Caravan Sonnet: Halifax Citadel // Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

Halifax Citadel // Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

Happy Monday friends! I hope that y'all had a wonderful weekend! 
Today I am so excited to continue to share more about my recent trip through New EnglandNew BrunswickPrince Edward Island, and Nova Scotia! I shared last week about our stunning drive throughout Nova Scotia and how we stopped at various places along the way. For those who may be planning a similar trip I created this map below for a reference guide:
From Pictou (where we disembarked from the ferry) to Halifax, our first stop in Nova Scotia, it took about 2 hours and the drive was absolutely gorgeous. When we arrived in Halifax we decided since we only had a short time that we would drive around the city and just experience it that way. We tried (unsuccessfully) to get our passports stamped (a story for another time!) and afterwards we looked up and saw this beautiful clock (in the pictures above). We decided to climb up to it and see if we could see more of the city this way. 
When we got to the top we saw that there were more stairs that led to one of the highest points in the city, so we climbed up the steep hill. It was absolutely gorgeous and we were so glad we did it! 
It was absolutely gorgeous and you could literally see the ENTIRE city! Definitely worth it y'all!! As we were about to head back down to our car we turned around and noticed an entrance to the Citadel. 
I said to Ali that I would love to go in and see a bit of the history of this area and she agreed! (By the way- Ali was an amazing travel partner- seriously AMAZING! So blessed by her friendship!!) So we headed over to find out how much it cost to get in and were delighted to find out that it was part of the 150 Canada celebration so it was free! 
We spent about an hour exploring the citadel, learning more about this area of Nova Scotia and enjoying the views of the city. 
It was a brief, but wonderful time in Halifax and I would definitely recommend it. I would love to go back someday! If you are planning a similar trip and would like, you can read all of the posts from the trip by clicking on the links below:
