Peggy’s Cove & Halifax

6 reviews
Why not combine our two most popular tours into one? See the sights of the historic port city of Halifax and then take in the famous breathtaking sights of Peggy's Cove.<br><br>Our tour would commence from Pier 21 with its Historic block as the "Ellis Island" of Canada, where more than one million immigrants came through and more than 500,000 left from during WWII.<br><br>From there we will visit St. Paul's Church, the oldest Anglican church in Canada. As well, St. Paul's Church was among some of the buildings that withstood the Great Halifax Explosion of 1917. We will drive on to Fort Needham Hill where a memorial carillon was built for the victims of that explosion. Then we'll be on to Canada's most famous lighthouse.<br><br>Peggy's Cove is one of the most unique, captivating and exhilarating eye-openers in Nova Scotia. The quaint seaside hamlets of Shad Bay, Big Lake, East Dover and West Dover, to mention but a few, are also breathtaking.

I actually live in the neighbourhood so might be biased. If you’re a tourist to NS, this is not your typical tourist place but it would be a nice area to come to to buy some unique crafts or have a nice meal. It is a larger residential neighborhood but the retail area is rather limited. It really is both sides of Young St. from Gottingen to Agricola or perhaps Robie St.

Mighty Cool! wish it were a kilometre long! Great variety, and international dining, cafe, arts and crafts and on mild days it is lovely to sit outside. AND the history of this area is worth looking up....

Although the neighborhood is historic, and there is a lovely olive oil store worth browsing in, overall this area was a disappointment and a bit out of the way.

I was treated to a visit with my Halifax friends here today. Lovely shops and 30 minutes of free parking which is great to pick things up, but not to see much. Loved the heritage buildings.

Interesting historic part of the city. Well preserved buildings with an unusual architectural style. Today, the small area is full of pricey boutiques, cafes and neighborhood shops. I found the traditional hydrostone houses on the neighboring tree-lined streets to be more interesting. Unless you're shopping, a five-minute walk along the market street should be sufficient.
