Josh Cruddas – At Home Here in Nova Scotia

Occupation: Actor, Musician

Place of Birth: Dartmouth, NS

Currently Resides: Halifax, NS

Where’s your favourite place in Nova Scotia to grab a coffee?

I’m not a coffee drinker because I’m pretty sure I would literally bounce off walls and not ever sleep, but I love having tea or hot chocolate at places like Jane’s and Uncommon Grounds! My hometown of Dartmouth has a nice spot too, called Two If By Sea...

Where’s your favourite place in Nova Scotia to grab a pint?

I actually don’t drink alcohol either, but that doesn’t mean I don’t go to bars and clubs a lot and have way too much fun, like many proud Maritimers! In Halifax I’m particularly fond of Niche Lounge, the Economy Shoe Shop or The Fickle Frog for dinner and drinks, and Pacifico or the Argyle for some dancing afterwards!

Where’s your favourite place to shop in Nova Scotia?

Would it be bad if I said the mall? ...Just kidding (mostly), but seriously there are some real gems at the Hydrostone market and along Spring Garden Road in Halifax, or in Lunenburg if you’re looking for some stuff rich in Nova Scotia’s sailing history and culture. There are also lots of farmer’s markets around the province if you’re looking for the freshest stuff around!

Where in Nova Scotia would we stand to see your favourite view?

There are so many to choose from! Looking out at the ocean is something that I always love to do when I get the chance, and the view on the rocks off of Peggy’s Cove is spectacular. Also, if you love a good cityscape, head down to the Peace Pavilion on the Dartmouth waterfront at night and you’ll see the lights of the lovely Halifax skyline reflect off the water...


Name 3 things we’ve gotta do when we visit Nova Scotia:

1. Experience downtown Halifax. It feels cosmopolitan and intimate all at once; it could be described as the perfect city (I might be a bit biased...). Take in some of the city’s great food and culture! For example, Neptune Theatre, where I got my first acting job as a teenager (in The Sound of Music) is among many wonderful places to watch some theatre, dance or visual arts. We’re very lucky to have such a vibrant cultural community in Halifax.

2. Find a way to see, hear and feel the ocean. Nova Scotia has beaches and trails that lead right into the Atlantic, and you definitely haven’t had the full NS experience until you’ve seen or swam in some waves.

3. Visit Cape Breton - it’s simply an incredible place for anyone interested in history, music, and life.

What makes Nova Scotia such a special place on earth for you?

In so many ways, Nova Scotia has shaped the way I am - as an artist and as a person. Having so many of my family and friends in this beautiful province makes any decision to leave really tough. However, even if my career takes me somewhere else, I know that there’s no other place in the world that I could ever truly call home.
