Situated just a short ferry ride across the harbour from downtown Halifax, Dartmouth is home to many quaint cafes, noteworthy food outlets, and a charm all of 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 with walking trails and easy access that stretches out into the unspoiled coastal beauty of the Eastern Shore.

Visit the Dartmouth Waterfront to take a walk along the boardwalk, the ideal place for a photo of the Halifax skyline, and Georges and McNabs Islands. Visiting the waterfront on a Saturday morning? Be sure to visit the popular farmers' market at Alderney Landing.
