New Brunswick Family Day Trips & Destinations

New Brunswick Family Day Trips & Destinations

When it comes to family travel, I truly believe in exploring where we are from. Last summer we started a series called #StopToSeeNB, hoping to encourage more people to explore and visit our picturesque and heritage rich province. In 2020, with the province in a state of emergency and our borders closed, we have put together a resource to help you plan some New Brunswick day trips and weekend destinations this summer. This list will be updated and grow as we visit more places.
Our travels will be a little different this summer, with some destinations not opening or having limited services. 

PLEASE check with each destination before heading out to ensure they are open and what precautions or limitations to service they have in place at this time. You may be required to wear masks, there may be closed areas or limited services.
