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.

Not much to do here unless you are a student. There's a pub, places to eat, and the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium. It is a nice campus to walk around and take pictures. The most scenic is the quadrangle at the A&A Building. Take a stroll a few minutes away to the University of King's College quad. These are the traditional building with the climbing vines. But there are also many new, modern buildings that are nice.

is a nice quiet place to relax, open court-yard type area before you enter the main library allows you to grab coffee/tea snacks tables nearby to sit and work in groups with classmates or just sit and enjoy food/drink. the skylights/glass sections of the ceiling make it so nice on a cold day (like a loud-ish greenhouse) miss all the waterworks that use to flow through here but they turned it all off.

We just drove through the campus, but the buildings were poorly marked and maps were scarce. Very difficult to identify which building was what.
