No visit to Halifax is complete without a stroll along the waterfront. This area used to be the city’s commercial harbor. It has been transformed into attractions along the two mile Halifax Boardwalk. A good place to start if you just left the Nova Scotia Art Museum is the Historic Properties. This three-block area is filled with warehouses used by privateers during the War of 1812. Most have been converted into boutique shops and restaurants. The following nine photos show places of interest as you walk south until you reach the cruise ship terminal at Pavilion 22. If you are disembarking, you can follow this walking guide of the waterfront in reverse order.
