Autumn is here! Kids are back in school, parents are back at work, and the world is back in balance. Though the days are getting shorter, there is still nature for exploring! Arguably, the best time to explore the forests, beaches, and hills of Nova Scotia, is now. Smaller crowds, warm-ish weather, and beautiful leaves all contribute to what can be a spectacular visit to a provincial park. We at AboutHalifax.com poured over 121 different provincial parks and found the 7 fit for a fall visit.
Well here it is. Without even knowing it, those humid summer nights have slowly changed into brisk fall evenings. That late afternoon sun now comes a bit sooner, signalling the changing of the seasons. As everyone around you begins to lament the departure of the summer months, it’s time to set your sights forward on everything that autumn offers.
In Nova Scotia, the fall brings its own adventures. Thankfully, we at About Halifax made a list of the top three activities you need to try over the next few months.
Summer time in Halifax and the livin’ is easy. Whether it is walking the waterfront, lounging on the Commons or having a drink at a beer garden, Halifax caters to all. When you are ready to escape the city, we’ve pulled seven beaches in the vicinity to Halifax to visit. Pack the cooler, slap on the ’screen and get in the car! It’s beach time.
With Halifax’s proximity to exposed and untouched wilderness, there is little surprise to the popularity of trail running. If you’re sick of the sidewalks or want steeper hills than Point Pleasant Park, trail running may be for you. We found five trails within the HRM to test your limits and your glutes!
It’s a Saturday morning in August and you need something to do. Instead of the usual Farmer’s Market stroll followed by drinking coffee on the waterfront, you decide to break out of your shell and try something new. On a whim, you rent a bike. But where should you go? With so many options and such little time, here are three options that will give you a taste of the local bike scene.
Directions to Hirtles Beach (above) can be found here.
People who live in a beautiful place like Nova Scotia take it for granted. With the natural beauty we can access and trendy lifestyle we can live, keeping a pulse on what’s trending Halifax is no small task. You might opt the path of least resistance, one which leads to Netflix binging on Saturday afternoon or merely sticking to a routine, both which help avoid the disappointment, wasted time, and down-right unfamiliarity that comes with trying something new.
