There are many organized tours of Halifax and the surrounding area available. Several locally operated companies offer door to door service from the Waverley Inn with daily scheduled city tours and day trips. The Waverley's staff can recommend and reserve tours to fit your schedule and interests.
Peggy's Cove is on the South Shore of the province, Route 333, about a 35-40 minute drive from the Waverley Inn. It is known for its widely photographed lighthouse and legendary beauty. On the rugged shore of the Atlantic, Peggy 's Cove is a picturesque fishing village worth visiting on a sunny day that will allow for exploring by foot.
Further along The Lighthouse Route are many charming seaside communities, white sand beaches, and beautiful ocean vistas. A day's exploration along the coast is the perfect trip for seekers of the not-so-traditional souvenir or that rare antique find.
