2019 New Brunswick Family Summer Bucket List! #StopToSeeNB

This summer we have a bucket list of activities to do and destinations to visit in New Brunswick with our children. We will be sharing ideas and things to see and do with a 6-year-old and a 16-year-old. We had to get creative on this one, it’s not always easy finding activities for these two!

Our goal for this summer with the kids comes down to finding new places to EXPLORE, new things to LEARN and trying new food to EAT. We will also be re-visiting some of our favourite spots along the way.

Here is our bucket list, and below you will find ideas in New Brunswick to fulfill this bucket list. These are the places we will likely try to fill our bucket list this summer.
