Dartmouth NS Hotel Discounts
Dartmouth, now part of the Halifax Regional Municipalities has a long connection with her sister city across the bay. In 1917, two WWI ships collided and exploded severely damaging the harbor and both cities. Five years before, the Titanic bound for Halifax sank and the two cities' volunteers took on the task to recover survivors and victims. See the Dartmouth Heritage Museum, along with the 1700's Quaker House and 1800's Evergreen House. Tour the Black Cultural Center of Nova Scotia and trace the immigration family trees at the Family History Centre.
