Dartmouth Overview

Dartmouth is Halifax’s sister city and is located across the harbour. Dartmouth is spread out over a fairly large area with a population of approximately 160,000 people.

Dartmouth is primarily a residential housing market with a small downtown business core. The exceptions to this are its abundance of retail shopping choices and Burnside Industrial and Retail Business Park. The Park is the largest of its kind east of Montreal and roughly 30,000 people work in the park and many more thousands visit daily.

Dartmouth is called The City of Lakes and features many homes situated on fresh water. There are many activities offered on the water year round, including public beaches, paddling, skating, etc.

Given Dartmouth’s location, across the harbour from Halifax, the only direct driving route to Halifax is via one of two bridges. Traveling around Dartmouth is very smooth, with a well planned and developed road and highway system. There is congestion during the morning and evening rush hours on both the Halifax and Dartmouth approach to the bridges. Most of the time however, the traffic runs very smoothly in both directions. There is also a very good transit system, including several ferry locations, taking people from public parking to Downtown Halifax.

The travel time from Dartmouth to downtown Halifax depends upon where you live in Dartmouth, but will run between 15–30 minutes during regular travel hours and between 20-40 minutes during rush hours.

Some of the best shopping in the metro area can be found in Dartmouth. Both large indoor and outdoor shopping centers are in abundance as well as all the major box chain stores.  Every commercial, automotive, and hardware need can also be met. 

There is a great variety of house styles and prices to choose from and there is definitely a house to fit everybody’s needs and price range in the area. You can also find a wide selection of condominiums as well.
