Eating Out
No question one of the best bowls of Ramen in this city, province, and quite possibly this part of the country. Their house made noodles are basically perfect and when floating in their carefully balanced broths, it is simply the most satisfying bowl in town.

Not your average Italian meal slinger. This hipster-compliant revival of classic Italian American marries uniquely American tradition with the conscientiousness of the local-sourced movement. Also doesn't hurt that they are literally around the corner.

Little Oak was awarded one of Canada's top 50 restaurants this year, and deservedly so. It is a small and intimate little dining room with one of the areas greatest culinary minds running the kitchen. Each dish we have had there is 'Chef's Table' worthy. Beautiful, balanced, complex, and exciting.

NOT a franchise english pub. This is the real deal. Great cask ales, classic and comforting english foods, a real life fire place, old stone walls. Easily the coziest pub or bar in town.

A lovely marriage of casual ambiance, and quite fine dining. Room is cozy and comfortable, and each dish is lovingly and carefully crafted. Do be warned, they dont take reservations, so it is a gamble if you can get a seat, but if you can, it is worth the roll of those dice.

deli
We have spent entirely too much money here.  This focuses on making the best charcuterie this side of the country.  They stock an impressive array of cheeses from Europe and Canada. We can personally loudly recommend the smoked salmon, the duck breast prosciutto (you read that right) and the Grison.

Sweet Treats
All other doughnuts are ruined for us. Fortune offers an, essentially, perfect doughnut. They are fluffy, succulent, just sweet enough, not too sweat, not too oily. Their toppings are fun, sometimes ridiculous, and always covered in candy. Chain doughtnut shops are on notice.

Neighbourhoods
A couple Kilometers of waterfrontage downtown that has been filled with boardwalk, shops, vendors, and plenty of historical architecture. An excellent place to people watch, to browse, and to stop for a bite or sip.

If you have been at all feeling confident about your gardening skills, then let me present to you the antidote to all of that. This is definitely Halifax's most brightly coloured spot with an impeccably curated assortment of plants, flowers and trees. You just can't be stressed while you visit here.

This would be Halifax's defacto public park. It is a handsomely large portion of the southern end of the Halifax peninsula that has been set aside for public park land. A veritable forrest in the middle of the city will a refreshing mix of WWII era battlements, and harbour views. Hours are well spent walking these ground.

This is a natural park built around these wild ocean cave formations that are formed due to the unique geography. Campgrounds. Cabins. Exploring the caves, heck, even swimming into the caves if your brave enough. One of Nova Scotias natural wonders.

This is THE postcard for Nova Scotia. Rugged and gorgeous rocky coast. Iconic lighthouse. Amazing view of the ocean. It attracts a crowd for good reason.

Need some winter activities to help celebrate winters offerings? The Oval is a recent addition to the cityscape. Originally built as a short-term speed skating rink for the Canada Games, the city was petitioned to make it a permanent fixture. And as such, the Oval was born. Bring your own skates, or rent skates for free. It is a lovely way to enjoy a nice winters day, and its SO close to the apartment.

Museum
This National Historic site is the location of Halifax's original defensive fort. Easy to see why, as it is perched on the highest hill in the area and offers commanding views of the harbour and surrounding land. Here you can walk around the old stone walls, and watch re-enacments of the changing of the guard. Also, the noon canon. They fire of canons at noon. Its intense.

Destination
Only 80 km out of town is our favourite part of the province. Farmers markets. Rolling vistas. So many vineyards. Small town charms, and honestly, such a relaxing drive there and back. Go apple picking, go wine sampling, get fresh produce from the farmers that cultivated it, its an excellent afternoon.
