While Eric was attending sessions at the genetics conference, I spent my mornings walking around downtown Halifax, both enjoying the weather and figuring out where some good restaurants were.
I walked along the harbor every morning, and the second day provided me with a clear and sunny view.

One of the highlights was the public gardens—a square block of statues, flowers, and manicured lawns in central Halifax. It’s a relatively quiet escape from the heavy traffic (both foot and car) of Spring Garden Street. The only unusual thing was a sign clearly stating that jogging was not allowed in the park.
Eric had a little extra time one afternoon, so we walked over to the citadel to explore the grounds. We arrived in time to see the changing of the guards, but didn’t feel like shelling out over $22 for both of us to see the interior of the fort.
A person could definitely see the downtown area of Halifax in just one or two days.
