25 Seaside Escapes
By OUTTraveler Contributer
Halifax, Nova ScotiaSituated on one of the world?s largest natural harbors, Nova Scotia?s bustling capital packs a lot into its small footprint: dining, culture, nightlife, and easily accessible nature. Craggy cliffs and lighthouses recall New England; meadows and stone walls evoke rural Britain.
Off the beaten tourist path, it?s also an inexpensive honeymoon option. When the sun goes down and the summer?s eve kicks in, head for the North End, Halifax?s emerging gay village, stopping at Company House (2202 Gottingen St.; 902-404-3050) for live acoustic rock music and Menz (2182 Gottingen St.; 902-446-6969), a friendly watering hole despite its tragic name.
