New Brunswick: Travelzoo Tips
Canada's only bilingual province is a visual stunning destination with dense forests, pebbled beaches, and the highest tides in the world.
We asked our members for their local tips and must-see sights, here are the Travelzoo member tips for New Brunswick.
Join the Loudest Festival in Canada
A few years ago Janice, creator of Solo Traveler wrote a guest post on the Festival Acadien de Caraquet. The loudest festival in the world is back for 2023, and in the first two weeks of August, you can join in. Be sure to save your energy for Aug. 15 for the Tintamarre, where a parade travels across main street making as much noise as possible for a full hour.
Visit Fundy National Park for the Highest Tides in the World
"On a trip to New Brunswick, stop at Fundy National Park to experience the rugged coastline of the Canadian Highlands. It's home to the highest tides in the world — tides in this zone reach a peak of around 16 metres, equal to the height of a five-story building! After the park, visit the town of Alma for a fresh-cooked lobster dinner. The best part of this experience is that you can have a drink, eat a lobster and watch the ocean all in one sitting." — Angela, Travelzoo Member
Seek Out the Hidden Waterfalls of Fredericton, New Brunswick
Seek out the waterfalls hidden along the Trans-Canada Highway in Fredericton, such as Garden Creek Falls at Mile Marker #1. "It is absolutely gorgeous and is within Fredericton city limits. It's nicer than waterfalls abroad!" — Lorry, Travelzoo Member
Step Back in Time at Kings Landing Historical Settlement
"The entire historical experience at Kings Landing is genuine. In addition to updated and repaired buildings, the original settlement buildings are exactly as the original settlers built and lived in. Local people both volunteer and are in the employ at Kings Landing, all dressing in original clothing styles suitable to the time period...And for the traveller who wants accommodation, a mere 15-minute drive will take you to hotels, motels and even better, to Mactaquac Provincial Park where you can pitch your tent and swim in the river!" — Jane, Travelzoo Member
See Big Axe in Nackawic, N.B.
“This is the biggest axe in the world. There’s a nice little park and a playground, and a three-kilometre nature trail along the river.” — Stephen, Travelzoo Member
Visit the Saint John City Market
"The architecture in uptown Saint John is truly amazing, and the Saint John City Market is outstanding. Many buildings have been renovated to their original architecture, and there are many shops and restaurants to visit." — Peter, Travelzoo Member
