Where - Halifax
We're in Dartmouth, just minutes away (by ferry, bus or bridge) from bustling Halifax, which is a very walkable city.
We've had a few visitors here due to work (banking, politics, marine, universities or hospitals), the arts (theatre and symphony) and pro sports (Halifax Mooseheads hockey, Halifax Wanderers soccer, Halifax Thunderbirds lacrosse).
The Saturday Seaport and Farmers markets are a must.

We're a 5-min walk from the Dartmouth ferry, a major bus terminal, the main library and 5 good pubs (Celtic Corner, Battery Park, Brightwood, New Scotland, Dahlia). There's a cafe next door (Café Marco Polo), and 3 great restaurants just 1-min walk away (Millstone, Dahlia, Jukai Japanese and Thai). But getting to Halifax is so quick and easy, we do most of our socializing over there (numerous excellent theatres, restaurants, shops, bars, clubs, sports venues - all within walking distance from the ferry).
Halifax is the capital city of Nova Scotia and is very walkable (OK, we do have one hill!). With six degree granting institutions, it is both young and lively. There's more pubs per capita than anywhere else in Canada. But as a 17th century garrison town, it has much history and fine architecture. We're 1.5hrs from Peggy's Cove, 5hrs from Cabot Trail/Cape Breton. Usually good weather May-Nov, but it's best during the fall colours late Sept-early Oct. And it's VERY friendly.

Nearest golf course - Brightwood - a 10-minute walk.
I'm not a golfer, but there are a dozen excellent golf courses with 90-mins of Halifax:-
Brunello (#5 in NS); Glen Arbour (#7); Old Ashburn (#8); Chester (#11).
