Downtown Halifax Walking Map

Downtown Halifax is the urban core of the region, home to the lively Halifax waterfront which boasts one of the longest waterfront boardwalks in the world! This iconic destination offers stunning harbour views and plenty of things to do, from beer gardens and playgrounds to farmers’ markets, museums and galleries.

North End Halifax Walking Map

Halifax’s North End is known for its diverse and multicultural neighborhoods, award-winning restaurants, local shopping, and thriving arts scene. Visitors will pick up on the relaxed, creative energy of the area, from the colourful saltbox houses alongside trendy craft breweries and cideries, to the historic landmarks and vibrant murals that form the backdrop of this dynamic community.

Downtown Dartmouth Walking Map

Downtown Dartmouth has become a vibrant community filled with one-of-a-kind shops and restaurants, cozy cafés, craft beer and cider, patios with incredible views of the Halifax Harbour, public art and murals, beautiful parks, picnic spots, a supervised beach, and so much more. Named one of Canada’s hippest neighbourhoods, this cool and quirky borough has something for everyone.

This laid-back coastal paradise is known for its spectacular ocean views, world-class surfing, and of course, Nova Scotia’s famous beaches.
