This is a long stretch of Harbour and stretches along the entire front including pop up stalls, and a water floating bridge. We had a lovely time walking this stretch and choosing among the lovely restaurants with brilliant names like "The Bicycle Thief"
Parking is minimal, parking at pay lots best option. Atmosphere at the board walk in the evening was a happ atmosphere and warm relaxing, with music and benches to sit and enjoy the sunset and sea air.
By all means, my best tip is to read the book: BAROMETER RISING by High MacLennan....classic, written in 1947 I believe, but it gave the history of the Halifax explosion of 1917--something you must understand before visiting.
Just take a stroll late afternoon/early evening. A look round the shops and Cafes (but leave room for dinner). I've reviewed a really good pub called Press Gang. (Worth a read and/or a visit, even if it's a bit uphill from the waterfront).
