With its cobblestoned historic district, cheerful residents, and fun entertainment choices, Halifax is a merry place to be during the holiday season. The city lights up with Christmas events and activities for every member of the family.
The Prince George Hotel, considered by many travellers to be the best hotel in the Nova Scotia capital, offers a holiday special starting at $129 per night for stays on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday from November 14 to December 29, 2013.
The hotel is one block away from the grounds of the Citadel National Historic Site and is also close to the Halifax Metro Centre, St. Paul’s Anglican Church, and the nightlife of Argyle Street.
Vacay.ca Discovers Nova Scotia Wines
Award-winning Canadian wines aren’t limited to Ontario and British Columbia. Vacay.ca Contributor Chris Makin explained the growth of the Maritimes’ successful wine culture in an article headlined “Why Nova Scotia Wines Stand Up to Europe.”
Makin writes: “The newest wine initiative outside of the Vintners Quality Alliance (VQA) is Nova Scotia’s Tidal Bay appellation. While the VQA strictly controls wine standards in the British Columbia and Ontario wine regions, the Nova Scotia appellation is based on the European model similar to the French Appellation d’Origine Controlee or Italy’s D.O.C wine classification. Hailed as the first true wine appellation in North America, Tidal Bay is designed to encourage winemakers to produce a product with qualities and characteristics unique to its Nova Scotia origins. It is hoped that it will also increase consumer awareness and add to the appeal of the region’s wines.”
