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. It is one of the country's hippest neighbourhoods. Dartmouth is great for those who wish to be close to Halifax, but want want a quieter space to call their own. 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!
