Central Zone: Halifax, Eastern Shore, and Windsor-West Hants

From the modern yet historic city of Halifax, to the rugged and wild Eastern Shore, this region of Nova Scotia is a compelling study of contrasts. The largest city east of Montreal, Halifax is the cosmopolitan centre, bursting with restaurants, shopping, entertainment, and nightlife. But just a short drive (or bike ride) out of the city, the allure of nature envelopes you. Imagine dinner and the theatre at night, surfing and hiking the next morning.
