I’m really excited to interview Nina Clapperton of Nina Out and About about Halifax, Canada. Nina’s tips for the best things to do in Halifax are awesome because she moved to Halifax for university and stayed for four years until she left to live the digital nomad lifestyle. She loves the small-town feel, even though Halifax is one of the largest cities in the Maritimes.
We share a lot of resources and local suggestions in today’s podcast, but you should also check out Discover Halifax, the local visitor’s bureau. They are a wealth of information and can help you plan an itinerary based on your time, budget, and interests.
