Things to do and See in New Brunswick

Fredericton


York-Sunbury Historical Society Museum


The York-Sunbury Historical Society Museum is a historical military museum, which was lots of interesting artifacts to look at. We recommended it if you are into military history.

 

The Bridge of Hartland

At 1282 feet, the wooden covered bridge in Hartland is the longest in the world. Built in 1901 to provide one of the few links across the Saint John River, this bridge is located just under one hour drive north of Fredericton close to the western border with Maine, USA. It was originally just an ordinary uncovered bridge but was later covered with the barn-like roof to keep the frozen snow and ice off its deck so the footing would not be so treacherous for horse-drawn sleighs in the winter.

 

New Brunswick Highland Games and Scottish Festival

This event held in Fredericton in late July every year, is an event that celebrates Celtic culture with highland dancing, music, and of course great food.  For more information on New Brunswick Highland Games and Scottish Festival go to www.nbhighlandgames.com

 

 

 

 

Moncton


Magnetic Hill Theme Park

This hill makes cars appear to go faster up the hill than down it as it appears as an optical illusion or maybe its just one of nature's mysteries?


Roads to Sea Guided Tours

The Roads to Sea Guided Tour is great as you will see Hopewell Rocks and the Bay of Fundy with the highest tides in the world scenery, beaches, rich Acadian, Loyalist and Mi'kmaq cultures. If you are in Moncton it is definite for everyone.

 

Centennial Park

Located off St. George Blvd. and admission is free. Centennial Park offers a large outdoor playground for kids and also a water playground (summer only). In the lower section of the park you can rent paddle boats on the man made lake and visit the island in the centre of the lake. On weekends you can catch many locals enjoying the sun and picnics. There is also an outdoor pool/beach which charges admission. Centennial Park also offers many wooded walking and biking trails which serve as cross country ski trails in the winter.

 

 

 

The Rest of New Brunswick


Bay of Fundy

One of the Marine Wonders of the World and you can watch the world’s highest tides at 16.3m (53 vertical feet ) rise and fall twice a day, every day. Cape Enrage offers one of the most spectacular views of the natural phenomenon from its towering cliffs and has been a lights and a fog alarm since 1838. The current light tower is over 150 years old. The site offeres cliff rappelling, rock climbing and the zip line over the cliffs.

 

The Acadians

This is the heartland of the Acadians and it’s found in New Brunswick’s Acadian Coast. Celebrate the soul-satisfying joie de vivre (joy of life), with their French culture and food at the 19th-century King’s Head Inn.

 

The Beaches

Jump in the sea and experience New Brunswick’s beaches, which are considered the best north of Virginia. The one that is highly recommended is Chaleur Bay (bay of warmth) for velvet soft sand and warm salt water. 


The Hopewell Rocks

The world’s highest tides have gouged four-storey sculptures out of the cliffs.  Walk around these towering “flowerpot rocks” on the ocean floor when the tide is low.  A high tide, the towers disappear, leaving little tree-topped islands in there place.


Acadian Coastal Drive

With long stretches of swimming beaches and eco-treasured dunes this is a drive you won’t forget.
