People: The lads and lasses of Nova Scotia's capital are a lively bunch who do their part supporting North America's highest per capita concentration of pubs, bars and live music venues. So, after a few pints of Keith's, locals will at least seem extra sexy.
Places: Halifax is filled with verdant parks and lined with lovely beaches — no matter where you are in town you're never far from the sea. At the centre of it all is Citadel Hill, which yields great views of the harbour and city.
Things: The Halifax Citadel National Historic Site sits atop Citadel Hill, offering tours and 18th century military re-enactments. Down in the town, the pleasant Granville Mall pedestrian strip is home to a bevy of pubs and boutiques.
