Although Montreal is a wonderful city, I love having my time in Halifax. I live in Montreal; and I am back from a three week vacation in Halifax. It’s not like I don’t love Montreal, but, 3 weeks in Halifax means doing a lot many things and simply taking it easy. Halifax’s weather is also classified as humid continental like that of the Montreal weather. The summers are humid, but life is much more fun in Halifax as it revolves around the sea.
So, if you’re planning to take a trip to Halifax, let me tell you, it’s going to be fun. Rich in culture and history, Halifax is best enjoyed on foot. Simply park your car, and walk into any museum, bar or restaurant to make the most of your time there. There’s breathtaking beauty and exciting events happening at every corner of the city. All you need to do is explore them as you walk around.
