Travel Guide Intro
- Experience IHG Hotels in Dartmouth
Known as the City of Lakes, Dartmouth in Nova Scotia lies across a busy harbour from the more cosmopolitan Halifax, the town to which it was joined in 1996. Founded in 1750, when the city became home to over 150 English settlers, Dartmouth was primarily a fishing and farming community until later on in the 19th Century, when it became a busy manufacturing hub after the building of the Shubenacadie canal. You'll be sure to make the most of your time in this charming and friendly holiday destination when you stay in one of our well-appointed Dartmouth hotels, situated right in the heart of the action. Learn more about Dartmouth's fascinating past by visiting Shubie Park, a restored section of the impressive canal. Admire the incredible workmanship while you stroll along the winding trails that meander alongside it, and then pop in to the interpretive centre to satisfy your historical curiosity. Once you've wandered far enough, make your way to Dartmouth waterfront, where you can walk along the boardwalk to Alderney Landing, a cultural and performing arts centre that often hosts exciting events in its outdoor plaza. Take in a show at the theatre, pick up a locally-made trinket at the weekly farmers' market, or perhaps even sample some of the tasty regional produce. If it's food you're looking to sample, don't forget to try a lobster roll in Downtown Dartmouth, or to pick up some delicious fish and chips from one of a number of outstanding fish and chip restaurants located throughout the city. After a busy day exploring this delightful place, get a great night's sleep at one of our hotels in Dartmouth. With comfortable rooms and affordable prices, you'll be glad you chose to stay with one of the world's most trusted hotel brands.
