Experience Halifax

Halifax, Nova Scotia Halifax

Halifax is located on a peninsula in the south centre of the Nova Scotia province and is also its capital. Life in Halifax is generally relaxed and inviting, and what better way to immerse yourself in the stunning natural surroundings than with a car hire from DriveAway. For an opportunity to step back in time, the historic Halifax Citadel, located downtown was strategically built on a hilltop in 1749 as a fort to protect the city. Its amazing panoramic view of the harbour is just as impressive as the star-shaped architecture of the building.

Your car makes it easy to take day trips outside of Halifax, head north to visit Grouse Mountain or conquer your fear of heights on the Capilano Suspension Bridge. Fisherman’s Cove is just a 20-minute drive approximately from Halifax and is the perfect seaside getaway. Take a stroll along the boardwalk, spoil yourself with some shopping, then grab brunch at one of the many restaurants specialising in seafood.
