Halifax : Michelin's recommendations
Situated on the east coast at about the mainland’s midpoint, the capital of Nova Scotia overlooks one of the finest harbours in the world. The deep outer inlet of the Atlantic Ocean narrows into a protected inner harbour called the Bedford Basin. Halifax is the largest city in the Atlantic provinces and the region’s commercial and financial heart. Nova Scotia’s administrative hub and an important centre for scientific research, Halifax is also a major seaport and serves as the Atlantic base of the Canadian navy.
