2 or 3 hour flights within europe or asia are cheap
you can hop 2 countries for $50
i've even gotten flights for $25 which was cheaper than a train or bus !
here even toronto to montreal costs easily 4x that much
hey even a 15min flight arount toronto costs like $150

anyways for us canadians $258 to go to Halifax is sadly to say a good deal :(

Former Haligonian here. Most of the suggestions are good. I'd add in the Museum of Natural History -- it's pretty interactive, and while most natural history museums are the same, it's in a central location downtown. As for the other things...



- Casino NS -- I'd skip this place if you're into the table games. Too often you are waiting for a spot and the dealers generally aren't that great/friendly. Your clientele here typically are bored locals or tourists 45+. I realize casinos in Canada don't hold a candle to the ones in Vegas or Europe, but it's still bad by Canadian standards.


- Seafood -- Believe it or not, the seafood restaurants out here are typically overpriced, mediocre food, especially the ones on the waterfront (Murphy's, Waterfront Warehouse, Bluenose, Five Fisherman, Salty's are the ones I'm talking about). McKelvie's is good but it can be hit or miss on the service -- and sometimes they use frozen fish so you need to ask. Bicycle Thief has a decent seafood selection but can be noisy. Anyway, the better seafood dishes aren't at seafood restaurants.

- Day trips -- PEI is nice but it's definitely not a day trip, especially as it's $47 to cross the bridge (coming back). Lunenburg is nice, Peggy's Cove too. I'd skip Bay of Fundy and go to the Annapolis Valley, especially if you travel in the fall or into wine.


Anyway, it's a great deal, and it works for YHZ - YYZ too. Too bad I have to pass on this as I am going to two weddings in September.

We have never been to Halifax. Need help from those that live or have been there. Is this a great place to be a tourist? What can one do and see there in 5 days? How is the weather in mid to end October?
Thank you in advance.
Mid October is pretty good, though you can get unlucky with rain for sure. From Oct 11-19th is the Celtic Colours festival in Cape Breton, it's a bit of a drive but worth it if you've never been.

If you want to see some up and coming music there is the Halifax Pop Explosion from Oct 23-26, with very affordable ticket prices.

Same as with Phone company mobsters, Canadians are being robbed by avio companies as well...

For this monies you could fly over the Europe twice...
Did you fail geography? Do you know how big Europe is compared to Canada? Asking for a friend....

I'm looking to fly out to Halifax, spend a night or two there, then rent an RV and see PEI that way. I've never RVed before but found a pretty decent deal. Only concern now is I know RVs are not welcome in most cities and parking seems like a hassle. So you get this sweet RV you get to call home, but you can't leave it anywhere so it becomes a burden. Like, as far as I understand we can park up at campsites around Charlottetown like KOA for the night; great... but how do we get into Charlottetown for a visit? The campgrounds are too far to walk and the RV needs to stay there... really confused by that part of it all.

Great city, super walkable, only about 425,000 people. Most of the action is downtown or by the water. Lots of great shops and parks on Spring Garden Road. Peggy's cove is about 35 mins out of the city by car. Lots of beautiful, scenic coastline.

Honestly, find a big box store parking lot and you should be ok. A lot of people "say" that they're not as friendly to these any more. I ask you this: does a security guard making $12 an hour give a crap about some RV not making any noise or meth in a giant parking lot? the answer is NO.

In Halifax:
Cows ice cream on the waterfront (pei company)
Darrells burgers- fenwick st
Henry house - pub food. Barrington st.
Doughnuts - Vandals and Fortune, a block apart in the North end

The Seaport farmers market is pretty mediocre. Local food at above retail cost. Could just visit Pete's to pay high end for local any day of the week, and they have better smoothies

PEI it's pretty easy. You can't go wrong with anything owned by the Murphy's. Richard's in Brackley is excellent for lobster rolls.

Halifax is a bit tougher. I'd still go to Bicycle Thief unless you want something romantic. Bar Kismet is supposedly excellent -- I haven't eaten there myself.
