds here.

Fisherman's Cove

In Eastern Passage there is a village that you must see. Restored to its original look and feel, Fisherman's Cove is a place where residents still fish for lobster. Wander the boardwalk and explore the little shops for some local art and crafts. Have lunch at one of the smaller take-outs or indulge in a larger meal at Boondocks Dining Room and Lounge. As the sun comes down, Fisherman's Cove becomes a perfect spot to enjoy a cold beer while you take in the beautifully painted evening sky.
