All About New Brunswick
Sharing a border with the United States, the eastern province of New Brunswick offers adventure for those looking to break out of their routine. Visitors can experience the vast terrain and rugged landscape in numerous ways here, like cycling along the Acadian Peninsula, which travels along narrow coastlines and through quaint inland villages and fishing ports. If you’re visiting during the first two weeks of August, check out the Festival acadien de Caraquet, with music, poetry, and art. You can also explore the many lighthouses that dot the New Brunswick coast.
If you’re looking to eat your way around New Brunswick, you’ll be able to pick up many locally-sourced vegetables, maple syrup, and fruits at the farmers markets, or enjoy a chef-prepared meal at a restaurant using locally-caught seafood. But it’s not just food and adventure in New Brunswick: places like Fredericton offer museums and art galleries galore, and Edmundston offers trendy bars and nightlife.
The best time to stay in a vacation rental in New Brunswick
The best times to visit New Brunswick are April through May and September through October. These seasons offer mild weather and a colourful landscape. The spring weather can be chilly, yet pleasant. However, the cooler weather is a decent tradeoff for the chance to watch spring bloom or fall foliage. Summer is the most popular time to visit New Brunswick, thanks to the warmer temperatures and festivals, including the Rendez-vous des artistes, the largest gathering of painters and sculptures in Eastern Canada, and the Atlantic Dance Festival. During the New Brunswick winter, icy sea breezes may keep you confined to your cottage rental or vacation rental, but you can still partake in skiing or snowboarding or even seek a bit of solitude.
Top things to do in New Brunswick
Bay of Fundy
The giant tides of the Bay of Fundy are the result of over 100 tons of seawater and can rise up to 39 feet twice every day. You can walk along the ocean floor during low tide at Hopewell Rocks and see the unique rock formations that tower nearly four stories above your head. Go for a whale watching trip and try to get a photo when they breach the water, or just sunbathe on the beach.
Roosevelt Campobello International Park
On Campobello Island, Roosevelt Campobello International Park lets you leap back in time to experience the 32nd American president’s summer home that sits on 2,800 acres of natural area. You can also participate in a Tea with Eleanor experience, featuring high tea, cookies, and a conversation with an expert guide on the former first lady’s life while staying on the island of Campobello.
Located just a stone's throw from St. Andrews, Ministers Island can only be reached at low tide when it is possible to drive across the ocean floor. The half-mile drive itself is worth the trip. And while it can be done in a standard, two-wheel drive vehicle, it is best to use four-wheel drive. Another option is to walk to Ministers Island along the ocean floor. Once on the island, explore the historic 19th and early-20th century architecture and period innovations.
