So lucky to have been able to visit the Maritimes in Eastern Canada this year! Our first stop was Halifax, a pretty seaside city in the province of Nova Scotia. Here are some of the spots we visited.
Maritime Museum of the Atlantic
This is the first scene that greets you when you enter the museum.
There were only two exhibits here that were interesting for me because I’m not really into boats. One was about the sad stories of people from the Halifax explosion. Another was the Titanic exhibit. Here’s a look at the menus that the Titanic had for first, second, and third class passengers.
A highlight of this trip was our food tasting tour. We also did a Free Walking Tour by Cameron Mitchell. It’s a 1.5 hour tour and Cameron is nice and knowledgeable.

Freddies Fantastic Fishhouse
We had this for lunch on the first day and it was so good that we had to go back again before we left!
First time I had fried clams, and it was so fresh and sweet. The scallops were succulent. The best I’ve ever had!
The fish was tender. I still like the New York Fish n Chips in Manila’s Fish & Co. way better.
The second time around wasn’t as good though because it was near closing, so the food wasn’t fresh.
Truly enjoyed this trip and I always love being a tourist!
