Halifax Real Estate: Location and Description

Located in south central Nova Scotia on one of the world's largest deepwater, ice-free harbours, Halifax is Nova Scotia's commercial, educational, and political capital.

Halifax owes its very existence to the harbour. A chief British military base in the seventeen and eighteen hundreds and a vital naval supply link for the Allied effort in World War II, Halifax earned the nickname "Warden of the North". Even today the harbour plays an important role, as modern-day frigates, container ships, cruise liners and fishing boats ply its busy waters.

The Citadel, a restored 1828 British fortress, is the city's focal point, rising above the downtown on a large hill overlooking the harbour. Cobblestone streets and restored warehouses that date back to the 1700s make up Historic Properties, a picturesque cultural and entertainment district on the waterfront. For much of the summer a wharf at Historic Properties berths the Bluenose 2, a replica of the famous Nova Scotia racing schooner depicted on the Canadian dime.
