Halifax (Nova Scotia)
Halifax is Atlantic Canada?s center of business, research and education. Strong emphasis is placed on cultural diversity, historic restorations and the preservation of heritage and culture. The Halifax Citadel Fortress dominates downtown Halifax. Take a stroll along the waterfront past restored buildings and warehouses of Historic Properties, or a walk in delightful Public Gardens, the oldest Victorian gardens in North America. Halifax?s sister city of Dartmouth lies on the opposite shore and is reached via the oldest saltwater ferry in North America. The spectacular view of Halifax harbor makes the trip worthwhile. Housed in former Dominion Building, the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia features Nova Scotia folk art and maritime artists. A two-hour walk will easily show you the major highlights of historic and scenic Halifax. Visit Historic Properties, St. Paul?s Church and Province House, the latter two being the oldest buildings in the city. Granite Springs is rated one of the finest 18-hole golf courses in Atlantic Canada.
Digby, the most romantic place in Canada, is also home to the world?s largest inshore scallop fleets. Water Street is lined with many wonderful shops and restaurants and offers spectacular view of Annapolis Basin and the famous Scallop Fleet. In August, be sure not to miss Digby Scallop Days ? when the town celebrates its way of life and dependence on the sea with an amazing festival. Stop in the Admiral Digby Museum to learn about town history. Other popular attractions are the Trinity Anglican Church, built in 1785 and the only church in Canada to be built by shipwrights. There is also the Old Loyalist Cemetery, the Fisherman?s Memorial and the Soldier?s Cenotaph, a monument constructed in 1921 to honor those who died serving Canada during World War I, II and the Korean War. Two places perfect for gazing out at sea are the Admiral?s Walk/Loyalist Park and Point Prim Lighthouse. The lighthouse, one of the first in Nova Scotia, is set high on cliffs overlooking the mighty Bay of Fundy.
Prince Edward Island
Canada?s smallest province is known as the "Cradle of Confederation." Charlottetown is the island?s capital and one of Canada?s oldest towns. The old part of town offers many historical monuments, including important government buildings, churches, old mansions and museums, along with parks and gardens. Outside of Charlottetown, discover miles of farmland, small villages, a scenic coast, and the legacy of Lucy Maud Montgomery, author of Anne of Green Gables, the feature of Charlottetown?s annual major theater festival. Victoria Row Officially called Richmond Street, this area between Queen Street and Great George Street is lined with wonderful brick buildings from the 1880s. Known as Fanningbank, Government House is designed in Palladian fashion. Located in the historic setting of the harbor, Peake's Wharf offers a special collection of casual dining and shopping experiences. Crowbush Cove Golf Course, opened in 1994, was named Canada?s best new course by Golf Digest.
