Default greetings from Halifax

Hi everyone. I am a fellow cruiser who just happens to live in Halifax. Yes we have survived hurricane Juan and we are back to welcoming any cruisers who happen upon our great city. We have some trees down but our spirits are still up. Most everyone has their power restored now and we look forward to a great tourist season this fall. So welcome to all who come to visit. Just for interests sake I will be going on another cruise myself in Nov. and hubby and I are off to the Carribean. Happy cruising. If anyone has any questions re Halifax just feel free to email me. Sharon

Does it make any sense to visit the Public Gardens? Last time I was there they were so nice, not sure how they look now after Juan

We are planning on visiting Halifax and Nova Scotia in July for my in-laws 40th wedding anniversary and our 10th. Tell me what we could not live without seeing and keep in mind we have small children in tow from 3-10. Also after being on 6 caribean cruises I would like to know what the weather may be like at the end of July.

Is the downtown area far away from the Cruise docking area? I might want to visit the natural museum and then try to find some seafood lunch.

Hey, sdolliver, we too are from Halifax and cruising Western Caribbean Nov 27. When are you going?

SKian, fyi: you will be docked in the downtown area and can follow the boardwalk around the harbour where there's lots of great food and great shopping. There's also the Martime Museum of the Atlantic which is interesting -- it has a section on the Titanic. There's also the natural museum which is a little further away but easily accessible.
