Sightseeing/good lunch near cruise terminal in Halifax and St. John
We're taking a New England/Canada cruise next month with stops in Halifax and St. John. We're hoping to just get off of the ship, walk around, and do some sightseeing on our own.
First, can anyone tell us how close the terminal is to "downtown" or any other sightseeing options?
Second, can anyone recommend a good local lunch place in this area that is family-friendly? It will be me, my wife and our (almost) 2 year old daughter.
In Halifax, we went to the Maritime Museum but did not had lunch on our ship. It was Thanksgiving Day in Canada so many shops were closed. Plus, I think may shops in the harbor area may have been closed for the season.
In St. John, one of the port officers recommended Billy's Seafood in the City Market. Had fish and chips and is was pretty good.
Thanks again for all of the information.
Hey Philly, this link might help you out for Halifax:
1055 Marginal Road is where Pier 21 is, which I think is where your ship should come into port. From what i've read elsewhere, the entire harbour walk is about 5 miles, and you're likely to encounter all sorts of restaurants along the way.
I'll mention as well, that your little one is likely to love this:
Assuming you're talking about Saint John, New Brunswick...and not St. John's, Newfoundland?? If it's Saint John, i think where you'll come into port is called the Uptown region.
