With the majestic Saint John River flowing through it, tree-lined streets and breath-taking historic architecture, the capital city is more than a pretty face. Fredericton is a vibrant city with something to offer for everyone; spend the day browsing art galleries, including the world renowned Beaverbrook Art Gallery and handmade shops; get in touch with nature by exploring the 120 km of trails or experience history first-hand in the Historic Garrison District.
A trip to Fredericton isn’t complete without sampling the wide array of ethnic cuisine at one of our local markets, or savouring the flavours of the growing local food movement present at many restaurants. If you’re a craft brew fan Fredericton is the place to go; as Atlantic Canada’s Brewing Capital, it only makes sense that the city has it’s very own Taproom Trail.
Fredericton is home to unique activities for the entire family! Play, discover and learn at New Brunswick’s ONLY hands-on science playground, Science East or travel back in time with Kings Landing, Canada’s largest 19th Century living museum.
Now is the time to explore the capital region, where culture, history and adventure are waiting for you!
From the dizzying heights of the Bay of Fundy tides, to the sandy beaches and warm salt waters of the Acadian coast, New Brunswick is home to spectacular natural wonders and first-class attractions. The province is renowned for its outdoor adventures, natural and recreational parks, pristine rivers, lively cities, picturesque towns and vibrant culture. Throw in a dash of Acadian “joie-de-vivre” and its people’s legendary warm and welcoming nature, and you have the makings of a truly unique Maritime experience.
The star of the New Brunswick show is the Bay of Fundy, which holds the distinction of the highest tides in the world and boasts marine life that includes several species of whales, stretches of wilderness coastline, and charming harbor villages.
The cultural scene is also rich in New Brunswick. First inhabited by Indigenous peoples (the Wolastoqiyik, Mi’kmaw and Passamaquoddy), New Brunswick was also the early battleground between Canada’s founding French and English cultures. This blend of cultures, histories, traditions and languages continues even today. Stop by one of the many pow wows held over the summer, learn a traditional craft, participate in Acadian day celebrations or just enjoy the friendly, open nature of our people who will happily share with guests the kind of local treasures that leave you feeling you have had a truly New Brunswick experience!
With so much to offer, your trip to New Brunswick will leave you with the kind of memories that will make you want to come back again and again.
