Three girls. Three provinces. Three hotels. Over four days.
I may be a New Brunswicker but when entertaining out-of-towners, my natural inclination is to take them to our neighboring provinces for a roaring East Coast good time. Sure New Brunswick has its perks — world’s largest tides and Magnetic Hill — which we totally took advantage of on the girl’s last day here, but let’s face it.
Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island is where it’s at for summer adventures.
On day one of our East Coast road trip, the girls and I headed off to Halifax, Nova Scotia. Having lived there for six years while attending Dal and with a deep, profound love of the city – I knew Halifax would no doubt impress the ladies.
Our first stop was a must when visiting the Halifax area – Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse.
What ensued was the ultimate lighthouse + ocean photo shoot. They don’t call Nova Scotia “Canada’s Ocean Playground” for nothing.
A combined five hundred+ photos later and our bellies full with a delicious lunch of fish n chips (and chicken fingers for Colleen) at the famous Sou’Wester Restaurant, we headed into the city to check in at our hotel (mad love for the Atlantica!) and venture downtown for an evening on Halifax’s historic waterfront.
From ferry rides to carnivals, yachts to street performers – a very memorable night was had on the water before we took it to the famous Economy Shoe Shop for some night caps: Sex and the City cocktails, of course.
Halifax – thank you for showing myself and the girls an amazing time.
