Best Places to Visit in New Brunswick

New Brunswick may surprise visitors with natural wonders such as the world's highest tides, some of the best whale-watching in the world, and the warmest saltwater swimming north of Virginia. Other attractions in the province, which borders Québec, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and the United States state of Maine, will appeal to people of different interests, budgets, and travel types.

Outdoor enthusiasts will appreciate miles of hiking paths, campgrounds, and exhilarating sea kayaking seas; history buffs will enjoy old houses and entire museum villages; and everyone will enjoy the abounding natural marvels.

Saint John, Moncton, and Fredericton, the provincial capital, are the three largest cities. Forests dominate more than three-quarters of the province's interior, and most of the province's greatest attractions are located near the coast. The St. John River travels southeast through beautiful, fertile farmland before joining the Bay of Fundy in Saint John, bringing Fredericton closer to the center. Keep in mind that this city's name is Saint John, written out whole; St. John's is the capital of Newfoundland.
