One of the things that I can’t stand about being in the dating world, is how expensive it can get. Particularly if you’re like me, and you happen to go on a lot of first dates. My policy is always that I’ll at least offer to pay for the date, particularly on the first go-around. Maybe it’s old-fashioned, but it’s just the way I was raised. That’s why I was pumped when I came across this list of 10 Places in Halifax that you can go for free! Here are a few of the best…
1) Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame – The Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame is located in the ScotiaBank Center at 1800 Argyle Street. (Formerly the Metro Center). This non-profit organization officially opened in 1964 and holds more than 7000 artifacts and photographs. Unique artifacts include an 1870’s penny-farthing bicycle and a 19th century wooden cricket bat. Unfortunately, the NS Sport Hall of Fame is currently closed for renovations. Check their website for updates.
2) York Redoubt National Historic Site of Canada – York Redoubt is located off Purcells Cove Road, about a 20 minute drive from Halifax. This 200-year-old fortification was originally built in 1793. The batteries were strengthened, over the years, to create an impressive fort, high on a hill, overlooking the Halifax Harbour. You can wander among the fortifications and enjoy incredible views at this free National Historic Site.
3) Emera Oval – The Emera Oval on the Halifax North Common is a great choice if you’re looking for a free family activity. Not only is your entrance free, but they also offer free ice skate, roller skate and helmet rentals in both summer and winter. Keep an eye out for other free events, such as concerts, throughout the year. Check their schedule here!
So regardless of your financial status, you can get out and enjoy the fine things Halifax has to offer!
