HALIFAX — Halifax has been named one of TripAdvisor’s Global “Top Destinations on the Rise.” The city was the only Canadian destination to make the list, which recognizes destinations based on increased interest, booking activity and positive traveller reviews.
In recognition of this award, Discover Halifax has launched “See What All The Love Is About” to thank those who helped the city become an emerging destination — and bring one lucky reviewer back to visit.
“Halifax has been many travellers’ best kept secret for a while, but that’s no longer the case,” says Ross Jefferson, president and CEO at Discover Halifax. “However, more people are taking notice of our amazing restaurants, events, shopping, attractions and outdoor activities. And when visitors do come, people and businesses go over and above to exceed their expectations. We want to share these stories.”
Last year marked Halifax’s fifth year of tourism growth, with room nights sold up 5.8 per cent over 2016 and 23.3 per cent since 2012.
