If you only had one day in Halifax, how would you spend it?
I would first walk along the waterfront—visit Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, followed by the Halifax Seaport Farmers’ Market and the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21. Then visit Argyle Fine Art in the Historic Properties and enjoy a nice lunch at Dharma Sushi on Argyle street. After lunch, I would explore the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site and finish with dinner at La Frasca on Spring Garden road.
