Things To Do in New Brunswick

Highlights From The Road to 150 New Brunswick Episode

New Brunswick surprised us in so many ways. From kayaking some of the highest tides in the world to walking around the historic streets of Fredericton, we experienced so much in such little time. We walked on the ocean floor during low tide, rappelled down a cliff at Cape Enrage, went back in time at King’s Landing, zip-lined over a canyon in Grand Falls, and stumbled across a military ceremony in Fredericton where we got to see a new commanding officer take charge complete with a marching band, marching soldiers, and the opportunity to go inside a LAV.

We also learned many new things, including:

  • New Brunswick is the birthplace of the Canadian Military
  • New Brunswick is officially the only bilingual province in Canada
  • The province’s name comes from a city in Northern Germany

New Brunswick is also relatively sparse in population, leaving tons of room for visitors to explore the vast natural landscapes of the province. Whether you’re looking for quaint seaside towns, small historical cities, beautiful natural scenery, delicious seafood, or fun adrenaline activities like rappelling and zip-lining, New Brunswick is the place for you!

Although I had gone to simple see the rocks and the rising tide, I was actually more amused by the hundreds of shorebirds silently flying across the bay just inches from touching the water. I really fell in love with these little birds, catching them in their annual migration down south. I couldn’t peel my eyes away from the absolutely majestic scenery. Everything was so silent and so smooth.

Then I looked besides me.

Towering next to me was the equally impressive Hopewell Rocks; a series of wonderful rock formation caused by tidal erosion. The biggest attraction in this neck of the woods is the largest ocean tides in the world. This area in particular rises and falls an average of 35 feet, twice per day. [Read more…]
