Places to Visit Details

New Brunswick, Canada

Bay of Fundy

Bay of Fundy

This vast bay in the Atlantic Ocean is shaped like a funnel, creating the highest tides in the world that can measure up to 19 meters. The best sightseeing in New Brunswick is along the bay's coastline, where beaches, lighthouses, sea stacks, cliffs, caves, scenic drives, and parks make a picturesque landscape you have never seen before.Catching the tidal bore in Moncton  or Saint John is an impressive sight, when river flows reverse with the rising tide.

 

 

Hopewell Rocks

Hopewell Rocks

The Hopewell Rocks are a top sightseeing draw at both high and low tides. At high tide, the Flowerpot Rocks shap like tiny islands and kayakers paddle between them. When the tide level drops, visitors can walk on the ocean floor and look up at the heavily eroded pillars. The Hopewell Cape attraction has an informative interpretive center, an on-site café, and coastal walking trails.

 

 

Garrison District

Garrison District

In Fredericton, a British garrison was stationed at this site from 1784 to 1869. Today, two blocks of heritage buildings and grassy lawns broadened between Queen Street and the river, becoming the center of summer festivals, walking tours, and historical reenactments. There's also the city's changing of the guard when guards in period costume perform a drill ceremony. A lot of small museums are gathered in the district, including the Fredericton Region Museum (with its focus on area history) and the back-in-time classroom at the School Days Museum. The NB Sports Hall of Fame and the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design Gallery are also located in the complex.

 

 

St. Martins - Fundy Trail Parkway

St. Martins - Fundy Trail Parkway

The Fundy Trail Parkway visitors enjoy wonderful sightseeing and scenary is a scenic coastal drive that lies northeast of Saint John. It starts near St. Martins, once a bustling shipbuilding community, and continues along the coast. It's a slow-paced route, where lookouts and picnic areas provide views of coastal cliffs, isolated beaches, marine wildlife, and a Flowerpot Rock. A pedestrian and bicycle trail parallels the drive. There's an interpretive center at Big Salmon River with background on the one-time logging community. Kids will like the nearby suspension bridge.

 

 

Village Historique Acadien

Village Historique Acadien

On the northern coast of New Brunswick, Caraquet is a proudly Acadian community where most residents speak French. Just outside of town, Village Historique Acadien is an open-air museum that show life between 1780 and 1890. Costumed interpreters recreate a busy working village by spinning wool, making clothes, forging iron, printing books, and drying fish. Small wooden buildings, farmlands, and a quaint main street (complete with a hotel) make up the large complex.

 

 

Saint John City Market

Saint John City Market

Canada's oldest continuing farmers' market is situated in Saint John. A block-long building houses local vendors who display a variety of edibles, crafts, and souvenirs. The city had long been home to popular open-air markets when this building was completed in 1876. Luckily, the Great Fire in 1877 left the building (with its impressive, curved-beam ceiling) unscathed. Interestingly, a ringing bell marks the start and end of the shopping day, and make sure the market is closed on Sundays.
