    Annapolis Royal Historic Gardens

    Beautifully presented and peaceful, we took a great walk around here. There was a woman playing the flute while we were there, so it was good to have some music as we explored.

    Not only are there spectacular views of Halifax and a noon cannon fire, but a fantastic museum and wonderful hosts. We thought it would be fun to try the "soldier for a day" experience, and it was awesome! We went back in time and were dressed in authentic uniform before doing foot drills and learning to shoot the original rifles. We took a tour around the Citadel rooms and tunnels - it was truly amazing pretending to be back in the 1800s and receiving our "pay" of a Queen;s shilling.

    Beautifully restored, this ship is full of interesting WWII history. Watch out for mannequins around every corner, they will give you a fright and you will apologize if you bump into them because you think you've bumped into a person. Check out the difference between the living quarters of the soldiers versus the captain!

    The public gardens in the centre of Halifax are a beautiful, quiet oasis. Everything is clean and tidy, including the rest rooms. The roses are incredible

    Port-Royal National Historic Site

    This was an interesting learning experience to see and feel the history of the late 17th century and hoe the Arcadians lived. The reconstructed fortress was furnished well and all the guides were dressed in period costumes.

    Pearle's in Paradise

    Though a bit out of the way, we stopped by here for an ice cream on the way to the Valley. The servings are both generous and delicious! The restaurant is quaint and friendly, inside and outside dining available.

    We wandered in here after exploring the historic gardens. Heidi and Dieter were wonderful hosts, we even got a strudel demonstration while we enjoyed an afternoon tea of danishes and shortbread.

    Oh man, don't come here if you're on a diet! This is truly cheesecake heaven. We did come back a few times for dessert, all the cheesecakes we tried were deliciously delectable without being too rich. Kit Kat, black forest, lemon/lime, Boston cream... mmmm

    A delicious and cute Italian restaurant in the middle of Halifax. For $39 you can get an appetizer, entree and dessert, which is great value as well as being tasty. The husband and wife that run it are really sweet and are dedicated to providing quality meals.

    We stopped here for lunch while exploring the area, and were so pleased by it we came back for dinner and enjoyed some live music as well. Very friendly staff and delicious food.
