What to eatLobster rolls, fish cakes, oysters, chowder, fish and chips, hodge podge (a Nova Scotian classic vegetable dish) and the seaside city’s beloved donairs.
What to bring backCoastal, culinary must-haves from the Halifax Seaport Market (from Laughing Whale coffee to Nova Scotia Tidal Salt), apparel from East Coast Lifestyle and local arts and crafts from shops like Kept, the Independent Mercantile Co. and the Made in the Maritimes Artisan Boutique.
Fun FactPerhaps due to its six universities, Halifax harbours more bars per capita than any other Canadian city—so many spots to toast to a pirate past (the city was a major pirate hideout before being settled by Europeans) and reminisce on the nearby sinking of the Titanic (there’s a Titanic Museum inside the Marimite Museum of the Atlantic).
