Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Our apartment is close to the small urban downtown of Dartmouth, with many new restaurants, craft breweries, and places to walk and sit. The nearby ferry (ten minutes walk away) to Halifax runs regularly all day and evening, making it easy to explore the Halifax waterfront and downtown, and its various craft brewery pubs and fine dining restaurants, interesting specialty shops, diverse art galleries and museums and a spectacular family friendly science centre. Both the MacDonald Bridge over to Halifax and local highways are close by, making it easy to reach the airport, and explore different parts of the region and Nova Scotia. Dartmouth and Halifax, and Nova Scotia is a land of beautiful lakes and rivers, beaches and ocean everywhere, interesting communities and friendly people, all waiting to be explored on foot, by bike, or by car.
