Halifax is the capital of Nova Scotia, and one of Canada’s most beloved cities. It is widely considered to be the hub of the Maritimes, with one of the world’s biggest natural harbours creating a both a business and tourist attraction. With its’ hilly streets and Maritime charm, there are so many beautiful areas of the city that choosing the right area to rent an apartment can be a daunting task.

If the hustle and bustle of the city is a priority, you should consider living in the downtown core. Renting downtown means being close to the waterfront and the four-kilometer long boardwalk. Being a port city, Halifax’s downtown is a busy area that has the feel of both a city and a Maritimes community. If you are contemplating renting in this area, you should certainly consider looking for an apartment with a view of the water.

If you happen to be a student, chances are you will want to rent as close to your school as possible. With both Saint Mary’s University and Dalhousie University near Robie Street, South Park Street and the surrounding areas, that particular part of town is a great place for students to look for Halifax apartments for rent. Besides being close to the universities, it is also an easy walk to the CTV Atlantic Studios and the Nova Scotia Community College.

Close to both the harbour front and both universities is The Halifax Common, or the “Commons” as it’s known by the locals. This is Canada’s oldest urban park, and it features tennis courts, soccer fields, a pool, playgrounds, baseball fields and a pavilion for music concerts. In fact, in recent years, it has become a hot spot for big concerts including Paul McCartney, Johnny Reid, The Black Eyed Peas and others, with concert shuttle buses running to various parts of the city during big events. Being close to the Commons certainly puts you close to the action.

Living north of the downtown core of Halifax might be ideal for anyone working in the shipping industry as the Halifax shipyard is in this area. In addition, members of the Canadian Navy would also be comfortable here as the CFB Halifax is nearby as well. An area like Bedford, a community even more north of the city, offers views of the beautiful Bedford Basin or a quick jaunt to the Bedford Boardwalk.

With so many beautiful neighbourhoods, it’s difficult to narrow down your search when renting an apartment in Halifax. However, if you know the kind of lifestyle that matters to you, Halifax can certainly deliver.
