Actually I didn't buy the ticket but almost settled for a one way ticket. Luckilly the little light bulb came on in my head just in time and I half jokingly asked if I could have a round ticket for the same price.
As far as pushing somebody in a wheelchair, no frigging way (no offence meant to Mrs B). The hills are a little too big and steep for my liking. I get pooped out even if I don't make any wrong turns.
I find the motorists very pedestrian friendly with some even stopping for green lights to let pedestrians cross.
I have six rules for getting around in Halifax:
1=Always bring a map.
2=Always read the map.
3=Sometimes you have to hold your map upside down to get to where you're headed.
4=Always lookout for the turn lanes. Ninety five percent I'll get caught in a turn only lane.
5=If you make a wrong turn, don't assume counting 1 2 3 4 corners will put you back in the right direction. Halifax has a few three and five sided blocks and you will end up in the wrong direction.
6=Stay off the Armdale Rotary. This is the only traffic circle I've ever seen with traffic lights on it. No mater if you stop, go, or yeild you will always p155 off somebody.
If you ever get lost remember all roads lead to Robie Street unless you're on the Dartmouth side of the harbour, then only a couple of them do.
If you ever see Mrs W don't her ask why it took me two hours to drive from Citadel Hill to the casino. We still can't figure that one out. Just blame it on the map, the turn lanes, the five sided blocks, and the Armdale Rotary (even though I was no where near the rotary that time).
"Good sidewalk surfaces? Flat? Plenty of benches for resting and looking at water or people watching?"
As far as I can see lots of the above.
