2020 New Brunswick Family Winter Bucket List! #StopToSeeNB

Our Winter 2020 bucket list contains activities to do, experiences to enjoy and destinations to visit in New Brunswick with our children. We will be sharing our family ideas for things to do with a 7-year-old and a 16-year-old. Of course, many activities can be enjoyed by other ages as well, we are just sharing what we are doing and experiencing.

Our goal for this winter is to find new places to EXPLORE, new things to LEARN and trying ACTIVITIES as a family. We will also be re-visiting some of our favourite spots along the way.

  1. Great list! If you happen to be doing a 2023 update we’d love to see you and your family up at Snider Mountain this winter zipping through the forest and enjoying cookies and hot chocolate by the campfire before a sleigh ride back to the ranch. It’s for 8 and over so assuming we’ve done our math right both the kids would be able to join you now. :). Have a great winter!
