Have a fun day in the Spring Garden Area with a trip to a storybook café and a walk through the magical Halifax Public Gardens.
At the Rabbit Hole Café you’ll find brightly-coloured, creamy cakes that are the closest thing to an edible cartoon, and a range of teas, coffees and other drinks sure to please visitors of all ages.
Next, head to the magnificent Halifax Public Gardens for a walk through the traditional Victorian gardens. With fountains, a duck pond, and lots of benches to sit and relax, bring a book, a deck of cards or a cribbage board, or just sit and absorb the quiet.
Across from the Public Gardens, on South Park Street is the Dairy Bar, where you can get an ice cream to enjoy in the gardens or in Victoria Park across the street.
The Public Gardens are right in the heart of Halifax; just steps away, you can climb Citadel Hill for the views, wander the streets of historic downtown neighborhoods, or investigate the shops and restaurants of Spring Garden Road and its inviting side streets.
Bonus: The Bengal Lancers C stable is just up the street – if you’re lucky, you might get the chance to wave hello to the horses!
Book a night at the Lord Nelson Hotel & Suites, a grand hotel that has overlooked the Public Gardens for nearly a century.
