Canada Tops Lonely Planet's List for Best in Travel 2017

From East to West, Canada seems to have it all. With dynamic cities, pristine national parks and a mixture or vibrant cultures, the world's second-largest country will be ushering in its 150th anniversary in 2017. What better place to celebrate Canada Day than in Halifax, Nova Scotia? Located on Halifax's famed boardwalk, The Westin Nova Scotian offers seaside views of the Halifax Harbour and is only steps away from downtown.


Last year Halifax was named as one of the Best Places to Watch Canada Day Fireworks in the country! Every year Halifax-Dartmouth dedicates an entire weekend of free to low-cost activities to celebrate the country's national holiday. Events range from family friendly activities, cannon blasts on Citadel Hill, and a free concert featuring some the nation's best bands.
