If you're a beer lover, be sure to check out the Alexander Keith's Brewery. Founded by its Scottish namesake in 1820, the brewery is open for tours where you can hear about the history through music and re-enactments from actors dressed in period attire. The story of the brewery is made that much more interesting considering Keith served as Mayor of Halifax for two terms.
For those interested in the tragic story of the Titanic, or more likely the movie by the same name, a visit to the Fairview Lawn Cemetery might be in order. The cemetery was the final resting place for 121 of the victims from the 1912 sinking of the ship, many of whom were unidentified. However, among the gravestones with names, you'll find one marked J. Dawson – coincidence?
Finally, the Halifax Waterfront is truly an unmissable experience. With boat tours, the longest-running Farmer's Market in North America, museums and festivals, the beautiful waterfront truly has something for everyone.
