One great way to save on local fun things to do in Halifax is to peruse Groupon, the money-saving website that features local discounts in 150 cities. Visit the Halifax Groupon page and you’ll find coupon-like savings of anywhere from 40-90% on attractions, tours, boat cruises, theatre tickets, dinner spots and accommodations. The Groupon Halifax page is a smart place to check out when you’re first planning your trip and even when you’re in the middle of your Halifax visit because new deals get added weekly and even daily many times.
Destination Halifax is the tourism organization for the city of Halifax. Visit their website and you can peruse pages of package deals on Halifax things to do, last minute vacation ideas and hotels and accommodations. Search by the dates for your planned stay or by keyword. These convenient and fun packages are value-packed as many include your accommodations, transportation and admission into the attractions at a discounted rate compared to if you bought each element separately. To see the latest offerings just go to the package deals page of the Destination Halifax website. Make sure you grab a cup of coffee or tea first though as there are a lot of packages to check out!
Perhaps you’re planning to use Halifax as your base and to go off exploring from the city? If so, an excellent website to spend some time on is NovaScotia.com. It’s the tourism website for the entire province of Ontario. Here you’ll find package deals on Halifax attractions as well as some of the province’s most popular things to do which are located not to far from Halifax. Visit the packages page of the NovaScotia.com website and you’ll find package deals on an incredible array of things to see and do–everything from whale watching to wine tours. The website has done a nice job of grouping the packages into categories too, including “Nova Scotia Experiences”, “Family”, “Romance”, “Outdoor Adventure” and more.
As mentioned above, many travellers use the city of Halifax as their “base camp” when visiting Nova Scotia and after exploring the various sites and attractions Halifax has to offer, they venture outwards on day trips and adventures to explore more of what the province has to offer. With this in mind, ThriftyTourist.ca has put together a brief list of value-priced things to do, activities and outings that visitors who have come before you have enjoyed when visiting Halifax and the surrounding area. Don’t forget to book early though as these memorable activities and outings can sell out fast, especially during peak tourist season.
