Reasons to visit New Brunswick

Did you know that New Brunswick is full of astonishing natural wonders, unique attractions, breathtaking landscapes, flourishing culture, and festivals to enjoy? It is one of the most beautiful regions of Canada.

In addition, visiting the place allows you to discover the beautiful areas of New Brunswick and its little treasures located just five to nine hours from Montreal to experience unforgettable moments.

From entertaining activities, tasty dishes, warm welcome, artisanal drinks, fresh lobster, visits to vineyards, and local products are on the menu to satisfy your vacation’s appetite. Here are the top five reasons to visit New Brunswick. Read on!

1.    Scenic Beaches

Sun worshipers, sandcastle builders, and paddleboard enthusiasts, New Brunswick is full of beaches perfect for swimming with family or friends. More than 50 of these spots overlook the landscape of the Canadian region, caressed by the warmest saltwater in Canada.

With average summer sea temperatures approaching 29 degrees Celsius, you will find that at Parlee Beach Provincial Park, Shediac, and southeastern New Brunswick, the beaches are as warm as the welcome, and lobster as good and fresh as the sea air.

In addition, Famous Kelly’s Beach is also popular for viewing incredible numbers of common terns, which congregate in the largest colony of common terns in Canada and one of the largest in North America.

The secluded and sandy beach of Grande-Anse offers exceptional scenery, as it hides between multitudes of rocks sculpted by the waves. Your family or children can also have a good time there and enjoy the picnic area, the volleyball court, and the playground.

2.    The Best Lobster

Lobster is the local star in New Brunswick. It tops the menu of every restaurant, whether fancy or inexpensive because the Bay of Fundy is one of the world’s largest reservoirs of these shellfish.

However, restaurants sell lobsters for a slightly higher price than the local salmon. You can consume it in all its forms: grilled, in soup, or even in a sandwich for hiking. You can fish it yourself in Shediac, a port whose fortune rests on the little beast and the beauty of its very gorgeous beaches.

3.    The Bay of Fundy

The Bay of Fundy in New Brunswick is a dream destination for tourists, with its highest tides in the world, reaching an incredible height of 48 feet (14 meters) and manifesting quite dramatically at the Hopewell Rocks. You will love gigantic blocks of stone shaped like flowerpots that you can walk around.

Moreover, the Bay of Fundy, where more than 12 species of whales migrate, including the rare North Atlantic right whale, is also a must for observation. We recommend discovering the two extremes by exploring the park on foot on the seabed at low tide.

4.    Outdoor Activities

New Brunswick is, first and foremost, a natural paradise. The landscapes are admirable, starting with the Bay of Fundy, famous for its tides’ gigantic height, which leaves bare rocks as high as hills.

In addition, you can go canoeing around the rocks of Hopewell. You can also go for more splendid walks in the immense park of Fundy. You can easily rent bicycles or kayaks. On the other hand, you can enjoy these splendors by car.

5.    Unique East Coast Vibes

New Brunswick’s finest town is Saint Andrews by the sea. You are on the American border, and on the other side of the bay, you can see Maine. Everything here is reminiscent of New England, in a very “Ralph Lauren” atmosphere.

Similarly, you can approach colonies of seals on a canoe in the beautiful Kouchibouguac Park, migratory birds at Mary’s Point, salmon and beavers in the Big Salmon River, moose everywhere along the roads. So, this is a perfect place for tourists who want to experience something unique in Canada.

Final Words

New Brunswick is famous for many reasons, such as the wild coastline, mesmerizing outdoor activities, including whale watching, bird watching, hiking, mountain biking, and kayaking. It is a perfect destination for tourists who want to relish unique culture, rich architecture, and eye-soothing scenic beauty. Until Next Time!
