A ten minute ferry ride from Halifax (or over one of 2 bridges), Dartmouth has many fine restaurants, shops and things to see. Plenty of room to park our large American SUV, which was often a problem in Halifax. Home of Theodore II, the tugboat (if you don't know who Theodore II is, ask a child under 5).
Quick Tips: Plenty to do with lodging less expensive than Halifax.
Best Way To Get Around: Park and walk, but public transportation is great and inexpensive.
