We are all from different places, and some of you travel, so I thought I'd get some suggestions.

I will be in Halifax NS in two weeks. I will have one full day in there (arriving late in the evening and will have the entire next day free). I would like any suggestions of how to get the most out of my one day in Halifax.

After that, I will head north and spend the rest of the week in Berwick. I will have evenings free, and a car.

Any suggestions will be appreciated. I am not real big on museums, I prefer the natural sights, villages, restaurants, and people. Tourist places are fine, too; I'm not a snob in that regard.

Check out the Five Fishermen restaurant. When I was there they had a fantastic seafood buffet, and the place is supposed to be haunted.

Funny, my wife and I are planning a two week drive from the mid atlantic to Nova Scotia this July or August to spend some time exploring. If you have time, you might want to skip the food, where you can get anywhere in the world and check the tides at Burntcoat Head where the tides are the most active place on the planet. I'd think a few hours from Halifax if that, but you might want to check it out.

What if the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about? Smile

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

The Lord Nelson Hotel was a decent place to stay. Good location.

Take the bus tour to Peggy's Cove, or one of the other local bus tours. Several tour companies operate in the area.

E.g. http://www.grayline.com/things-to-do/canada/halifax/

(You can drive yourself, but with the tour you get a guide who can tell stories about the area and explain what you are seeing.)

Check out Bluenose II if it is in port (or is it dock?):

https://bluenose.novascotia.ca/

(A few years ago you could go out on it as it sailed, but maybe they've halted that.)

Do one of the hop on / hop off Halifax tours. I guess your hotel can give you details, or google for operators.

See Lunenburg, which is a UNESCO site. It is included in some of the bus tours I mentioned:

http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/741

Tour any of the local breweries in Halifax. Google them. I toured the Alexander Keith's exhibit / brewery.

Walk along the waterfront district on the dock / pier (see the boats and the shops and eateries etc.).
