New Brunswick at a Glance

Richly forested New Brunswick has the sunniest winters in Canada and some of the warmest summers. Fine weather makes New Brunswick a great place to enjoy the outdoors, whether that's hiking the northern most edge of the Appalachian range or paddling a sea kayak around ocean inlets.

When in New Brunswick, it is important to get off the highways. Small towns have farmers' markets, antique shops, pubs and live music. Seacoast villages hum with the sounds of fishing boats and working harbors. Charter a boat for whale watching, head out on a sea fishing expedition, or propel yourself in a canoe or kayak. Ocean waters are surprisingly warm and many, especially kids, enjoy swimming in summertime. If you visit the coastal city of St. John, don't forget to marvel at the Bay of Fundy's spectacular high tides.

Get away from the ocean with inland bike rides, tours of B&Bs or week-long hiking excursions. Smatterings of craft studios, local potters and art galleries mean that art hounds have plenty to look for. Sit back, relax and enjoy New Brunswick.
