Over the years, Halifax has grown and we've gotten some new additions to make this place we call home that much better. There was a time with no Burrito Places, Forever 21 or even an escape room. At times Haligonians feel a little left out from the rest of the world in terms of fast food places and cool attractions that a big city may have.
But I think that everyone can agree we still have some of the coolest spots around in terms of local shops and restaurants that can fit anyone's needs. That being said, if we had our way these are the shops and services we'd love to see happen in Halifax this year. One can always dream!
Yes, you will have to pay extra for guac, No, it won't matter to you once it's here
2. Drive In Theatre
Maybe you can sneak your friends in the trunk to the drive in since the regular theatre costs an arm and a leg. There are drive in Theatres around Nova Scotia including the Valley Drive In in Cambridge, but of course there needs to be one in our own backyard.
Who doesn't like pancakes?! IHop is so iconic for their breakfast and has an array of pancake flavours you're going to want to pour your Canadian maple syrup all over.
4. Olive Garden
Unlimited breadsticks...Enough said.
5. Sonic Drive-In
These commercials made you thirsty for a milk shake, Sonic is famous for their milkshakes and specialty drinks but they also sell pogo sticks... I need this in my life.
No seriously, why don't we have Uber yet? I mean I know it's against the law in NS but still...
7. Sweet Jesus
You've seen the pictures, you've dreamt of their ice cream art, now time to bring it to Halifax and make our dreams a reality.

14. A Pool Bar
If you've ever gone to Cabana Pool Bar in Toronto you know that a pool bar would add a crazy spot to Halifax's night life...or day life, since it's a pool bar.

18. Pogue Fado Back
If you talk to anyone in Halifax about Pogue Closing...they get a little emotional. This Halifax bar had live bands and $3 drinks, Haligonians have spoken and want the Pogue back.
