It’s the last month of spring season but that doesn’t mean the fun should end! Halifax is packed with events, adventures, and blooms. With Discover Halifax’s list of things to do in Halifax in May, you and your family and friends can make the most of the month!
See Halifax in full bloom
Looking for the greatest locations to enjoy the view? The Halifax Public Gardens, the only authentic Victoria Garden in North America, are the place to go if you want to feel as though you’ve stepped into a fairy tale. Take a stroll through to observe a variety of spring flowers, and if you’re fortunate, you might even spot the cute ducklings scuttling around.
Find over 30 cherry trees bursting with pink blossoms on the eastern edge of the Dartmouth Commons by Leighton Dillman Park on Park Avenue if you’re looking for the best places to see cherry trees in full bloom. Be sure to bring a camera to this location to get the most beautiful spring Instagram photos.
