What sites should we take in during a few-hour stop in Halifax?

Just visiting the city while on a cruise. Want to venture out on our own with a car. Prefer less popular (uncrowded, non-touristy) sites with local flair. One guest has limited mobility.

    I do like the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, with the permanent exhibit on the Titanic and the Halifax gas explosion, however if getting away from the city is your interest, drive to the lovely little village of Chester which is about 45 minutes southwest of Halifax on the tip of the Chester Peninsula extending into Mahone Bay. This part of Nova Scotia is gorgeous and Chester on Mahone Bay is a terrific sailing location with the sport culminating in Chester Race Week. As a little resort town, the beauty of the area and the sailing have drawn in the wealthy to build mansions, and "cottages" in which to summer, surrounded by lovely gardens. Just driving through Historic Chester along the streets with the old timber buildings, around Front Harbour and Back Harbour, and along the area of the beautiful summer homes is a great activity. And if you stop for a meal you are sure to find plenty of fresh seafood, and lobsters.
