Nova Scotia's capital enjoys a rich history, thanks in large part to its extremely strategic location on one of the world's largest natural harbors. Overlooked by the city's famous Halifax Citadel, this small maritime community is full of exciting entertainment opportunities for music and sports lovers alike.
Music fans staying in Halifax will want to check out the offerings at Scotiabank Centre, which often hosts major touring acts. Unsurprisingly, Halifax concert tickets typically sell out fast. Casino Nova Scotia is another popular spot for touring musicians. Other top venues for live music include The Seahorse Tavern, Company House and the Marquee Club. If your tastes are finer, head to the Dalhousie Arts Centre's Rebecca Cohn Auditorium to enjoy a performance by Symphony Nova Scotia.
Sports fans will enjoy the chance to see the Halifax Mooseheads take the ice at Scotiabank Centre. This Quebec Major Junior Hockey League team is said to provide fans all the energy and excitement of an NHL game, but at cheaper ticket prices (which never hurts). If hockey isn't really your thing, perhaps basketball is. Another great team to check out is the Halifax Hurricanes of the National Basketball League of Canada.
