The Area

Situated just a short ferry ride across Halifax Harbour from downtown Halifax, Dartmouth is home to many quaint cafes, noteworthy food joints, shops, and a charm all its own!

Dartmouth, also known as the City of Lakes, boasts 23 lakes that provide opportunities for kayaking, windsurfing, canoeing, and swimming. Paddle on Lake Banook or visit one of the many parks and walking trails that stretch out into the unspoiled coastal beauty of the Eastern Shore. Enjoy the Dartmouth Waterfront and walk along the boardwalk, the ideal place for a photo of the Halifax skyline or take a boat tour from nearby Fisherman’s Cove in Eastern Passage to McNabs Islands. And if Farmer’s Markets are more your speed, be sure to visit the market at Alderney Landing every Saturday!
