Dartmouth has beautiful waterfront views of the Halifax Skyline, unique local shops and plenty to explore.

Dartmouth has been nicknamed the City of Lakes, after the large number of lakes located within its boundaries. It has also been called Halifax's Brooklyn. This community is full of culture: you will find painted murals covering the downtown area, along with hip boutiques and trendy local restaurants. Downtown Dartmouth is a great place to live, shop and eat!

Dartmouth is popular with those who wish to still be close to the Peninsula, but want to pay less and are not keen on the hustle and bustle of Downtown Halifax. Dartmouth has seen an increase in development in recent years, with the addition of the Dartmouth Crossing Shops and restaurants, the Kings Wharf Condo buildings and more. The traffic is lighter, there are many subdivisions to choose from and it is connected to Halifax by two bridges. You will likely need a vehicle or some form of transport to commute into Halifax if you decide to live in Dartmouth.
