Hi Diana,

Great to hear you're interested in visiting our beautiful province! Here's an article from travel writer and Halifax native Cailin O'Neil on 24 Hours in Halifax to get you going:

Travel writer Andy Hayes did a great summary of his trip to Nova Scotia last year including a piece on Halifax. You can read it here:

The folks at Destination Halifax are also very friendly and helpful, check out their site Lots of information on the city.

Hope that all helps to get you going. Let us know if we can be of anymore assistance.

You may also want to post your request on the Canada, rather than US, board. Good luck!

Hi there! Thx for the responses! Also, I posted on the Canadian side too!

It really would be helpful if you could elaborate on just what aspects of this trip you are having trouble with.

The transportation? Hotel? Rental car yes/no? What??????

BaltimoresDiana Apr 7th, 2011 06:58 AM

Wow Dukey1 you are very abrupt. No one else seemed to be havinh trouble resonding. But since you would like more information:
I advised that we are attending the Film Festival.
Hotel recommendations, things to do, place to see...
should we rent a car...retaurants...

If you feel the need to be rude please don't respond. It's totally unecessary.

Why did you tag those particular states???

kayd Apr 7th, 2011 07:58 AM

We know you are going to Halifax, but how long do you plan to be in NS and do you want to venture out to other areas of the province? This info would elicit more useful responses.

BaltimoresDiana Apr 7th, 2011 08:08 AM

Hi kayd - We will be in Halifax for seven days and would like to venture to other provinces.

kayd Apr 7th, 2011 08:13 AM

Will you stay in Halifax for 7 days, then venture out? If you have 3 or 4 more days, beautiful Cape Breton Island would be a great add-on. If you can only day-trip from Halifax during your week there, Peggy's Cove and the Lunenberg area are the obvious choices.

Dukey, I still love you :-) fwiw, I didn't find your post rude.

Happy trip planning, BaltimoresDiana! Would love to see Nova Scotia one of these days sooner than later.
