Why did we select Halifax to visit in May you may wonder?
1. We had United credits from 2020 when we planned a visit to the Grand Tetons but had to cancel because of Covid.
2. In 2023 that United credit would only fly us as far as Halifax because of inflation.
3. We wanted to visit a nice small town and not be dependent upon a car to see the sights.
4. Friends recommended Halifax as a nice city to visit.
Our flight was out of Boston Logan airport and the best way to get there was to leave the driving to Dartmouth Coach service. It was almost a 3 hour trip. We left home at noon on Tuesday the 9th, caught the bus at 1:00, arrived at the airport at 3:40, got through security using TSA precheck for the first time (what a breeze that was), had an early dinner, boarded the plane at 5:30 for 6:05 departure, lost an hour because Halifax is one hour ahead, and arrived at the airport at 8:30. But the airport is a half hour from town so we had a cab ride to our hotel -The Westin Nova Scotian - arriving sometime after 9:00.
