Along this long stretch of coast, there's no end to the must-stop places.
Pick what you'd like to explore and get going:

Saint John City Market

An original experience every time. Open 6 days a week, this wonderful old building contains country vendors and greengrocers, butchers and fish stalls, cafés, souvenirs and craftspeople. 

Buy just a bagel or a whole side of beef; pick up some fresh salmon or lobster, a loaf of crusty bread and some freshly made cheese. You’ll also find some of the finest crafts anywhere, whether you’re looking for that perfect gift, or just to treat yourself. 

Saint John Adventures

Saint John Adventures Inc. is pleased to offer Saint John’s only Zip Line Tour at Fallsview Park, right beside the World Famous Reversing Rapids. We offer amazing views of the falls from our six towers and thrills galore on our five zip lines. The last leg of our lines, a dual line so you can race with your buddy to the finish, zips over water rushing along side of the Falls Landing on False Island. 

Granite Town Wild Blueberry Festival

The third weekend of August we invite you to join us for the 7th Granite Town Wild Blueberry Festival. This wildly exciting festival celebrates St. George – The Granite Town as the “Home of the Big Blueberry.”

The beautiful town of St. George is the place where the Magaguadavic River meets the Bay of Fundy. Over the years, where the old meets the new, our culture and livelihood has evolved from granite, to shipbuilding, to lumbering, and now to where it is the heart of delicious wild blueberries, Atlantic salmon and many wonderful varieties of seafood.

Grand Manan Island

The Bay of Fundy attracts marine mammals, primarily to feed, although some reside year-round. The island provides one of the finest opportunities in the world to view several species of whales, including the rare North Atlantic right whale, sharks, seals, and sea birds. Grand Manan has more whales than any other area in New Brunswick - over 100 whales visit the waters around the island each summer.
Price Point: $45 (12 years and younger); $65 per adult

Fundy National Park

Connect with the land, the ocean and the wide-open sky at New Brunswick’s first national park, created in 1948. A coastal wonderland awaits! 

Set up in your choice of 3 campgrounds, then set off on adventure! The heated saltwater pool provides a refreshing place to relax after a long hike, and the playground provides hours of fun for the kids. Don’t forget about golf, tennis and lawn bowling!
