Drive your hire car a few blocks from the harbour to Sackville Street, where you will find the Citadel Hill, one of the most important historical sites in the city. This well-preserved site, complete with fortress and cannons which are fired daily, is definitely a great way to begin your visit.
Just across the road from the fort, you can visit another of the city's great attractions, the Public Gardens. Graced with statues and fountains the area is filled with lush gardens and collections of grand trees and shrubs and is also home to lots of friendly ducks, geese and swans.
To learn about the city's past and in particular its close connection with life by the sea, drive your car down to the waterfront and visit the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. The museum contains a great collection of displays, including artefacts, charts, and other historical items, as well as a collection of small ships. The highlight is without a doubt the impressive HMCS Sackville, a WWII battleship which has been fully restored and is docked beside the museum.
