From April 12, 1776, to today, Halifax County has always welcomed visitors with open arms to our communities.
Our tourism community is strong and made up of large businesses and small family businesses that have done a great job growing this industry over the past several years.
Today the Visit Halifax team has worked to compile this landing page that provides information on how you can support our local restaurants and hotels that are staying open to serve you.
Everyone is working hard to follow government mandates and maintain health and safety as our top priority.
Please follow the links below for what we hope will be helpful current information.
