Walk along the Halifax waterfront boardwalk that follows the water’s edge alongside the world’s second-largest ice-free harbor. It provides one of the most cost-competitive locations for doing business in North America. The climate here is an eastern-maritime climate, with a short, warm summer and a cold winter. It is dotted with red-brick buildings, a broad seafront walkway, blessed churches, and museums, along with a quaint downtown with extraordinary charm.
