With summer fast approaching and very little extra money in my pockets these days, i’m thinking that it could be fun to explore Halifax (please excuse the language and just enjoy) this summer. My family moved here from Cape Breton when I was 16, and since I graduated from High School I have been out of the area/country longer than I have been here. I have been to many, many places in the world. I have seen a lot of beautiful scenery and met some wonderful people..but nothing compares to Halifax. Here is my list of possible places to visit/things to do this summer. I figure every few days we’ll try to do something on the list.
Susie’s Shortbreads you had to know cupcakes would be my priority!
Metro Transit Ferry only $2.25 for adults
Walking everywhere downtown
Bedford Waterfront bonus..there is now a Starbucks across the road
Treehouse Cafe $2.26 for kids under 3, play as long as they like
Shubenacadie Wildlife Park a little ways out, but so worth the trip!
Justus Coffee shops and museum
Discovery Centre $8.50 for adults, free for kids 2 and under, $6 for kids 2-18
Rainbow Haven Beach
Halifax Public Gardens and possibly this while we’re there
The Cole Harbour Rural Heritage Farm
Bedford Institute of Oceanography
I would love to add to my list. What are your favorite things to do and see in the Halifax area, kid-friendly and not?
