As you travel along the winding coastal highway of the Lighthouse Route to the tiny fishing village of Peggy's Cove, this little wonder has been an inspiration for artists and an irresistible lure for budding and seasoned adventurers for generation after generation. The colourful houses and fishing shacks perched atop the solid stone rocky outcrop that overlooks the restless waters of the Atlantic exhibit the wear and tear of the ocean and its punishing storms.
Upon check out of your hotel, your package ends, however, you may choose to do last minute exploring before departing Halifax. You could take the time to walk along the Harbour Front, discover the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 or maybe discover Halifax's oldest brewery on an Alexander Keith's brewery tour.
